New Delhi: Virat Kohli has been open about his love for Anushka Sharma on social media but Anushka till now had kept her feelings to herself. All of that changed recently when Anushka, apparently using the girlfriend privileges, told the Indian cricket team captain that he could not break his beard.
The dutiful boyfriend that Virat is, he immediately replied to the actor and said okay with a smiley and a heart emoticon. Anushka, you lucky lucky girl!
It appears the adorable couple is slowly doing things in open, and their fans are loving every bit of affection they are displaying publicly. Just a few days back, Anushka visited an injured Virat in Bangalore. While the pics and videos from their rendezvous went viral, the two could not care less. Soon after, Virat changed his Instagram profile pic to one with Anushka.
We know Virat is head over heels with his lady love. He shared special posts for Anushka on both Valentine’s Day and Women’s Day. He even stood up for the actor when it was reported that Virat has co-produced her film, Phillauri. Now, in his recent Instagram post, Virat has shared a picture with a caption, “Sorry boys @hardikpandya_official @royalnavghan @rohitsharma45 but I am not ready to break the beard yet. Great job on the makeovers though. Kudos.” The boys were happily talking about beards when Anushka jumped into the conversation and left a cute comment, which stole the entire chat. The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actor wrote, “You cannot,” pointing that Virat needs to maintain his famous beard and not even think about going for a makeover.
The Break The Beard hashtag was started by Ravindra Jadeja who shaved off his beard and then took to Instagram,
“Change the game on the field. Change the look in the dressing room. #BreakTheBeard #rajputboy #newlook #timeforchange #vivoipl #glvsrcb.” Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya also followed his lead and shaved off their beard for just a moustache and stubble. It seems Anushka is not seeing eye-to-eye with this cricketing trend though.
Anushka and Virat keep stealing free time from their busy schedules to spend time with each other. The two go on late night dinner dates, weekend getaways and even visit each other’s families, away from the glare of the paparazzi. While the entire industry rang in the New Year amid loud parties and a lot of fiesta, Anushka flew with her rumoured boyfriend to the mountains of Uttarakhand to kick off 2017 quietly. Here is one couple which doesn’t prefer to shout about their romance from the rooftop. They would rather whisper it into each other’s ears. Truly old school romance!
