Actor Anushka Sharma has often been referred to about her influence on husband and cricketer Virat Kohli, be it before or after their wedding. The actor has claimed that unlike his on-field demeanour, Virat is the calmest person she know.

Talking to Filmfare about Virat’s on-field image, Anushka said, “He’s one of the calmest persons I’ve met. Off the field, he’s so relaxed. You can ask my friends, my team. He’s like that on field only because he’s so passionate. He’s not aggressive in real life. That’s only his demeanour on the field. He’s the most shaant person I know. I look at him and I’m like, ‘Wow! You’re so chill.’”

Talking about how they sometimes see off and pick each other at the airport, Anushka said, ”Those are the moments you steal when you lead lives that are so demanding. For that, your priorities have to be set. I’m never going to be like, ‘Oh please spend more time with me at the cost of your work’. No, please do your work. He’s the same with me. When you respect each other’s work and your own, there’s respect in the marriage.”
