Virat Kohli reveals his love story with Anushka Sharma

Anushka has earlier spoken about her marriage and romance, while Virat never as he loves to keep it simple. But recently, he opened about love, marriage and honeymoon to American television sports reporter Graham Bensinger at a interview. 

During the interview, Virat is seen blushing and speaking on how nervous he was when they (Anushka and he) first met. “The first time I met her I cracked a joke immediately. I was very nervous and that’s why I cracked a joke because I didn’t know what to do. I was standing on sets and was being all nervous and jittery. She is tall and she was wearing heels and she was being told that I am not that tall, I am not 6 feet plus or something... she walked in with heels and was looking taller than me and I was like didn’t you get a higher pair of heels. Then she was like ‘excuse me’ and then I was like ‘no, I am just joking’. My joke became such a weird moment for myself," Virat smiled and said. 

Further talking about how he and Anushka are similar, Virat said, “She is also from a similar background as me. We come from middle class families, made it in their respective careers, worked hard, got to certain stage. The timelines of my debut is 2008, the timeline of her starting her first film, shooting for it was 2008 August. We met in 2013 and out lives have been so similar in totally different worlds and then we got along so well."

Giving details about his first date with her, Virat said, “It was pretty traditional; we would go out for meals. Eventually you didn’t really have to ask out because both of us knew we liked spending time with each other. I don’t even remember when we thought ‘okay this is the time when the transition is happening’, it was so organic and natural. We knew that we just wanted to be with each other.”

When asked about how he proposed to Anushka and what was her reaction to it, Virat stated that "things were all so organised, it just happened. At that moment, one of his friends, seated with the crew, spoke about how Virat and Anushka’s friend circle knew that marriage would happen. So, once it so happened, they all got together at his home and he said that he needed to tell something to them. Then, he said that he is getting married and they were that ‘okay, we know’. And then he added ‘but in two months."

Revealing about his big day and honeymoon, Virat claimed that everything was organised by Anushka as he was in the middle of a series. She was the one who decided on the location and keep it confidential. He went to say how there were just 42 people at the wedding and then had a celebration for her industry friends and for his cricketer friends. 

Talking about his honeymoon in Finland, Virat asserted that “So we go to Finland. We were hoping to see the Northern Lights but we just could not because it was snowing for all three days. There was literally no pollution and so few people around. We were happy that we are not getting noticed by anyone. But then a Sikh guy with a turban looked and noticed us."
