However, for the longest time, they kept tight-lipped about their love story from their fans and the media. Today, we got our hands on a throwback video of the cricketer where he is seen talking about how they first met and hit it off.
In conversation with former cricketer Ab De Villiers, Virat recalled being named captain for the Zimbabwe tour in 2013. His manager told me that he was going to shoot with Anushka Sharma. As soon as he heard this, he was very nervous.
Virat revealed that the first thing he told her when he saw her heels was, ‘Didn’t you get anything higher to wear?’ and she was like ‘Excuse me?’ According to him, it was very bad and he was very nervous. But then he figured out that she was a normal person and when they got talking he realized their background was so similar. He added that from there on they became friends and then gradually they started dating.
Elaborately further, he added that it was not like they started dating immediately. They spoke for a long time. Eventually, she found him to be a decent guy. And then the rest is history.
Virat and Anushka are now proud and doting parents to their daughter, Vamika.
