India’s most loved couple is now officially man and wife. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma got married in a dreamy affair in Tuscany, Italy on December 11 and headed straight for their honeymoon in Finland. The two later descended to India where they threw a reception for friends, family and bigwigs from the world of politics, business and sports in New Delhi. The videos and pictures from their grand do went viral on the internet within minutes of being posted on social media. Ever since, fans have been waiting to see how grand an affair their Mumbai reception will be.

Considering it is where Bollywood is based, it was only natural to expect some of the biggest names in the Hindi film industry to be part of the guest list, which also includes cricketers who are based out of the city and could not make it to the Delhi reception. As you read this, the reception is being held at Mumbai’s St Regis hotel. Amongst the early ones to arrive were former cricketer Sandeep Patil and wife, Sunil Gavaskar and wife, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Virat’s family, badminton ace Saina Nehwal, Virendra Sehwag, MS Dhoni with wife Sakshi and daughter Ziva, Umesh Yadav with wife Tanya, amongst others. From Bollywood, Boman Irani and wife, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and wife Anupama Chopra along with Rajkumar Hirani, Ramesh Taurani with wife, Prasoon Joshi with wife, AR Rahman, Kangana Ranaut, Siddharth Roy Kapur and brother Aditya Roy Kapur gave the evening a glitzy start.

To add to the glam factor of the Virat and Anushka’s big night, celebs like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda, Lara Dutt and Mahesh Bhupati, Katrina Kaif, Shah Rukh Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Sri Devi and Boney Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, newbie Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan, Rekha, Sachin Tendulkar with wife Anjali and daughter Sara and more descended at the venue. Check out the lovely pictures below:

Before joining their guests, just like their Delhi reception on December 21, Virat and Anushka met the media for a photo op and a few bytes. The two were in their usual element – fun, goofy and totally smitten with each other. While Virat chose a Jodhpuri, Anushka opted for a smokey grey, shimmery lehenga-choli designed by Sabyasachi for the Mumbai do. Virushka looked every bit like a couple right out of a Bollywood movie. As we get into the new year in just a few days, we wish this newly wed couple new beginnings full of love and joy.
