Virat Kohli reveals his love story with Anushka Sharma: ‘The first time we met, I was all nervous, jittery’

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are the among the ‘it’ couples of India, so much so that their reputation spreads much beyond India and the Indian diaspora. Their romance and later their Italian wedding had their fans going gaga about them. While Anushka has spoken about her marriage and romance, Virat has rarely opened up about it. Now, speaking to American television sports reporter Graham Bensinger, he said how he was the nervous one when they 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. 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. 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.”
