Anushka Sharma is married to Virat Kohli, who has been an extraordinary cricketer and the captain of the Indian national team since 2017.
Anushka’s first boyfriend is recalled by many as Zoheb Yusuf, who was one of the ramp models whom Anushka met in Bangalore. They apparently had a serious relationship for more than 2 years after which they split. Firstly, it was a long-distance relationship that they were in, and secondly, the stardom of Anushka was rising. These are some of the factors due to which Anushka’s first relationship saw its end.
Ranveer Singh was the actor who was cast opposite Anushka Sharma in Band Baaja Baaraat and he was allegedly the first boyfriend of Anushka from the industry. However, it again saw an end soon after both of them became busy with their movie careers.
Anushka Sharma next saw Ranbir Kapoor, and the two were gossiping about hanging out together. After meeting up at Karan Johar’s party, they went together a couple of times to dinner but they also enjoyed the company of their friends on most of these occasions. Therefore, it is often refuted as gossip.
Shahid Kapoor was another person with whom Anushka Sharma was also related after the two were caught smooching each other at Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’s success party of Imran Khan. Next, was the Indian cricketer, Suresh Raina, with whom Anushka was linked once when the cricketer also remarked that he was extremely “fond” of the actress. However, these relationships were barely considered serious and certainly not half as serious as the last one with another cricketer, Virat Kohli.
Anushka Sharma met Virat on the occasion of a shampoo commercial when they two apparently liked each other and started dating. This was the beginning of Anushka’s final relationship which ended successfully in marriage on 11 December 2017 and is happily continuing still. The couple was blessed with a baby girl on 11 January 2021, his name is Vamika Kohli.
