Anushka Sharma usually doesn't talk about her private life. But recently, the actress spoke about her beau, Virat Kohli and his public display of affection on field, to an exclusive interview to a leading daily.
“I just felt embarrassed. My brother still makes fun of me. I was embarrassed. It’s a stadium and people were turning around and looking at me. I felt shy,” she says, referring to the bastmen’s flying ‘bat kisses’ to Anushka in the stands.
The actress who was trolled on social media, when the Indian team lost at the World Cup semi-final said that, being under the media scanner 24/7, at times does take a toll on her relationship with Kohli. Anushka says, "We’re both cut off from everything. When it takes away from your work, then it’s a problem. It doesn’t take a toll on your relationship. Virat and I are quite strong. But it definitely affects your work. He wants to focus on his work.The baggage of his relationship in the media is something else. If he scores well, it’s attributed to me, if he doesn’t play well, it’s because of me. I’m blamed for everything. I don’t understand."
However, Anushka proudly says that the media’s speculation about her and Kohli’s relationship doesn’t harm their relationship.

“All this doesn’t harm our relationship. I wouldn’t be with someone if we were not on the same wavelength. During the England tour, it did take a toll, not on our relationship, but on Virat. What happened was unfair. We weren’t prepared for it.”
I’ll tell you, why I don’t talk. When you talk about your relationship in public, you start making it frivolous.” The actress further feels that, if she is ‘open’ about her relationship with Kohli, it will lose its purity.
“If you talk about your relationship to me, it’s just me you are talking to. How would you like it if I announce it on Facebook? And I’m not Anushka Sharma, I’m your friend. It will piss you off, right?” she says.
She further adds that people don’t take heroines seriously.
“They assume we should be answering questions about our personal lives because that’s the only exciting thing about us. It’s not. That’s why I don’t choose to talk about it,” she says.
Anushka firmly says,“You think I have a problem about being open? Am I saying that I’m not dating Virat? I’m dating Virat."
