Love is a very subjective topic. Everyone has a different opinion about one. We all must have felt it, seen it, expressed it but yet how different it was for each one. We may go through several relationships where we may have unique experience and some may even last forever.

While we are in relationship we may experience several stages or phases as one may call it. Everyone goes through it and it is one of the most beautiful time of life. Here we are all excited about Anushka and Virat’s wedding which may or may not happen in this month as the rumour has it, but yet, we feel they are just perfect for each other. While we try to know what are these phases, let us look at the ideal relationship we have in here as live example.

Presenting, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. While she is the queen of Bollywood and Beauty, he is the master blaster and Captain of Indian cricket team and world class sportsman! Don’t they make an adorable couple <3 The cupid’s been kind! 😛


Phase 1. Milna Toh Zaroori Hai – The Acquaintance

Every relationship has to start off from somewhere. Usually the cupid strikes at first sight. While some of you may come to know that it’s happening, some of you may not realise until you have crossed multiple phases.

Anushka and Virat met in 2013 while shoot for a shampoo commercial. If you see the ad you will agree that yes, this was meant to be <3



Phase 2: Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge, Kyunki, Love is Friendship. Pyaar Dosti Hai!

Once you have met the other half the 1st obvious way to approach is to become good friends. Kyuki, agar woh meri achi dost nahi ban sakti, toh may usse kabhi pyaar nahi kar sakta. Because love is friendship.

Anushka and Virat became good friends after the shoot and started hanging out together. Just like they say, no smoke without the fire, this became the talk of the town. However both always said that they were “good” friends. They were first spotted together in October 2013 for ISL match.


Phase 3: Affair – Pyaar Zindagi Hai

This is where it all starts. Just when you realize that there is something special brewing up here. Everything seems so lovely and beautiful. You have been listening to songs but it is now that you understand the lyrics and your dil goes hmmmhmmmm…

Virat and Anushka started spending their major time together. Ofcourse it is to understand and know each other better. Plus it is always fun to be with the person you love spending time with. The things started taking shape when Virat flew back from South Africa tour in January 2014 and left the team and went directly to Anushka’s place. He was spotted in Anushka’s car at the airport.

Phase 4: Sukh Dukh Ke Hum Saathi

No matter how much time you spend with your loved one, it always seems less. You keep craving for their company more and more. You become ready to fight for the person you love and stand for him/her.

These lovebirds did not accept publicly that they were in relationship but they couldn’t help staying away from each other. They were seen strolling together in New Zealand and sitting and chilling in park. Giving each other surprises and being there for each other during the busy schedules just shows how much they were in love.


Phase 5: Pyaar Ka Ikraar

While everyone around you knows and feels love in the air, it is very important to accept it and let people know. The most special moment indeed. It gives a sense of happiness and achievement when you go public with your relationship. People will shower you with blessings and guidance of do’s and don’ts. While some may envy your love, there will be some who will be deeply happy.

Though Anushka and Virat many public appearances, their acceptance of relationship came as quite a stunner. In November 2014, during the match against Sri Lanka, after achieving a milestone Virat blew a kiss at Anushka. Imagine in a stadium with 1000s of people and so much energy around accepting your love like this. Its definitely a dream come true for any girl!

They were then seen together for Wimbledon match in 2015 and then for the Vogue Beauty Awards. This was indeed a major development considering the coverage and media presence. They also gave official statement about their relationship at the event.

He said, “We are not hiding anything. We are being two normal young people in a relationship.”



She said, “He’s my very, very good looking arm candy.”

Phase 6: Nok Jhok

Jahan pyaar wahan takrar! Aao milke hum tod de yeh deewar 😛 It’s all part of the game. Love is like fire. If you get too close you will burn, if you get too far you will freeze. Its best to maintain the safe distance. By that we mean that there will be up’s and down. As you get to know the other person better there might be arguments, clashes of thought etc. But it’s all just a phase which will pass.

Obviously things started stirring rough in this tinseltown. Being a public figure and in relationship is not easy. They became part of many controversies where they retaliated against the journalists who wanted more masala on their relationships while they preferred keeping it private. They also fought with each other on certain occasions. According to media reports, Anushka’s sexy shoot for Men’s Magazine didn’t go well with Virat and hence the rift.

There were then talks about the temporary break in relationship so that both could focus on their careers. However they were spotted together for success bash of Sultan. There were again rumours of their break up only this time more serious. According to reports, Virat insisted on settling down and Anushka wanted to focus on her career and was not ready.

They then confirmed their break up by unfollowing each other on Instagram. This proves they are normal people just like us!


Phase 7: Dooriyan Bhi Hai Zaroori – Break ke Baad

Some of you may not survive the onslaught of phase 6. It can be painful and you may lose out but it is very important to remember that this happens to everybody. Its best to take some time off and get some fresh air which will help you think clearly and not take decision in haste. Spending time with your friends and family definitely helps in getting out of the zone and then thinking what is right and what is wrong.



While in the Virushka town things got pretty silent for a while, its best they got on a break. While Virat was seen ignoring questions about the relationship he did try to move on and focus more on his career. Anushka Sharma used to receive lot of backlash for non performance of Virat Kohli on the field. After their breakup his performance improved and people started talking negatively about Anushka and her influence. Outraged by this Virat posted this on social media.

The post said,


Shame on those people who have been having a go at Anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what i do with my sport. If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity. This was long time coming. Shame on these people that hide and take a dig. And i don’t need any respect for this post. Have some compassion and respect her. Think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public. #nocompassion #nocommonsense



Even after not being in a relationship he ensured he protected her and stood up for the right.


Phase 8: Forgive and Forget

Once your anger has been cooled and your mind is clear it’s easier to decide. If you really love someone truly and feel the relationship is worth it then it’s best to forgive and forget and start afresh. There is no harm in accepting a mistake or saying sorry. It just makes you a better person and you gain more respect in the eyes of the other half.

The cooling time off did help Virushka. They reconciled and were seen together in December 2016 at Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech’s wedding. This time they came back stronger and proved that they loved each other truly.


Phase 9: I Got your Back Baby, Always.

It is necessary to respect each other and see things from other person’s perspective to ensure the relationship survives in the long run. Appreciation of effort, how small it may be, can make a lot of difference to someone’s day and mood. Plus making sure you are there and have his/her back in all things good as well as bad!

Virat never left a stone unturned to praise and appreciate his lady love. On Valentine’s Day 2017, he posted their picture on Instagram stating:


Everyday is a valentine day if you want it to be. You make everyday seem like one for me. @anushkasharma

We sure know now why even after breaking up they have got together. They are so much in love. Not just for Valentine’s, even on Women’s Day Virat posted a beautiful message again.

The post said..


Happy women’s day to every woman out there, but specially to the two strongest women in my life. My mom for looking after the family in toughest times in life and @anushkasharma for fighting against the odds regularly and standing up for righteousness and changing the norms #happywomenday


This is sooo adorable <3


Phase 10: Hum Saath Saath Hai

Now that you have surpassed it all, there is only thing that remains. That is, forever! Being with the person you love and who loves you back is the best thing in life. Cherishing and living each moment to the fullest is what matters. Ensure you fulfill all the promises and be there for each other always 🙂 <3
