Anushka Sharma opens up on her relationship with Virat Kohli
She is sexy, sassy and self-assured. He is bold, bratty and brash. And the two together seem to be the perfect match.
Yes, the prince of Indian cricket and the team’s vice captain has cleanbowled actress Anushka Sharma. As images of Virat Kohli blowing a kiss to his girlfriend who was cheering him at the stands were splashed across social media and tabloids, it seems the two 26 year olds have indeed thrown caution to the wind regarding their relationship.
Just a few months ago Anushka found herself on a sticky wicket when the Indian team squarely blamed Anushka for Virat’s dismal performance in England. Following this, the BCCI categorically said a big ‘No!’ to the presence of girlfriends when the team is on tour.
But it seemed the tide had turned in favour of the men in blue at the CWC15. So was Anushka planning to go cheer Virat once again and give us some more memorable photo-ops? “No!” said the actress, claiming that she was busy with the release of her production ‘NH10’. But the truth is that it was beau Virat who asked her to keep away from the tournament.
Virat’s fiery temper got the better of him as he hurled abuse at a scribe for writing a nasty piece on him and Anushka. The actress in turn seemed far more calm and collected. Admitting to her relationship, Anusha said it was primitive to blame her for anyone’s poor or good performance. “These guys breathe, eat and live cricket, respect them for that,” she said also stating that Virat himself does not impact her professional performance. “I don’t impact his performance, don’t doubt his capability, respect him for that,” said Anuska, somewhat defensively like a true girlfriend.
But she did admit that during the team’s tour of England, the BBCI regulation did impact her. “Because I am a woman and in a relationship, everyone wants to know when am I getting married or engaged? Trying to spot an engagement ring and continuously prying into our lives. We are adults and know how to handle ourselves so let us be,” she stated indignantly.
This was perhaps the first time Anushka had been so candid about her relationship with the cricketer. And as the Bollywood grapevine goes it may as well be ‘Band Baja Barat’ for them, since the two are hopelessly devoted to each other.
Anushka’s will next be seen opposite former boyfriend Ranveer Singh in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’. Admitting that she and Ranveer are friends, neither she nor Virat liked the recent jibes made about them on AIB Roast.
Well, Anushka will be joining millions of fans cheering on the boys in blue as they progress in the tournament. A big cheer for the Virat-Anushka partnership!
