Indian cricketer Virat Kohli often speaks highly of his wife and Bollywood actor-producer Anushka Sharma. He never shyes away from accepting how she made him a better person and how his life changed forever after he married her. The couple, who acted rather secretive about their marriage in Italy, later left no chance to let the world know of their love and mutual admiration.
Today, on Kohli’s 34th birthday, we look back at the time he and Anushka expressed their feelings for each other.
At his first meeting with Anushka
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are known to have met on the set of an ad they were working on together, and Kohli was quite on the verge of meeting Anushka. To get rid of his clumsiness, he decided to make a joke, which didn’t end well. In fact, he later realized that it was also inappropriate to say to someone during the first meeting. Curious what the joke was? In the in-depth interview with Graham Bensinger, Kohli revealed: “She’s tall and she was wearing heels, and she was told I’m not that tall, I’m no taller than six feet…she walked in in heels.” and looked taller than me, and I thought, ‘Didn’t you get a higher pair of heels?’ She said, “Excuse me?” and I thought, ‘No, I’m just kidding.’ My joke became such a weird moment for myself.”
When Virat Kohli said Anushka is his ‘better half’ in every way
During his conversation with Dinesh Karthik, Kohli opened up his relationship with Anushka. He said: “If I hadn’t met her (Anushka), I don’t know where I would have been. She made me believe where I am and what impact I can have through what I do. She enlightened me as a person, and that eventually made its way into cricket. I couldn’t be more grateful and happier to have a life partner like her. She is definitely my better half.”
Anushka Sharma Said She Loves Virat Kohli Because…
In an interview with Filmfare, the 34-year-old actor said she loves Kohli “just because of the person he is”. Speaking of her marriage, Anushka shared: “I’m married to my best friend. I’m married to my confidante. I’m married to someone I love so much just because of the person he is. You talk about being misunderstood in life and then you meet someone who fully understands you. Then the world doesn’t exist. So for him and me, the world ceases to exist when we’re together.”
When Virat Kohli said he felt like he had known Anushka Sharma for ages, not years
While interacting with Vogue, Kohli shared how they both love to travel and as they plan their vacation, they don’t have to convince each other to do their favorite thing as they both have similar tastes. He said: “Travelling together is our favorite activity. We feel blessed that we like to do the same things, so we never have to struggle to convince each other for the kind of vacation we want, because we want the same thing.” He also added that their relationship is only about love: “We live loving each other every day. Our relationship has always been about love, and only love. We feel like we’ve known each other for ages, not just a few years.” .”
Anushka Sharma sometimes steals from Virat Kohli’s wardrobe because he gets happy
Anushka Sharma sometimes ditches her tailored designer dresses and slips into her husband Virat Kohli’s t-shirts and jackets, mostly because he likes to see her in his clothes. While interacting with Vogue, the actress once shared: “I actually borrow a lot from his wardrobe, mostly T-shirts and stuff. Sometimes I just grab his jackets. Sometimes I just do it because he feels really happy when I wear his clothes. ”
