Moments when Anushka & Virat stood for each other
Praising Anushka Sharma for ‘massive sacrifices’ as a mother
In his recent RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) podcast, Virat Kohli spoke about the massive sacrifices Anushka made as a mother in the last two years. He said, “The way things have been in the past two years, we have had our child and, as a mother, the sacrifices that she made have been massive. Looking at her, I realised whatever problems I had were nothing. As far as expectations are concerned, as long as your family loves you for who you are, you don’t expect much because that is the basic requirement.” He added, “Her outlook toward life was different and it urged me to change for the better and become more accepting of things.”

A part of her caption read, “I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions. You led by example & gave winning on the field every ounce of your energy to the extent that after some losses I’ve sat next to you with tears in your eyes, while you wondered if there’s still something more you could have done. This is who you are & this is what you expected from everyone. You’ve been unconventional & straightforward. Pretence is your foe & this is what makes you great in my eyes & the eyes of your admirers.”
