Did It Because I was in Love, Says Anushka Sharma on Why She Married Virat Kohli at 29

After dating for a long time, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli got married in a secret Tuscan wedding on December 11, 2017.

Anushka Sharma got married to Virat Kohli when she was 29, an age when most of the top actresses focus on their career. Opening up on why she chose to get married in the midst of a busy, successful career and at an age that’s considered young for actresses, the NH 10 actor told Filmfare in a recent interview, “I did it because I was in love. And I am in love. Marriage was a natural progression.”

“Our audience is way more evolved than our industry is. Audiences are just interested in seeing actors on screen. They don’t care about your personal lives, whether you’re married or whether you’re a mother. We need to get out of this headspace,” she added.

In the interview, Anushka also questioned why women should worry about their careers while getting married when men never do. And she has walked her talk. The 31-year-old dived head first into work after tying the knot with the India cricket captain in a dreamy Tuscan wedding in December 2017. 2018 was her career’s busiest year with four back-to-back releases—Pari, Sui Dhaaga, Sanju and Zero.

Notably, Anushka also owns a fashion apparel line Nush and a movie production house named Clean Slate Films that she runs with her brother Karnesh Sharma.
