Before their intimate destination wedding, they dated each other for long. For all those who don't know, the two first met on the sets of a commercial shoot. When we first saw them on the screen together, we never knew the two would get together soon.

All these years, Virat Kohli never opened up about his relationship with Anushka. Recently, in an interview with sports reporter, Graham Bensinger, Virat Kohli shared about his first meeting with Anushka. 

He said, “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.

“I thought I was being funny (when I cracked that joke), and I said something which wasn’t probably the right thing to say. She is tall and she was wearing heels (makes a gesture which isn’t too much) 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,” he added.

“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. I was such a fool, to be honest. She was so confident, she is on sets regularly.”

Virat Kohli also went on to share how the relationship between the two developed since then. He said that the two are from same backgrounds and this helped them get together. He 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. In hindsight, when we look into our lives, they were going at the same pace but in totally different worlds.”

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma began their careers together in two totally different worlds. Virat Kohli shared, “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. We were talking real things, we were talking things that a lot of people don’t connect with, only if you have seen that life will you understand what we are talking about. So the connect was there immediately.”
