Bollywood Celeb, Anushka Sharma, who is married to Indian Skipper, Virat Kohli, was able to spend only 21 days with him, during the first six months of their marriage. Hectic work schedules of both were to blame for this. Anushka Sharma is grateful to the coronavirus lockdown that offered her more time with her husband cum Indian skipper Virat Kohli. This Celeb couple had a love marriage back in 2017 in a private ceremony.
In a recent media interaction, Anushka revealed that she is thankful that coronavirus lockdown had offered them precious time with each other, which they’d never have gotten otherwise.
“People assume when I’m visiting Virat or when he is visiting me that it’s a holiday, but it’s really not. One person is always working. In fact, during the first six months of our marriage, we spent 21 days together. Yes, I actually calculated. So when I visit him overseas, it’s to squeeze in that one meal together. It’s a precious time for us,”
Revealing details of how the lockdown helped them, Anushka said,
“It’s nice to know that there’s a silver lining in any situation in life. We would have never gotten to spend that much time every day with each other.”
“Whatever little inconveniences I have had to face in these few months is insignificant compared to what so many others in our country are facing—people are unable to go home, some are struggling with the loss of income and home, others are facing starvation even as many more deal with their loved ones being unfortunately struck by this disease. I’ve always been realistic, but now more than ever I am understanding the meaning of life.”

Every dark cloud had a silver lining. And this time, while it may seem like the worst time and in so many ways it actually is, has also forcefully made us all stop and deal with things we might have been running away from because either we were ‘busy’ or it was convenient to say we were ‘busy’. If this time is respected for what it is, it will enable more light to shine through. This time has also made us all realise what’s truly important. For me just having food, water and a roof over my head and the good health of my family seems MOST important. Everything else is a bonus that I bow my head in gratitude for. But, that which we call ‘basic’ is not so basic for everyone after looking at all the people who struggle for just those few things. My prayers with them and their families. May everyone be safe and secure.
This time has surely made me more reflective. This need to stay at home with your loved ones has been forced upon the entire world but there is a deep lesson for us all. There is a lesson to strive for work and life balance ( I’ve valued and strived for this dearly for many years now ), there is a lesson to devote more time in things that actually matter. Today, when I’m surrounded by all the blessings in my life, I just want to tell everyone how much compassion I feel for everyone who I see suffer. I want to help as many possible in the best of my abilities. I feel pride in our resilience to be better human beings. I can instinctively feel this in and around me. We will all have our individual and subjective lessons from this time and hopefully, such lessons will continuously stay with us all.
No one has any doubt regarding Anushka and Virat being one of the most loved couples not only in Bollywood but amongst the cricket fraternity as well.
