‘Bollywood and Cricket’ has always been a match made in heaven, but somehow the Anushka-Virat romance isn’t just that – it’s something different. The couple got married in 2017 in a fairytale wedding in Tuscany, and have been setting couple goals ever since. Be it their appearances together at events or their online display of affection for each other; Anushka and Virat are in love, and very much prove so, every single day! Anushka Sharma feels that the reason that she and Virat Kohli click so well is because they are two very similar people.
In an interview to Filmfare, Anushka Sharma said that they both bond over many things without being dishonest with each other –
His honesty is something I deeply value. I’m an honest person and have suffered on account of that. He’s brutally honest too. I’m so happy that I met someone like him because we both lead our lives with complete honesty. It’s so transparent and clean. I have a life partner with whom nothing is pretentious. Everything is real.
Anushka further said that she and Virat both support each other in whatever they do.
He’s someone, who’s constantly trying to get better professionally and as an individual. I’m also like that. We don’t take ourselves so seriously. We’re similar as people. That’s why we get along.
Anushka Sharma was often asked about the fact that she took the plunge into marriage at the age of 29 – which is still considered early for a female actor in the industry. She answered the same in the interview –
Marriage was a natural progression. I’ve always stood for women being treated equally. So, I wouldn’t want to experience the most beautiful moment of my life with fear in mind. If a man doesn’t think twice before getting married and continues to work, then why should a woman think about it?
This has also been a trend in recent times, wherein the Bollywood fraternity has seen some of the biggest actresses including the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, and Sonam Kapoor tying the knot within a span of a few months. Anushka speaks about the same-
I’m happy that more actresses have got married. People in love are going out there and expressing it. It’s so beautiful to see happy couples together.
Does Anushka Sharma feel that audiences are affected by the marital status of the actors and actresses they see on-screen? Sharma doesn’t think so, as she says that our audience is way more evolved than our industry is.
Audiences are just interested in seeing actors on screen. They don’t care about your personal lives, whether you’re married or whether you’re a mother. We need to get out of this headspace. I got married at 29, supposedly young for an actress. But I did it because I was in love. And I am in love.
