Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli ‘s social media behaviour suggests all may not be hunky dory in their relationship.
Fans of ‘Virushka’ – the couple nickname for cricketer Virat Kohli and actress Anushka Sharma – went into a tizzy recently after they unfollowed each other on Instagram. Rumour mills suggested that Virat ended his three-year relationship with Anushka after she declined his marriage proposal, saying that she wants to currently focus on her career. Now, with Virat unfollowing the Bombay Velvet actress on Twitter as well, is it a subtle message to the world about their ‘break-up’?
Though actresses dating cricketers is not new, Virushka became one of the most talked about couples in recent times. They first met in 2013 while shooting for a commercial and soon rumours of them being a couple started doing the rounds. They stuck to the “good friends” stance until a year ago. In February 2014, Anushka-Virat were spotted walking hand-in-hand in Auckland where India was playing against New Zealand. Later that year, the actress admitted to dating the young Test captain. Ever since, the duo has been spotted together, holidaying or visiting each other’s houses. He even stood up for her when she was blamed for his poor batting performance.
So now, by maintaining distance on social media, Virat has set the grapevine abuzz with rumours of trouble in paradise. However, his fan clubs claim that there is a problem with his Instagram account – it keeps blocking/ unfollowing those on his top-visited list. But he has unfollowed Anushka on Twitter too, technical error or not, we don’t know. She, however, continues to feature in his 9.24 million-strong followers’ list.
Despite repeated attempts, Anushka Sharma remained unavailable for comment.
