After being in a steady relationship for a long time, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma dropped a pleasant surprise when the lovebirds tied the knot in a hush-hush ceremony in Italy in December 2017. Their wedding was the talk of the town.
While Virat and Anushka exchanged wedding vows almost two years ago, their love story began in 2013 when they met each other for the first time on the sets of a shampoo commercial. Interestingly, it wasn't a smooth sailing for the star cricketer.
In his recent interview with American television presenter, Graham Bensinger, Virat walked down the memory lane and recalled his first meeting with Anushka.
Virat Was A Nervous Wreck When He Met Anushka For The First Time
Virat recalled, "The first time I met her I cracked a joke immediately. I was very nervous and that's why I cracked a joke because I didn't know what to do."

"I was standing on sets and was being all nervous and jittery. I thought I was being funny (when I cracked that joke), and I said something which wasn't probably the right thing to say."
This Is How Virat's Joke Fell Completely Flat!
He recalled, "She is tall and she was wearing heels (makes a gesture which isn't too much) and she was being told that I am not that tall, I am not 6 feet plus or something... she walked in with heels and was looking taller than me and I was like didn't you get a higher pair of heels. Then she was like ‘excuse me' and then I was like ‘no, I am just joking'.
It Was A Weird Moment For Him
"My joke became such a weird moment for myself. I was such a fool, to be honest. She was so confident, she is on sets regularly, " Virat further added.
Virat Even Recalled Their First Date
In the same interview, the Indian cricketer revealed, "It was pretty traditional; we would go out for meals. Eventually you didn't really have to ask out because both of us knew we liked spending time with each other. I don't even remember when we thought ‘okay this is the time when the transition is happening', it was so organic and natural. And it kept getting stronger and stronger. We knew that we just wanted to be with each other."
