Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have been in the news for being in a relationship on and off and when media tried to probe Anushka about it, this time, she made sure she’d take ’em down.
In a recent interview to channel DNA, Anushka said, “I don’t want to talk about my personal life. I feel the Indian media doesn’t have the maturity to deal with it. They can’t understand when we are open about our relationships. I was open about my relationship, I spoke about it and I thought that would be respected, but it’s not. People don’t know what to do with it.”
The Bollywood actress went on to say, “Here, everything is to be gossiped about – every little thing is being focussed on and analysed? The focus is completely taken away from my work. While I was in this relationship, I was doing the best work of my life. I was getting appreciation for the films I was doing then, but suddenly, it’s only about my relationship!”
When she was asked about plans for her marriage, Sharma said, “I want to get married ,of course. I would like to have a family. Even though I am an actor, I am a very simple and normal person and I have always maintained a simple life. I feel marriage will happen when it has to. I will get married when I am mentally ready for it. A marriage is not a joke. It’s not like ‘Oh shaadi hai toh karle!’ You have to be mentally ready to spend your life with another person. It’s not just about you, but about the other person also and then at that point you need to be ready to have a dual interest. Mentally, when I reach that stage, I will get married.”
Despite being applauded for her work, Anushka feels people are more obsessed with her relationship with Virat Kohli and marriage than anything else. Sharma said, “What the hell is this obsession about marriage? Why are you trying to make it seem like I am packing my bags and going away after I get married? This whole thing about marriage is like she doesn’t want to work after she gets married. Why?”
Rumours of Anushka and Virat tying the knot have been in the grapevine for more than a year now. In fact, right when Anushka began dating the Indian star batsman, people had begun speculating about their marriage.
