On Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's anniversary, their most romantic quotes about each other
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are celebrating their second wedding anniversary today. To mark the special occasion, we've rounded up some of the sweetest things Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have said about each other.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, or ‘Virushka’ as they are fondly referred to as, made headlines long before their hush-hush wedding ceremony in Italy on December 11, 2017. Exactly two years ago, the Bollywood star and the captain of the Indian cricket team tied the knot in a beautiful and simple wedding ceremony at Borgo Finocchieto — a luxury venue in Tuscany — that made news across the world.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli continue to make headlines with their relationship, whether it’s Sharma attending the Cricket World Cup to cheer Kohli on, or Kohli's hyping up his wife as she works out at the gym. The pair doesn’t shy away from expressing their love: They stand up for each other on social media, take adorable vacation selfies, and have a way of making twinning at the airport look non-cheesy. It's safe to say, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kolhi have raised the bar quite high when it comes to romantic expectations.
The way Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli speak about (and look at) each other — in their social media posts, as well as in interviews — can make even the most pessimistic believe in love. In fact, if you didn't used to believe in love or fairytales, then these two might just change your mind.
To mark Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's wedding second anniversary today, here are some of their quotes that show just how smitten they are with one another.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli celebrate two-year anniversary with sweet Instagrams
Today is a big day for the Sharma-Kohli household, so we knew they were going post about it on Instagram. "The thing about love is that it's not just a feeling , it's much more than that. It's a guide, a propeller, a path to the absolute truth. And I am blessed, truly, wholly blessed, to have found it ❤️ ????" Anushka Sharma captioned the above unseen black-and-white wedding picture that she posted Wednesday morning, of her cosying up to her husband. Virat Kohli, too, took to Instagram to post a sweet message to his wife on their special milestone. "In reality there is only love and nothing else. And when god blesses you with the person who makes you realise that everyday, you have just one feeling, gratitude❤️," he wrote along with the black-and-white shot of the couple below.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli announce their wedding in a heartfelt post
Anushka Sharma and husband Virat Kohli are one of the country’s most followed power couples; any social media post from one that involves the other becomes dream click bait for those in the business. Unsurprsingly then, they broke the internet, when the then newly-married couple released a joint statement on their social media on December 17, 2019, stating, “Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share this wonderful news with you. This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans and well-wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey.”
Anushka Sharma on the similarities they share
Though Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli enjoy keeping their life private — their secret wedding in Tuscany came as a surprise to everyone — they do open up about their equation every once in a while. Most recently, Sharma revealed fresh details about her equation with Kohli in an interview with Filmfare, and spoke about the similarities they share. "Honestly, we’re quite similar as people. We like doing the same things. We get such little time to be with each other that when we’re together, we just want to chill. We’re happy just walking around when abroad. We just want to spend that time being normal — buying water or knickknacks at the supermarket. Both of us take pleasure in these little things. I find it hard to say what ways we differ in."
Virat Kohli also spoke out about their similarities
Virat Kohli, too, shared details about himself and Anushka Sharma in an In Depth with Graham Bensinger interview. The cricketer explained that part of his connect with his wife comes from the fact that they both had similar childhoods. “She is also from a similar background as me. We come from middle class families, made it in our respective careers, worked hard, got to a certain stage. In hindsight, when we look into our lives, they were going at the same pace but in totally different worlds." It was back in 2008 that Virat Kohli joined the Indian cricket team, and incidentally, Sharma was preparing for her debut Bollywood film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, opposite Shah Rukh Khan, at the same time. “The timeline of my debut is 2008, the timeline of her starting her first film, shooting for it, was August 2008. We met in 2013 and our lives have been so similar in totally different worlds," Kohli said, "And we got along so well. We were talking about real things, we were talking about things that a lot of people don’t connect with. Only if you have seen that life will you understand what we are talking about. So the connect was there immediately.”
Anushka Sharma on Virat Kohli's best characteristics
While the cricketer is all about energy and aggression on the field, it seems that he's very different when he's not working. "He’s one of the calmest persons I’ve met. Off the field, he’s so relaxed. You can ask my friends, my team," Anushka Sharma said in an interview. "He’s like that on field only because he’s so passionate. He’s not aggressive in real life. That’s only his demeanour on the field. He’s the most shaant person I know. I look at him and I’m like, 'Wow! You’re so chill.'"

"This one is my blessing. My friend, My confidante, My one true love. I hope you find the light guiding your path always and may you choose to do the right thing every time. Your compassion is what makes you a good leader and I pray that you always have that in abundance. Happy Birthday my love ❤️????✨," Anushka Sharma captioned the above photo on her Instagram page.
