It is said that Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli first met each other in 2013 while filming for a TV commercial. Rumours of the two dating started soon after and fans across the country were rooting for the couple. But this wasn’t the smoothest journey for the duo. Virat’s bad performances at the pitch were blamed on Anushka but Virat stood up for his lady and put up this Instagram post defending her.

There were also rumours that the two had broken up but their numerous sightings together defied these reports.

Virat has been very open when it comes to speaking about his “lady luck”. He hasn’t hesitated to acknowledge that she has been a strong presence in his life.

Anushka also acknowledged their relationship but decided to stay tight lipped after their bond was scrutinised by fans and took away from the focus on her work. During the promotions of NH10, Anushka was visibly upset when a journalist was more interested in her relationship than her film.

Anushka was with Virat when he earned the coveted position of captain and has been with him through thick and thin.

Virat also appreciates her work and has made it clear by praising her films on social media.

The couple made their first red carpet appearance at the Vogue Beauty Awards in 2015.
