Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli hosted their final wedding function – the much-awaited reception at Mumbai’s St. Regis – on Tuesday night. After the big fat Punjabi reception in New Delhi, this was the last leg of the wedding function.
While the New Delhi reception was the talk of the town with Prime Minister Narendra Modi being one of the guests, Mumbai reception too had an impressive line-up of guests and was attended by the bigwigs of the cricket world as well as Bollywood A-listers. From Bachchans to M.S.Dhoni to Ranbir, Katrina, Kangana, all were there.
Virat and Anushka made a stunning appearance in Sabyasachi couture and sent the paparazzi into a tizzy. Anushka looked resplendent in a sequinned smokey grey lehenga while Virat complimented her in an indigo velvet bandhgala and silk pants. Anushka accessorised with exclusive hand-crafted jewellery, also designed by Sabyasachi – a brilliant neck-piece with rose cut diamonds, solitaires, briolettes and Japanese baroque pearls to go with one-piece stud earrings. Virat’s accessories included handcrafted vintage gold buttons. The lavish Mumbai reception is the second part of the post-wedding festivities after Virushka had a big fat Punjabi reception in New Delhi’s Taj Diplomatic Enclave last week.
The couple had a fairytale wedding in a faraway destination – they married at a heritage resort in the Italian countryside of Tuscany on December 11 with just close friends and family in tow. But the one in Mumbai was primarily for Anushka’s friends and colleagues.
