It won’t be an understatement if we call Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli the harbinger of modern day love for after having admitted to their relationship, the stars have been seen standing for and by each other in times of need.
So one could see Virat expressing disappointment over Anushka being targeted for Team India’s loss at the hands of Australia in the 2015 Cricket World Cup semi final. With a lot of public display of affection going on between the two (read: holding hands at the airport), their friends are also encouraged to show their affection and admiration towards the couple.
In one such instance, taking cue from the ‘devar-bhabhi’ jokes that prevailed during the World Cup, Yuvraj Singh commented on one of Anushka Sharma’s pictures on the image sharing platform Instagram.
As a part of promotional activity, when the actress posted a collage of pictures from her upcoming movie ‘Bombay Velvet’, Yuvraj Singh commented on the photo: “Oye Hoye Rosie bhabhi! Looking Awesome”.
Soonafter, this comment of Yuvraj’s hit news and when we checked again, the comment was removed.
Though Anushka ‘bhabhi’ hadn’t reacted till the comment was removed, we admit we did like the sweet and frank gesture by the ‘devar’ of the moment. Yuvraj had also asked Cricket fans, during the World Cup loss frenzy, to support Anushka and Virat and respect their privacy.
Remains to be seen, with the celebrity wedding season going on, whether this couple will be the next to tie the knot.
