Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are the power couple of Bollywood-cricket scene of the nation. The Indian captain married the Bollywood diva in December 2017 after a long courtship period, in a hush-hush wedding in Italy. The couple now resides in Mumbai as both have excelled in their respective careers, with Kohli becoming the successful Test winning Indian captain and Anushka Sharma turning producer.
Kohli, recently in an interview with American television sports reporter, Graham Bensinger recalled his first meeting with Anushka and admitted that he was a nervous wreck. The cricketer has in interviews and on social media admitted that being with Anushka, first in the relationship and then being married, had changed him as a person.
‘I cracked a silly joke because I was nervous’
In the video, Kohli says that he had met his future wife for the first time on a shoot for a TV commercial for a shampoo brand. When his manager informed that he will do the ad with Anushka, Kohli became nervous as he was not a seasoned actor, while Anushka Sharma had proved herself to be a superstar on the silver screen and recalled making a silly joke about her height in order to break the ice.
In an attempt to cover his nervousness with humor, Virat remarked the actress on her height but it turned out to be a completely weird joke. She had not worn heels as she had been informed that Kohli was not a 6-footer and hence when Kohli met her, she still was taller than him and Kohli quipped that haven’t you got any higher heels than this. Anushka apparently didn’t like the badly framed joke and it broke the ice between the two.
A nervous Virat stood there embarrassed, while Anushka looked extremely confident and professional. Despite being in two different professions, the two hit off and given that they belonged to similar backgrounds, their timeline of career graph was similar, which helped in them turning great friends and then got involved romantically. Ultimately, they are now known as Virushka.
