At last, it is an open secret that Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had their own version of fairy tale wedding or should I say made their own version of ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’. Well before letting the crazy fans start a word war it’s safe to say it was both but with more than just a dash of Punjabi style thrown at it. Where it all started? Well, the rumors of their marriage began when their Manyavar advertisement came out, but it became a question of when-when we saw the pictures of Anushka’s family at the airport with a few bulky suitcases just too many and then when we heard the news of Virat excusing himself from the Sri Lankan series.
Well, for a country that obsesses over cricketers and Bollywood celebs this wedding practically came as an early Christmas present for us fans. But again, on second thoughts when was the last time a cricket captain married a Bollywood A-lister? I know you are thinking the same it has been decades. What was started by Tiger Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore has now become such a fascinating talk that even the hardened gossip haters like me could not resist myself from talking about it.
There is no doubt that the whole wedding was kept under wraps until the last minute and no media was allowed anywhere close to the wedding venue. But the couple did not keep their fans waiting for long and gave them a peek into their fairytale through loads of snippet of the wedding that took place in a villa between the Italian vineyard. Girls, I know what you are waiting to read about the outfit, isn’t it? Well, I will know keep you waiting Anushka Sharma looked elegant in that perfect Sabyasachi wedding outfit and even without any filmy hint in her dressing she looked outstanding and it was hard to take eyes off her. Now I know why Sabyasachi’s designs are the most copied ones as they make you look elegant. And if any of your weddings are around the corner you know which design is the hot-selling one.
The subtle pastels in Anushka’s lehenga were spot on along with her other outfits. And then pairing her wedding outfit with uncut diamond set did not go unnoticed. We all remember the Manyavar advertisements were Anushka and Virat give the wedding vows their personal touch and we all love it, but their real wedding pictures are so perfect that their fans like me feel it was a shot that was being replayed. Virat Kohli is the perfect Punjabi boy and that became clearer with their engagement pictures where again Anushka Sharma looked stunning in the Burgandy saree but something that caught my attention was the perfect blend of tradition with modern outlook.
Well, if you have not seen the video yet you might ask why? The hug that the couple shared after the exchange of rings was that modern-day couple touch to one of the most traditional ceremony. Moving on to the other ceremonies and customs there was nothing filmy about any of them. The Punjabi music playing in the background of the mehendi and haldi ceremony and the famous dodging of the Jaimala that we would see in any wedding makes me feel that they acknowledged the power of love and togetherness rather than the power of media.
This was no doubt the most awaited wedding of the year. The talks of will they or will they not have been doing rounds for very long now and they kept the lid on the box till the last minute and then finally announced their wedding with a carefully crafted statement on their social media platform that too at almost the same time. This is just a start of their second innings, but their first innings actually began when they first met on the sets of a shampoo commercial years ago. From then till now their relationship had seen all the ups and the downs but they still managed to come out of it stronger than before.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have always given couple goals as they would make anyone believe that true love still exists, and it is worth all the risks. This fairytale wedding is just another proof of their love.
