Hindu festival Karwa Chauth is popular amongst women since they hold day-long fast praying for the long life of their husbands. Seldom one sees a celebrity husband flaunting the festival to express his love for his wife. But, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli on Thursday took to social media to share a photo with actress-wife Anushka Sharma to celebrate Karwa Chauth.
Virat Kohli wrote, “The ones who fast together laugh together, Happy Karva Chauth.” In the photo shared by the Indian skipper, while Anushka had chosen to dress in red saree, Kohli himself had opted for traditional Indian kurta.
Kohli’s post went viral in no time with more than 2.5 million people liking his photo with Anushka on Instagram alone. Comments such as ‘Best couple in the world’ and ‘sweet couple’ flooded Kohli’s timeline.
Anushka too shared the same photo with a caption that read, “My partner for lifetime & beyond and my fasting partner for the day.
Happy karvachauth to all.”
Reacting to Anushka’s post, actress Priyanka Chopra wrote, “U guys r the cutest!”
Kohli was recently in the news after he went passed Sir Donald Bradman’s record of scoring the most number of 150 runs as a Test captain after he scored a double-century against South Africa. His splendid batting performance ensured that India beat South Africa comprehensively.
India under Kohli have beaten West Indies in West Indies and South Africa in the ongoing series even though one more Test match is yet to be played.
