Virat Anushka’s wedding Aligns Bollywood and Cricket in a Relationship yet Again!
The news about beautiful Anushka Sharma getting married to hot cricket hunk Virat Kohli has hit the headlines like anything. They were not very open about their relationship for a long period of time but then one Tweet from Virat made it all clear. Relationship gurus, people close to the couple and even their fans were sure that this couple will definitely tie the knot and so it happened. The beautiful couple got married last week and what a fairy tale kind of a wedding it seems to be from the pictures that we all have seen so far!
Anushka wore a Sabyasachi design and she looked majestic on her big day and Virat on the other hand looked nothing less of a prince in the sherwani which was also designed by Sabyasachi. Looks like the couple have a lot in common which includes their fashion inclination as well.
But what is it about cricketers getting married to bollywood stars that captivates us Indians. Why do we all get so fascinated with bollywood marrying cricket that we almost feel nostalgic about the whole scenario? The couple had been dating for sometime. They looked so much in love that their fans were secretly hoping for this association to take place sooner than ever. There was a lot of speculation and adulation whenever the couple was seen together. As soon as they’d be seen together at an event people would bombard social-media about how cute they look together.
Cricket is the definition of sports for us Indians and Bollywood runs in our veins. We have been brought up watching movies where these actors are portrayed as the ultimate heroes. While growing up we start a virtual and one-sided relationship with the stars we admire and we want only the best to happen to them. Same is the case with cricketers. They represent our nation to the world and our team may not be the best in cricket but is certainly one of the best teams and thus when two beautiful people come together from two loved streams, fans tend to get glued to everything they do and same is the reason why we love to hear about actors falling in love with cricketers.
Bollywood has always had a close relationship with Cricket. Be it Sharmila Tagor getting married to Nawab Pataudi or Sangeeta Bijani falling for the married captain of Indian cricket team. People admire stories that involve bollywood and cricket. Be it Yuvraj Singh supposedly dating an A-lister bollywood diva or Zaheer Khan marrying not so successful Sagarika Ghatke or Harbhajan Singh marrying the dusky beauty Geeta Basra – such stories make us feel awed and almost wishing for them to be together forever. We want Bollywood and Cricket to have a happily ever after and there is a reason for that. On that note, I am sure many of us are wishing for this marriage to have a happy ending for the newly weds to have a beautiful life of bliss together.
