On the work front, Anushka’s last acting project was a movie called ‘Zero’ where she shared the screen with Shahrukh Khan. However, as a producer, she came up with two new shows – “Pataal Lok” and “Bulbbul” – during the lockdown.
Anushka and Virat tied knots in a private ceremony in Tuscany, Italy on December 11, 2017.
Meanwhile, Kohli is all set to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The cash-rich league is slated to commence from September 19 in the foreign land of the UAE.
