The wedding of Indian cricketer Virat Kohli and actress Anushka Sharma was one of the biggest news of the year 2017. Needless to say, it was a great & pleasant surprise for the couple’s fans.
Virat and Anushka got married on December 11 in Tuscany, Italy, and they gave two receptions for their relatives, friends and colleagues; the first one was held in New Delhi on December 21 while the other was in Mumbai which took place yesterday (December 26) at St. Regis.
Many eminent personalities, such Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, Zaheer Khan, Sagarika Ghatge, A R Rahman, Priyanka Chopra, Rekha, Kangana Ranaut, Madhuri Dixit Nene and others graced the grand reception but what shocked everyone was the presence of former Indian cricketer and national coach Anil Kumble.
Anil Kumble attended the event with his wife and this gave enough fodder to Twitterati to have a field day.
Anil Kumble was the coach of Indian cricket team but he quit his post, making it clear that his style of working was not liked by some people in the team and his indication was towards the captain Virat Kohli. After Anil Kumble left his job, Virat was criticised a lot because everyone thought that he has done it purposely for making the seat vacant for former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri.
However, it seems that both Virat and Anil Kumble like to keep their personal and professional lives separate and this is how Twitter reacted over Anil Kumble’s presence at Virushka’s reception:
Kumble is a legend:
When you attend your ex's wedding….

Nice gesture on Kohli’s part:
so much has happened throughout that champions trophy that maybe shouldn’t have happened but nevertheless, great to see Kohli has invited Kumble to this great occasion #VirushkaReception

Virat Kohli invited Anil Kumble to his reception because he wasn't satisfied with the photographers in his wedding and 1st reception #VirushkaReception

It’s true for many people:
From cricketers to Bollywood stars, everyone graced the occasion of Virat and Anushka's wedding reception in Mumbai.
