Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are one of the top celebrity couples in India. Ever since they have been dating, and even after their marriage in late 2017, Virushka as they are adorably called, have been paparazzi favourites because of their amazing chemistry and love. Virat Kohli was recently part of a talk show Depth With Graham Bensinger, where he revealed how he met Anushka Sharma and what their first conversation was about.

In a video interview with Graham Bensinger, Kohli said that the first time the couple met was on the sets of a shampoo commercial in India. Kohli, like his nature, even cracked a joke or two to break the awkwardness between the both of them.

"We met at commercial shoot for a shampoo. I remember my manager Bunty told me that you have a brand coming up. I was excited to be a part of it. But when I asked 'who is it with?', he told me it's with Anushka Sharma. I was like 'are you joking?' He told me, I am serious.

I thought how am I going to be in the same frame as that of a professional actor? 'I am going to look like a fool. I have no idea how to do this.' My manager consoled me saying, 'It is a nice script. It will be a fun'," Kohli said on the talk show.

Once he met her on the sets of the commercial,  "The first time I met her (Anushka Sharma), I cracked a joke immediately with her. I was nervous and that is why I cracked the joke, because I didn't know what to do. Before meeting her, I was standing on set all jittery and nervous. I thought I was being funny. I just said something which wasn't probably the right thing to say. She is tall as well and she was told that I am not 6 feet or plus and 'you must not wear massive heels or anything'. She walked in and was looking taller than me. I said, 'Didn't you get a higher pair of heels than these?' She was like, 'Excuse me?', I said, 'I am just joking!' My joke actually became a weird moment for myself. I behaved like a fool, to be honest," he added.

The couple dated for four years to finally get married at Borgo Finocchieto in Italy's Tuscany in 2017. Their wedding was a lavish affair as millions of Indians tuned in to watch updates from social media.

Virat Kohli was recently touring West Indies and will be back in India for a series with South Africa. Anushka Sharma, on the other hand, was last seen in last year's Zero and is yet to sign her next project in Bollywood.
