Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli make headline every time they do something. While most of the times it is for their social media PDA, other times it is for the things they do which don’t go down too well with the netizens. The latter happened recently when Anushka was spotted in the official picture of BCCI. While we told you that the picture had received a lot of backlash, a recent report in the Hindustan Times stated that no protocol was broken.
This is the norm wherever the team travels. The High Commission invites the players with their relatives and it is eventually the decision of the individuals. Even in London, the players were invited along with their partners. There has been no breach of any protocol.
Anushka Sharma came to the reception for the Indian cricket team at the invitation of the high commissioner and his wife. The reception was hosted by the High Commissioner and his wife and not the High Commission. The group photo was taken as the team was entering the house. Ajinkya Rahane may have stood at the back on his own. He wasn’t asked to stand there. The reception was at the high commissioner’s residence and not at the high commission.
On the work front, Anushka will next be seen opposite Varun Dhawan in YRF’s Sui Dhaaga. The trailer for the film will release soon. Apart from that, she will also be seen in Aanand L Rai‘s directorial Zero which also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
Coming back to the picture, all the backlash can now finally take a back seat.
