Before Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's wedding, do you know about her first crush?

Unfortunately, Anushka Sharma's first crush is no more.

Anushka Sharma is all set to tie the knot with the man of her dreams, Virat Kohli, in just a few hours from now, if reports are to be believed.

While her spokesperson denied that a wedding was on the cards, that Anushka's family priest flew to Italy, the rumoured destination, with her family seemed to suggest otherwise.

Sources told India Today that Virat and Anushka will get hitched this week, in a historic property called Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany, South Italy.

Before Anushka and Virat take the plunge, here's revisiting an old interview of the actress where she spoke about her first crush.

Talking to Sify.com, Anushka had revealed that her first crush was a Major in the Indian Army. "My real-life hero is Major Gopi Rathore, who sadly is a martyr now. He was one of my father's officers from the 16 Garhwal Rifles. He died fighting militants in Jammu and Kashmir. The truth is, he was my first crush," she said.

Major Gopi Singh Rathore was an officer of the 1992 batch of the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun, and a winner of the 'Sword of Honour'. He was awarded the Shaurya Chakra posthumously, after he laid down his life while fighting insurgents in Kashmir on November 10, 2005.

"He was someone I really looked up to, not only because of his great attributes as an officer, but also because of who he was as a person... Major Gopi Rathore was tall and good-looking. He was everything a woman would want in a man," Anushka had said.
