December 12. That's when Anushka Sharma will tie the knot with her longtime boyfriend, Indian skipper Virat Kohli in Italy, if reports are anything to go by.
The reason we are stressing upon the date of the wedding is because the actress shares a very special connection with it.
Well, it was on this day nine years ago that Anushka stepped into the world of films with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi that starred Shah Rukh Khan opposite her. December 12, 2008.
Yes, that's when the Aditya Chopra film had hit the screens before Anushka haule haule seeped into our hearts to rule them forever.
Interestingly, one of the initial scenes of the film is a marriage scene between the lead couple.
Anushka's character of Taani helplessly marries Surinder Sahni (Shah Rukh Khan), a much older and old-fashioned man from Amritsar. She does that for the sake of her father, who is on deathbed and fears that Taani will be left alone in the world.
Reality, however, is far cry. Anushka has been dating India's most loved cricketer Virat Kohli for the last four years and has been much vocal about her love affair with him.
The two had met on the sets of a shampoo commercial and felt an instant spark between each other. And in no time, they had started dating each other.
