In recent years, Anushka and Virat have become more devout, and they often visit famous Hindu temples to offer their prayers. He has earlier gone to Vrindavan and Uttarakhand to explore the temples. Vamika, the couple’s daughter, accompanied them on a trip to Rishikesh and Vrindavan earlier this year. The family visited the ashram of Baba Neem Karoli in Vrindavan and the samadhi of Swami Dayanand Ji Maharaj in Rishikesh.
Virat and Anushka tied the knot on 11 December 2017 at Borgo Finocchio, an 800-year-old village that was renovated and turned into a boutique property. They welcomed their daughter Vamika in 2021. Anushka, who took a break after the birth of Vamika, will now be seen in sports drama ‘Chakda Express’, in which she will play the role of Indian fast bowler Jhulan Goswami.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli, one of the greatest batsmen of all time, is struggling to score runs in Tests in his last 20 Test innings.
