Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma who got married to Indian Cricket team Captain Virat Kohli in December 2017, at the age of 29 has opened up about her reasons of getting married at an age considered young for actresses.
“I did it because I was in love. And I am in love. Marriage was a natural progression,” said the Band Baja Baraat famed actress in an interview recently.
After dating for quite a few years, Anushka and Kohli tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony held in Tuscan, Italy. Their fans and family rejoiced as the power couple began their happily ever after, however the decision came as a surprise to many, for Anushka had a thriving career at the time. Many assumed that Anushka had bid farewell to Bollywood as she got married at the peak of her career.
In the recent interview, Anushka shared that she did not feel marriage to be an obstacle towards her career. She added that despite industry’s assumptions, audiences are mature enough to let an actress have a personal life as long as she’s worthy of being on-screen.
“Our audience is way more evolved than our industry is. Audiences are just interested in seeing actors on screen. They don’t care about your personal lives, whether you’re married or whether you’re a mother. We need to get out of this headspace,” said the actress.
She went on to ask that women are supposed to worry about their careers or have to pick and choose between getting married and being successful. Men are not gauged on the same scale, said the actress. Anushka stated that despite getting married, her career has not come to a halt and she still can be and is a successful actress.
Proving true to her word of maintaining personal and professional life, Anushka gave four back-to-back movies in the year following her wedding (2018). Her films included Zero, Sui Dhaga, Sanju and Pari. Alongside Anushka continued to run her fashion apparel line Nush and her production house Clean Slate Films.
To top it off, the Bollywood beauty has also been making trips with husband Virat to his important matches. Recently Anushka was spotted in England as she cheered for Virat playing World Cup 2019.
