Off late, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has been in news not because of any film but her ‘relationship’ with one of India’s most popular cricketer. The pretty actress was seen cheering for her beau from the stands as Virat Kohli stormed his way to 6000 runs, the fastest batsman to reach the milestone in One-Day Internationals. He not only acknowledged the crowd but also blew a kiss to his lady love.

When asked if it’s time to acknowledge her relationship with Virat Kohli, in an interview with HT Caf , she said, “But when did I ever hide anything? I lead my life openly. I have never denied or hidden anything. It’s just that I don’t like to talk about my private life. I can’t shout from the rooftops. It’s out there for people to see. They can see, think, say and insinuate anything. But, I’ll not comment on it. I also feel that if I voice and vocalise my relationship, the sanctity of it goes away. I am not going to have conversations on my personal life. My relationships, be it with my parents, brother, friends or partner, are very pure. I don’t want that to go away.”

Continuing with the interview, when questioned if opening up will put a stop to people talking, she replied, “No, I don’t think that will happen, because if I come out and speak once, I will be expected to keep talking. I feel the minute we start talking about our private lives, all focus just shifts there. Then I’ll also have to answer questions like ‘Valentine’s Day pe kya karne wale hain? Apne birthday pe kya gift diya? I can’t do that. Like I said, it’s all in the open. Whether I go for a dinner or to watch a match, everybody can see it. But if people still need a verbal confirmation, I am not giving it. But really, how louder can I get?”

The good-looking cricketer and the leggy actress first met during an ad shoot for an anti-dandruff shampoo last year and since then have been making the headlines.
