Indian captain and star player Virat Kohli and his lady love Anushka Sharma were recently spotted spending quality time together in New York City. The duo are in Big Apple to attend the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards that is scheduled to be held on the evening of July 15, which is Monday morning in India.
Now, the two are chilling in New York where Virat has flown to spend the much needed time with his girlfriend Anushka. And as it happened before, Virat dropped a selfie from their time together captioning the picture as, “much needed break with my love.”
Virat kept it simple with a white tee, while Anushka was seen wearing an olive green top.
The photo has already gone viral, receiving over a million likes in less than ten hours. Compliments poured in from fans, who could not get over how perfect Virat and Anushka looked together.
Earlier in the evening, another photo of Virat and Anushka went viral, in which the duo can be seen on the side-lines of a busy street. Dressed casually – the duo stepped out keeping the unpredictable weather in mind – Virat carries an umbrella in the photo.
Kohli and Anushka have occasionally posted pictures together, fuelling tabloid gossip about their affair. The last time Kohli shared a photo of the two together, it was to celebrate Valentine’s Day. He’d captioned that image, “Everyday is a valentine day if you want it to be. You make everyday seem like one for me. @anushkasharma”
Virat Kohli seems to be enjoying the much needed time off as the star makes most of the break in between a hectic Indian cricket calendar. India were busy with the Champions Trophy and immediately jetted of to the West Indies for a tour. The team now return to India for a small break before again heading off to Sri Lanka for a full tour.
Anushka will be attending IIFA 2017, which will happen at MetLife Stadium in New York on July 14-15, and July 16 will witness a closing party of Bollywood’s biggest event.
The duo’s romance encompasses over a timeline of four years, starting 2013. The couple briefly parted ways in 2015 but began making public appearances together March 2016 onwards. They were special guests at Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech’s destination wedding. In May this year, Anushka and Virat were also seen walking hand in hand to attend Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan’s engagement reception.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Anushka Sharma is gearing up for her upcoming film Jab Harry Met Sejal, opposite Shah Rukh Khan, releasing on August 4.
