Virat Kohli Finally opens up about his first meet with wife Anushka Sharma, admits to having felt nervous – read more inside!
Anushka, an actress, and Virat, the captain of the Indian cricket team, have had a love story nothing less than a fairy-tale and their secret wedding ceremony in Italy remains proof. But did you know they had an equally amazing and dreamy first meet? Well, yes. Virat, during an interview with an American sports reporter, said he was nervous while meeting Anushka as it was on the sets of an ad shoot. He added that before the shoot began, he felt he would make a fool out of himself in front of a professional actress. So in order to escape from being the subject of mockery, he ended up cracking a terrible joke.
“I remember my manager Bunty told me that you have this brand coming up, a known brand. I was like great, sounds good, sounds exciting…who is it with? And then he’s like it’s with Anushka Sharma. I was like are you kidding me? You got to be joking. He was like no I am serious. I was like, how the hell am I going to be in a frame with a professional actor. I am going to look like a fool. I have no idea how to do this. And then he’s like you will be fine, don’t worry. It’s a nice script. All fun and games and stuff. I was like okay fine and then the first time I met her, I cracked a joke immediately because I didn’t know what to do. And I was standing on set, being all nervous and jittery and then she came in and I cracked a joke. I thought I was being funny (laughs). I just said something which was probably not the right thing to say because she’s tall as well, and she was told that I am not that tall, I am not like 6 feet plus or something and you must not wear like massive heels or anything. So she walked in with (lesser) height of heels and she was looking taller than me so I was like, didn’t you get a higher pair of heels? She was like excuse me? And then I said, I was just joking,” Virat told during the interview.
Virat further added that after frequent meets on the sets, they realized that although they belong to different professional backgrounds but their root is similar. “I behaved like such a fool, to be honest, and she was so confident because she is on set regularly and I was just like how the hell I am going to go through this. But ya, it was a shoot that went on for 3 days and slowly she realized that we come from the similar background as me, middle-class family, got here after a lot of hard work, etc. We bonded over real conversations, connected on things that usually people wouldn’t understand unless they have experienced it,” Virat added.
Virat and Anushka tied the knot in 2017 at Lake Como in Italy on December 11, 2017, with close family and friends in attendance.
