Anushka Sharma can’t stop smiling as hubby Virat Kohli receives Khel Ratna


Clad in a beautiful saree, Anushka Sharma cheers for her cricketer husband Virat Kohli as he receives the Khel Ratna award from our honourable President of India, Ram Nath Kovind. She attended the event with Virat’s mother Saroj Kohli and his brother Vikas Kohli.

A day after the event, Virat shares a heartfelt note in which he calls Anushka his true inspiration.

“The person that inspires me to push forward despite all obstacles. The person that guides me to do the right thing in life against all odds. The person that has changed me inside out and made me realise the power of true love. My strength. My soulmate ?,” he wrote along with a photo of the Pari actor.

Notably, after Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat is the third Indian cricketer to be honoured with the greatest sports award.

Talking about their relationship, Anushka said in an interview, “I think we are both not so attached to what we do. The other day someone asked me a question you know ‘power couple and two powerful people from your own industry. You know when you are together, how do you manage this and all’. And I thought to myself and I told them also, we don’t see ourselves like that. We start to see ourselves that way then there is something really wrong in the nature of our relationship. If someone really wants to have an insight into our lives, we are very simple people, wanting to do normal, very simple things.”

The actress also said that the two of them look at fame from the same viewpoint. She said, “We are both very awkward with the fame that we have we don’t embrace stardom and fame and that’s why, I think, we connect so much. We run away, sometimes, from these things. Sometimes, we find a need to be in our own cocoon. And that’s the reason why we are so self-sufficient. And when I see self, I mean both of us because we don’t see each other as two different people. Him and me are male and female versions of each other.”

She added, “Yes, of course, the outer expression might be different, the way people look at us might be different but inside the values are exactly the same. And we both are very spiritual people. First and foremost, we lead spiritual lives and then it is what we do our professions are just what we do. So that’s where we find our strength from. This is our duty, we perform our duty and then we come back.”

Speaking about Virat being the greatest batsman alive, Anushka said, “I am married to the greatest man in the world” with a huge smile on her face.
