In the moments following the Indian cricket team’s defeat to Australia in the ICC World Cup Final on Sunday at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, actress Anushka Sharma was spotted giving cricketer and husband Virat Kohli a hug nearby. Numerous Bollywood superstars expressed their admiration for the team’s work on social media. Vir Das, a stand-up comedian, and actors Suniel Shetty, Sonali Bendre, and Dia Mirza were among them.
