A few weeks back, when ‘Guess The Gibberish’ was trending on social media, Anushka Sharma had sportingly taken the challenge. In the challenge, a popular term, saying or phrase appears in the form of haphazard spelling needs to be decoded and say before the time runs out by the participant. While Anushka had guessed some on time, some which she couldn't, were completed by her hubby, Virat Kohli. Captioning the ones where Virat had aced the challenge and she had failed, Anushka had written, “While I was gloating, ladka managed to guess while lifting weights”, “Ladke ko sab pata hai” atop them. Check out the videos:
Trying out a new filter on Instagram, Anushka Sharma posted a video of the same and its BTS too. Anushka tried out 'Complete Your Face' filter, where nose, eyes, and mouth start floating on the screen and one has to blink their eyes to lock the moving part in the correct place. Anushka wasn't quite successful in the game after several attempts and the filter concluded by displaying, "You are so dumb, play again" on the screen. To which, Anushka responded by writing, "No, You are a Dumb Game, Bada Aaya." Later, Anushka also posted a BTS video of her game, and looks like her hubby, Virat Kohli had shot her candid attempts in the game. Here are the screenshots of the same:

Speaking to fellow teammate, Mayank Agarwal on his chat show, Open Nets with Mayank uploaded on BCCI Twitter handle, Virat Kohli revealed his 'standout quarantine story'. When Virat was asked, “What is your favourite quarantine story?" He retorted, “I baked a cake for the first time in my life on Anushka’s birthday. That would be a standout quarantine story for me because I had never baked earlier. It turned out to be good in the very first attempt and she told me that she loved the cake, which is very very special."

During an Insta-live with former England captain, Kevin Pietersen in April 2020, Virat Kohli had spoken about how was it spending time at home with wife, Anushka Sharma. He had said, "We are at home. It’s been difficult. It’s been intense. All over the world, We do have space. We went away to a farm before everything got intense. It is great we have a space to walk out. We have to be grateful. People are going through so much these days. It’s tough to watch. It is the longest we have spent together at one place since we have been married. We have never been at one place for so long at same time. It’s bizarre. It’s not a good thing to single out this as an opportunity to spend time. But it is what it is. We have to be positive and we are being cautious. These are strange times." (Also Read: Esha Deol Went Down The Memory Lane To Celebrate Baby Sister, Ahana Deol's 35th Birthday)
