Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma are a popular celebrity couple in India. Their love story is an inspiration for everyone else as they started with an awkward joke. In December 2017, they tied the knot at a lovely destination wedding in Italy. Anushka has been attending Virat Kohli’s matches both for the Indian team in the country and abroad and even during his IPL tournaments over time.
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma is one of the leading actors of Bollywood at the moment, and she has not only acted in movies but also produced few movies in Bollywood. She has also come up with her own clothing line named ‘Nush’ and was last seen on the silver screen with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in Zero. Anushka Sharma had made her debut with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in 2008 with King Khan under the Yash Raj banner.
Kohli has shared his first meeting with his better half Anushka Sharma, which happened on the sets of a commercial shoot for a shampoo brand. “The thing that fascinated me the most was how relaxed and chilled out for what she already was at the stage. She was welcoming and comforting. These are things that helped us become really friendly,” Virat Kohli was quoted as saying during a candid chat with India Today’s Consulting Editor, Sports, Boria Majumdar.
“We started cracking jokes. I was the one who was fooling around all the time. Some jokes were really silly but that’s how I am. I love having a good time and having a laugh. I am really glad that shampoo commercial happened,” Virat Kohli added.
Before their wedding in December 2017, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were in a relationship for four years and are now settled in Mumbai. Kohli has often sung praises of his wife as to how she has helped him become more mature and sensible.
