Cricketer Virat Kohli returns India with actress wife Anushka Sharma on December 19 from their Honeymoon. He headed towards his Gurgaon residence to spend some time there. On December 21, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli threw a luxurious reception in Delhi. The grand celebration was graced by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. The newlyweds were dressed in Sabyasachi creations and they totally complemented each other.
Virat Kohli was looking every bit royal in the black bandhgala and white churidar. And do you know that? The bandhgala of Virat was embedded with 6 buttons of 18k gold. He paired it with mojris and a hand-embroidered Pashmina shawl from the designer’s ‘Kashmir Revival’ project. Whereas his actress wife Anushka was donned in a traditional red and gold sari. It was a Banarasi sari styled with a diamond choker and jhumkas. Not only that, she was looking a pure newly-wed Indian bride with the bindi on the forehead, red sindoor and the gajra-adorned bun.
In his Instagram post, the renowned fashion-designer Sabyasachi wrote,
“I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. I was particularly excited about this look because I have seen an entire generation of Bengali women getting married in red Benarasi sarees. The red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful. She chose to wear heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this saree will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka!” Sabyasachi said in a statement.”
In an exclusive wedding reception, the couple invited their Delhi based friends and relatives. Also in the pipeline is a grand reception to be held in Mumbai on December 26, 2017, which is expected to be graced by Bollywood biggies and leading sportspersons of the country.
