When someone asked if he would share a glimpse of his daughter Vamika, Virat reiterated what he and Anushka Sharma had informed earlier: “Vamika is another name for goddess Durga. No we have, as a couple, decided not to expose our child to social media before she has an understanding of what social media is and make her own choice.”
