Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli have been going steady for quite some time and their relationship is one of the most talked about in media. However, a little known fact was unearthed recently about Anushka's childhood connection to cricket. One of the fan pages on Twitter posted a childhood picture of Anushka Sharma with cricketer M S Dhoni's wife, Sakshi Dhoni. Yes!

Anushka Sharma in one of her interviews to an online portal spoke about how Sakshi Dhoni was her childhood friend and they both studied in the same school at some point in their lives. Owing to Anushka's army upbringing, she changed schools and cities, and when she was living in Assam, she attended the same school as Sakshi. In the picture we see Sakshi dressed as a fairy and Anushka in a ghaghra-choli like Madhuri Dixit, who she says was her icon during her early childhood years. There is also a picture of Sakshi and Anushka and Anushka's brother, during their college days. It is surely funny how life turns out as both Sakshi and Anushka ended up in serious relationships with two leading Indian cricketers. While Sakshi is the mother of a daughter, Anushka and Virat are said to be contemplating marriage in the coming years as well.
