Virat Kohli celebrated a victory against the Rajasthan Royals by blowing a kiss to his wife, Anushka Sharma, who was watching from the stands. Virat is the captain of the Indian Premier League team Royal Challengers Bangalore. The sweet gesture was captured on TV and quickly went viral on social media. Fans praised the moment as a vintage display of Kohli's affection, with some saying it felt like the good old days of cricket. The RCB team was dressed in green to support its 'Go Green' initiative for the environment.
The day before the match, Anushka and Virat went out for a family lunch with Anushka's parents at the Central Tiffin Room in Bangalore. The couple took photos with the staff. They also left a message in the guest book expressing their gratitude for the wonderful hospitality and delicious food.
Anushka, an actress, and producer, recently completed filming on Chakda Express, a biopic about cricketer Jhulan Goswami that is produced by her brother Karnesh Sharma and directed by Prosit Roy. The film is expected to premiere on Netflix later this year. Anushka's most recent appearance was a cameo in the song Ghodey Pe Sawaar for Anvita Dutt's film Qala starring Tripti Dimri.
