Shahrukh Khan certainly is the man of the moment for us. While the press couldn’t get Virat Kohli to admit his love for Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar could not make the Bombay Velvet babe spill beans on her cricketer boyfriend, SRK has managed the impossible. Not only did King Khan get Virat to wear a huge portrait of Anushka on his neck, but the actor even conducted a swayamvar for this sought after cricketing hero.
Both Virat and Anushka have taken time off from their busy schedule to spend time with each other. While their entries and exits from Mumbai are perfectly timed, the duo also ensures to fly down and visit each other in different places. Anushka was spotted walking hand-in-hand with Mr Kohli in Auckland and Virat flew all the way to Sri Lanka immediately after the T20 World cup to join his lady love on the sets of Bombay Velvet. That’s not it, we hear he flew all the way to NH 10 sets in Jodhpur before taking off for the IPL 7 season series in Abu Dhabi.
Shahrukh certainly seems to be keeping a tab on the recent gossip and decided to up the fun quotient at the IPL 7 opening ceremony by conducting a swayamvar for Virat. Interestingly, Kohli didn’t shy away from picking the picture of his real life lady love on stage. And SRK took this fun moment several notches high by getting Virat to wear a huge picture of Anushka on his neck. We’re sure Anushka must be blushing (read: feeling nakes, just like on Koffee with Karan 4).
This isn’t the first time that King Khan has revealed a cricketer’s love affair on stage, Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni’s attraction towards Deepika Padukone were all openly discussed by Mr Khan in IPL’s earlier shows.
Now that Virat has chosen has lady openly, we hope Ms Sharma too will talk about her handsome boyfriend freely.
