Who knew that a dandruff-free shampoo ad could help you find your ideal life partner? Truly, Cupid can strike you anytime; all you need is just an ‘eye for detail’! Can you guess who we are talking about? As many of you might have guessed it right, we are talking about none other than, the amazingly good-looking couple, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli!
Be it defending Anushka Sharma from Twitter trolls for India losing a match to standing up for what they feel is right, the couple always gave us some serious relationship goals. For the next 7 minutes, put yourself in an ‘awww’ mode as you check out the adorable pictures and various quotes of Virushka which compels us to make our existing relationships like them or find a new love (the last tip is only for singles!).
Love happened to them in the summer of 2013 on the sets of a shampoo commercial. From the very beginning of their relationship, Anushka and Virat were most of the times found hanging out together on the sets or Anushka accompaying Virat on cricket tours. Little did they know what was in store for them.
Virat has time and again shared how lucky he is to have a person like Anushka in his life. At an interview with Gaurav Kapur on Breakfast With Champions, Virat shared:
"Sir lady luck ka kamaal hai (I've got to thank the lady luck). You've (Gaurav) seen me, you know I had no brains before. Ever since the lady has come into my life, she's taught me a lot of things. I've learnt a lot, become more sensible in the last 4 years all because of her. She's taught me how to be more patient and taught me how to utilise the position you are in to the fullest"
The duo made it a point to visit each other (almost everytime) during birthdays and other celebrations. Post marriage, Virat has never shied away from posting lovey-dovey messages for his dear wifey. Before marriage too, Kohli shared in an interview:
"Luckily I have never tried to change myself over the years. But the flip has been because of her. That period in England in 2014. Anushka was there in my life, she understood what I was going through so she kept me motivated. Her support helped me push through, however bad it was for me. She was a constant in that time... And then Australia happened (the tour in 2014-15 when Kohli scored four hundreds in four Tests) and I ended up scoring runs, in her presence. So it was a special thing for both of us because she also faced a lot of flak"
Whenever it comes to appreciating wifey's work, Virat makes sure that he leaves no stone unturned. Post the release of Pari's trailer, this is what Virat posted on his Instragram page with the film's poster.
"Can’t wait to watch my one and only in an avatar never seen before and I’m blown away already. Can’t wait @anushkasharma"
Instead of alleged break up rumours doing rounds on media and the duo unfollowing each other from their respective Instagram pages, they shunned every rumour when they walked hand-in-hand at Sagarika and Zaheer Khan's wedding. Not even 15 days later, they shocked everyone with the news of their marriage. Post-marriage timepass for the duo seems to be mostly chilling with each other.
When Anushka was a victim of insensitive Twitter trolls for India's loss, Virat took a firm stand and ensured that his lady-love is well-protected on social media. This is what he posted and he taught us how a stand is taken.
"Shame on those people who have been having a go at anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what i do with my sport. If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity. This was long time coming. Shame on these people that hide and take a dig. And i dont need any respect for this post. Have some compassion and respect her. Think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public. #nocompassion#nocommonsense"
The honeymoon period was truly a bliss for the couple. Virat, mostly, was seen posting pictures with his beautiful wife with mushy captions like this. (We drool again!)
"Cape Town is such a beautiful place and even more beautiful with my one and only!"
Isn't this snap worth a thousand..no..a million words? While Anushka's profile is the picture shared above, Virat shared this picture on his Insta profile which said:
"My one and only!"
A few months before marriage, Anushka accompanied Virat in Sri Lanka where the Indian cricket team was supposed to play a test series against Sri Lanka. This adorable video shows both of them planting saplings together. Watch and go 'awww' as the beautiful couple plants saplings around. Oh and p.s., Virat and Anushka are avid environmentalists. Their wedding card also contained a small sapling which embarked the beginning of a new life. How thoughful, aren't they?
In an interview with Star Sports, Virat spoke about how Anushka is and was one of the prime reasons for his stupendous achievements in the world of cricket. This is what Anushka's loving husband has to say about her:
"I was in Mohali and there was a Test series going on. I was with Anushka then, she had come to visit me. Surprisingly, when I became the Test captain then also she was in Melbourne with me. That was a very special moment we shared together"
He further added:
"What was more beautiful was that, I was able to share it with Anushka. It was something that I will always remember"
The couple tied themselves in the bond of holy matrimony on December 11, 2017 and shared this beautiful marriage to their fans around the world.
"Today we have promised each other to be bound in love for ever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you.This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans & well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey."
And, thus began the Sharma-Kohli fairy tale as they lived happily ever after...
We have lost count of how many goals this adorable couple will set for us! Anushka and Virat, lovingly called ‘Virushka’ by their fans, are considered to be one of the best looking couples in the industry and the camaraderie between them is just perfect! (Do Read: Met, Fell In Love ButRead More
