Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s togetherness was special due to multiple reasons. First off, the Bollywood and Cricket combo is a super-hit. The two individually are reputed players in their respective fields. All in all, it was like the best of both worlds coming together. From pastel outfits to secret weddings at lavish locations, Virushka started a trend of their own.
From the first ad commercial to PDA at stadiums and the intimate ceremony – check out the complete relationship timeline of Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma.
2013 – ‘Nothing To Hide’
Virat & Anushka first met on the sets of an ad commercial. The duo was shooting for a shampoo brand and their sizzling chemistry was quite evident then itself. As the tagline, they had ‘nothing to hide’ until what was coming ahead in future!
2014 – Caught In Action!
Love was in the air, quite literally. It began with a viral picture of Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma holding hands in New Zealand. Soon after, rumours were rife that the cricketer even kept visiting sets of Anushka’s films – Bombay Velvet & PK. The actress began visiting stadiums to cheer for her lover.
However, the spark was ignited when Virat blew a kiss to Anushka during the match against Sri Lanka. It was his way of expressing love as he scored a half-century. The beauty kept blushing as she was present in the stands.
2015 – It’s OFFICIAL!
Anushka Sharma confessed to dating Kohli in March. The actress also spoke about the reason why she doesn’t talk about it openly. “The reason I don’t talk about it is because it takes away from my work. People don’t take people’s work seriously,” she said in a conversation with Filmfare.
Virat too did not hold back from praising his ladylove. When NH10 released, he went all gaga over his GF’s production. Kohli tweeted, “Just watched #NH10 and i am blown away. What a brilliant film and specially an outstanding performance by my love @AnushkaSharma. SO PROUD:)”
However, the rough patch hit when the viewers began blaming Anushka Sharma for Virat Kohli’s poor performance during the first test match against South Africa. This continued for long until reputed celebrities came into the scenario and supported the actress.
2016 – Too Much Or Too Less?
Virat finally broke his silence over the entire row. He took to his Twitter and slammed people who were shaming Anushka. “Shame on people for trolling @AnushkaSharma non-stop. Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity,” wrote the Indian cricket captain.

However, split rumours slowly started doing the rounds. Reason? The couple unfollowing each other on social media platforms. While nothing was official, reports stated that marriage was the subject of disagreement between both.
The couple was back again after a short split, and so were the wedding shenanigans. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli attended Yuvraj Singh & Hazel Keech’s wedding later that year. Soon after, rumours around their engagement hit the gossip mill too.
However, the cricket expert set the records straight. He tweeted, “we aren’t getting engaged & if we were going to, we wouldn’t hide it. Simple…” Anushka too retweeted the post.
