Coming back to Virat Kohli’s revelation on his first meeting with Anushka, he recalled the moment when they met first time almost 10 years back in the year in 2013 during a commercial shoot.

“I remember this was 2013, I was just named captain for the Zimbabwe tour. My manager came to me and told me that I was going to shoot with Anushka Sharma. As soon as I heard this, I was so nervous. How the hell am I gonna do this? I was really nervous,” said Kohli to de Villiers in the Podcast.

I was so nervous – Virat Kohli

“Out of nervousness, I didn’t realize how tall she was. So, the first thing I told her when I saw her heels was, ‘Didn’t you get anything higher to wear?’ and she was like ‘Excuse me?’ It was so bad; I was so nervous. But then I figured out that she was a normal person and when we got talking, I realized our background was so similar. From there on we became friends and then gradually we started dating, it didn’t happen instantly,” he added later.

Talking about cricket, Kohli is currently in action with Team India in the ongoing three-match ODI series against Australia. Following this, he will play for the Bangalore franchise in the upcoming 2023 edition of the Indian T20 League.
