- "I cracked a joke because I didn't know what to do," said Virat Kohli
- Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma got married in 2017
- "I was such a fool, to be honest," said Virat Kohli
Some love stories are meant to be and star couple Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's tale reminds us of just that. It is a well-known fact that Anushka and Virat met during a commercial shoot for a shampoo brand but did you know that the cricketer was super "nervous and jittery" when he first met the actress-producer. During a recent episode of Graham Bensinger's talk show In Depth With Graham Bensinger, Virat recalled the time when he first met Anushka and in order to conceal his nervousness, he cracked a joke. "The first time I met her, I cracked a joke immediately because I was very nervous. I cracked a joke because I didn't know what to do," Virat can be heard saying during a segment of the episode.
When Virat was asked if he remembers what he said during their first interaction, the 30-year-old cricketer chuckled and said, "I said something which wasn't probably the right thing to say." He said that Anushka, arrived at the sets, wearing a pair of heels and she looked taller than him. Now, Virat tried to break the ice and jokingly said, "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. I was such a fool, to be honest but she was so confident."
Here's a video of Virat Kohli recalling the incident:
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli got married at a countryside resort in Tuscany in a private ceremony in 2017 after dating for several years. The couple later hosted grand wedding receptions in Mumbai and Delhi, which saw the convergence of several Bollywood and cricket stars.
