It was revealed last week that Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli will be hosting a grand reception in Delhi. And last night we saw pictures of Anushka and Virat inviting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for their Delhi reception. Right now as you read this, the newly-weds are meeting and greeting the guests at their first reception in India. Pictures have just come in from the capital and we must say the two look royal.
Virat, dressed in a black sherwani, beautifully complements Anushka who’s glowing like a queen in a red and gold saree. Just like her wedding outfits, this saree is also designed by Sabyasachi. The red sindoor is adding drama to the look.
In an official release, Sabyasachi said, “I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in at least one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. And much to my absolute delight, it was a red Benarasi Saree. From the by-lanes of Peeli Kothi in Benaras. I was particularly excited about this look because I have seen an entire generation of Bengali women getting married in Red Benarasi sarees. The red bindi, the sindoorand the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful. She chose to wear heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this saree will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka!”
He added, “Virat chose to complement his new bride in a very subtle and elegant manner. He wore a black textured silk bandhgala with the house buttons in a 18K gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar. He teamed it with mojris from the Sabyasachi accessories line and a hand embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from our Kashmir Revival project.”
The reception, we hear, will be attended by all the high profile people of Delhi as well as Virat and Anushka’s family and close friends. On the 26th December, the couple will be hosting another big reception in Mumbai which will be attended by all the bigwigs of the cricket and the film industry.
Since the time news of their marriage broke out, Internet has been buzzing with new pictures and videos of the couple. Right now all eyes are set on Delhi where the reception is taking place and we too are waiting for more pictures to come out. Stay tuned.
