When Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma tied the knot in an intimate ceremony last year, they made headlines and pictures from their beautiful wedding made rounds on social media. The rather private, and may we add, hush hush ceremony took place with close family and friends and Anushka made for the most beautiful bride. The actress, who was 29 years old at the time, married her beau and fans couldn’t have been happier. Apparently, 29 is a rather young age for an actress to get married; according to Anushka herself. In a recent interview with a leading Indian daily, Anushka opened up on why she felt the need to get married before crossing 30.
"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. And I am in love," she said.
The Sui Dhaaga actress went on to add 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 gotten married. People in love are going out there and expressing it. It's so beautiful to see happy couples together.”
Anushka Sharma was last see in Aanand L Rai's Zero last year, which didn’t really fare well at the box office. In her interview, she also touched on the film’s failure. “Treat success and failure as imposters because they're both not real. I read this at the Wimbledon when I was there for a game. They're truly transitory. While success does bring a sense of relief, you learn and grow the most with failure. You can tell a lot about a person with the way they behave after achieving success. Similarly, you can tell a lot about a person's strength from how they behave after failure. Like how quickly they get back on their feet, whether failure turns them humane and humble or they become unpleasant."
