As we all know, Anushka Sharma’s father was in the Army and the actress moved around a lot during her childhood. While Colonel Ajay Kumar Sharma was posted in Assam, Anushka and Sakshi Dhoni (then Rawat) attended the same school together. A popular fan account on Twitter posted pictures of the two at different stages of their lives.
Confirming the news, Anushka had even spoken about her reunion with Sakshi years after graduating. “Sakshi and I lived together in a very small town in Assam. When she told me where she lived, I said wow, I have lived here too! She said I went to this school, I said I went to this school too. And then I found a picture in which Sakshi is dressed as a fairy and I’m dressed in a ghaghara like my favourite idol Madhuri. Sakshi is extremely funny.” Do not miss: Anushka Sharma’s brand named after BF Virat Kohli’s nickname for the actress
It indeed is a small world, if you are Anushka and Sakshi! The leggy lass of Bollywood is in a steady relationship with Virat Kohli while Sakshi is happily married to MS Dhoni and is mother to an adorable daughter Ziva.
On the sidelines of a launch event in 2013, Anushka talked about reuniting with Sakshi several years after they left school. “Sakshi and I lived together in a very small town in Assam. When she told me where she lived, I said wow, I have lived here too! She said I went to this school, I said I went to this school too,” she said.
“And then I found a picture in which Sakshi is dressed as a fairy and I’m dressed in a ghaghara like my favourite idol Madhuri. Sakshi is extremely funny,” Anushka added.
On the work front, Anushka was last seen as a wheelchair-bound scientist in Aanand L Rai’s Zero. The film, which also featured Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in key roles, tanked at the box office.
