What started off with a dandruff-free shampoo ad, ended with an eternity of togetherness. Ever since Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma became ‘Virushka’, we have lost the count of how many goals this super-adorable couple has set for us. When on December 11, 2017, Virat and Anushka shared the first-ever most-awaited photo from their intimate Italy wedding, it made our heart skip a beat for a moment. In the dreamy valleys of Tuscany, Italy, Virat and Anushka ‘promised each other to be bound in love forever’.

To give you a recap, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma spent their first anniversary and New Years 2019 in New Zealand and shared some glimpses of their vacation on social media. We got our hands on a throwback video from their vacation, wherein they can be seen sitting on a speed boat and Virat enjoys as his ‘one and only’ Anushka rides the boat. The proud husband, Virat beams with joy when Anushka tried her hand in riding it and successfully manages to take a turn. Towards the end of the video, Anushka in full excitement pulls Virat's cheeks and the sight is too cute to miss.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma managed to keep their wedding an intimate one with only 42 guests in presence. In an interview with Vogue, Anushka revealed to what extent they had to go to keep their wedding a secret, which included keeping fake names for preparations. Revealing the details, Anushka shared, “We even used fake names while talking to the caterer; I think Virat’s was Rahul.” She further added, “We wanted to have a home-style wedding. There were only 42 people there, with all our friends and family present. I wanted it to be about Virat and me marrying each other, and not this big celebrity wedding. The energy at our wedding was blessed.” This is how and why Anushka and Virat’s wedding is a perfect example of a ‘secret wedding’.
Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian cricket team, and Anushka Sharma, the talented and unconventional Bollywood actress, have time and again proved that they respect each other’s work and professional achievements. While Anushka always makes sure to be there for her husband during his crucial matches and has even flown down to different countries to be a part of his big days, Virat, on the other hand, leaves no stone unturned to compliment his wife for her acting prowess and stand up for her against the world.

Anushka Sharma has mostly accompanied her husband, Virat Kohli on his cricket tours, but she is often trolled and blamed for his performance in some matches. So, this time, since Virat is captaining India for the first time in a 50-over World Cup tournament, Anushka decided to stay away from the limelight. Anushka won’t miss accompanying her husband during this important phase, and to be there to root for him and see him lift the World Cup, she has a better plan!
According to a DNA report, a source had shared, “Anushka has been the perfect partner supporting her husband at all his key milestones. Virat too has always gone out of his way for his beloved wife. Virat is captaining India for the first time in a 50-over World Cup tournament and Anushka wants to be there to root for him and see him lift the World Cup. But what the couple is planning to do there is truly commendable. It just shows how supportive they are to each other and how they are actually each other’s better halves.”
The source further added, “While Anushka will be travelling to England to be a perfect pillar of strength to Virat, she might not be going to the stadium with him. In fact, she wants to go separately to watch the matches and cheer the loudest for Virat. When the wives of the cricketers travel on tours, they usually travel on the same team bus. This time it seems Anushka, on match days, would be hiring her own car and bearing all costs to visit the stadium separately and there’s an extremely heartwarming reason behind this decision. They have discussed the huge media attention that is bound to be there for the World Cup and both want to keep all distractions at bay during the World Cup which Virat definitely wants to try and win for India. Both feel the lesser the distraction on match days, the more the mind will only focus on the match.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Has A Sassiest Reply To A Troll Who Slammed Saif For 'Allowing' Her To Wear A Bikini)
