Mumbai:Getting married in twenties is supposedly young for an actress, but I made this decision because I was in love with Virat Kohli, says Anushka Sharma.
She revealed that she chose to get married in the midst of a busy, successful career because of her love for Kohli. “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. I got married at 29, supposedly young for an actress. But I did it because I was in love. (Smiles) And I am in love. Marriage was a natural progression,” she said. Anushka added that while a man never worries about his career when getting married, why should a woman?
Anusha said that “Marriage was a natural progression. I’ve always stood for women being treated equally. So, I wouldn’t want to experience the most beautiful moment of my life with fear in mind. If a man doesn’t think twice before getting married and continues to work, then why should a woman think about it? I’m happy that more actresses have got married. People in love are going out there and expressing it. It’s so beautiful to see happy couples together.”
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli exchanged garlands at Borgo Finocchieto in Italy’s Tuscany in 2017.
On the work front, Anushka is yet to sign her next project.
