In a recent interview, Indian run machine recollected his first interaction with wife Anushka Sharma and confessed that he was a nervous wreck. To start the ball rolling, Virat Kohli had to crack a joke on the heels that Anushka was wearing.
“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,” said Kohli.
“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 further 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,” he said.
Virat Kohli also opened up on how their relationship developed through the years.
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 a certain stage. In hindsight, when we look into our lives, we were going at the same pace but in totally different worlds.”
“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 our 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,” concluded Kohli.
