He a cricketer and she an actress: how can anyone not fall in love with this combination?! We all love Bollywood as much as we love cricket, but if there is something more that we love, it had to be this incredible combination of the two– Virushka! This couple first met on the set of an ad shoot way back in 2013, and from there, there was no looking back! Like everyone else, they’ve had their fair share of ups and downs. Being in the limelight and the centre of attention comes with its pros and cons. From what started off at an ad shoot, to dating, heartbreaks, and finally to marriage and building a beautiful relationship, this couple has seen it all. And all we can say is – hats off!
Coming from similar backgrounds, they had a certain connect and hit it off right from day one. The two would not miss a single opportunity to spend quality time together. Anushka would often fly down to support Virat and the Indian cricket team during their tournaments, and Virat would love visiting Anushka at her shoot locations. The duo made their first ever public appearance in October 2014, when they went to see an Indian Super League game. Virushka fans could not keep their calm when Virat blew a kiss to Anushka who was sitting in the stands during one of the matches in November 2014.
However, in February 2016, the two decided to part ways, leaving their fans heartbroken. There were many factors that caused their split, and the media was definitely a major factor. The constant pressure of being in the limelight did not go too well with this couple, and many misunderstandings came their way. But destiny has its own plans and, in this case, the break up was worth it! The couple sorted out their differences, and in December 2016, they got back together stronger than ever!
This power couple got hitched in December 2017 at a very private wedding ceremony in Italy. While Virat looked dapper in the traditional sherwani, Anushka looked no less than a dream as she walked into her wedding mandap. She was stunning in a gorgeous lehenga, and her bridal entry song is still a hit among many! - Pic: PTI
