A Pakistani dude chilled with Anushka and Virat and I’m honestly envious.
It’s not every day that you get to chill with a power-duo that can easily be deemed to be one of the most influential couples out there. But for 22-year-old Shayaan, a die-hard cricket fan, it’s no big deal.
Shayaan, who works in Manchester City and is originally from Islamabad, happened to have lunch with Anushka and Virat like it’s no big deal after bumping into them on his lunch break, and I have to admit, I’m low-key jealous.
Shayaan shared pictures of the same on Instagram…
…with BOTH of them.
It’s also worth noting that homeboy has chilled with Shahid Afridi earlier as well.
Shayaan also took to Twitter to share the same and his tweet blew up.
Just another day in the life of Shay? YES I JUST HAD LUNCH WITH VIRAT KOHLI AND ANUSHKA SHARMA 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 AND THEY’RE THE NICEST PEOPLE EVER!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/OQfhRjv5MI

MangoBaaz reached out to Shayaan to find out how this happened and here’s what he had to say:
“My friend and I went out in our lunch break. We ate at Subway and we still had 30 minutes left, so I thought, ‘Let’s go somewhere new.’ We came across Leaf, which is a cafe sort of a place, here in the city center of Manchester.”
“So I walked in first, we got a table and I noticed someone familiar, which turned out to be Anushka Sharma!”
Talking about what it felt like, he mentioned he’d met Kohli before.
“It was surreal. It’s the second time I’ve met Kohli and the first time was as big of a coincidence as this time and that was in 2014! Just spending a bit of time with them and seeing how well they treated me, with respect and all, it felt like a dream and I’m still in shock! I’ve been a massive fan of Kohli my whole life.”
Shayaan also shared how the adorable pictures were taken:
“Initially I had my phone out with the camera app open and we were just talking and then Anushka just took my phone because she knew I wanted to take a picture and told me to go and stand with Virat so that she could take a picture of us, which was surreal! I wanted one with Anushka too, so I was going to ask for a selfie but before I had the chance, she told me to give the phone to Virat and that he’ll take the picture of us. He took my phone and took the picture and yeah, I was basically in total shock after that.
“When they were about to leave, I told Virat how we met just 2 mins away from the cafe back in 2014 too and how he let me take a picture then too and he just got really happy and was surprised! He said thank you, we shook hands and he left.”
Honestly, this is SUCH a cute story and major props to Anushka and Virat for being humble and kind. As for Shayaan, I mean, this is definitely one for the books. Aisi luck chahiye bas. What do you guys think about this? Let us know in the comments!
