Anushka Sharma on her hush-hush wedding
It was six years years ago that the actor and the ace cricketer surprised the country with the news that they had gotten married in secret, in Tuscany. Although it seemed unusual for a celebrity couple always in the limelight, Anushka said that her and Virat Kohli's intimate, under-the-radar wedding was just a natural extension of their personalities. She responded, "We wanted to keep it genuine. We didn’t want it to be adulterated and touched by anything, which would remind us that we’re celebrities."
Anushka Sharma added, “We were with our parents and our siblings, who’ve sacrificed so much for us, our closest friends, who’ve supported us through our worst. If we’d allowed it to become public in any way, we would be reminded of our public standing. We didn’t want that. We just wanted to be like two people in love. We never counted for who we were publicly when we fell in love. Our beings fell in love. We wanted to feel that purity at our wedding. That’s why we kept it so close to our hearts and kept it away from anything, which would make us think about anything other than us and the people who were part of this. It was surreal.”
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's family
When Anushka was asked about her married life with Virat Kohli, the actor had said she married her 'best friend and confidant'. She said she was married 'to someone she love so dearly just because of the human being that he is'.
Anushka and Virat welcomed their daughter Vamika on January 11, 2021. They confirmed the news on February 1, 2021 via an Instagram post as they shared their first photo with little Vamika. Over the last few months, rumours about Anushka's second pregnancy have been doing the rounds, but the actor is yet to respond to them.
