NEW DELHI: Our favourite couple is back in India and the second part of their wedding festivities has officially kicked off with a grand reception held at the Taj Hotel in Delhi.

Those in attendance included India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, cricketers Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan. Many other politicians and high profile businessmen also attended. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had gone to Modi’s office last week to invite him for the reception.

The reception in Delhi was to be held for close family and friends, while a grander reception will be held on December 26 in Mumbai. The Mumbai reception is expected to have the biggest names from Bollywood and the world of cricket in attendance.

For the reception, Anushka and Virat chose to wear Sabyasachi Mukherjee again. With a neatly-tied bun encircled in a mogra gajra, Anushka wore a traditional red and gold saree with a heavy palla and jadau jewellery; chuda and sindoor in place. Virat appeared dapper in a black achkan and white churidaar and heavily embroidered shawl with golden border in black mojris.

I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. And much to my absolute delight, it would be a red Benarasi saree. From the by-lanes of Peeli Kothi in Benaras. I was particularly excited about this look because I have seen an entire generation of Bengali women getting married in red Benarasi sarees. The red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful. She chose to wear heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this saree will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka! Virat chose to complement his new bride in a very subtle and elegant manner. He wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the house buttons in 18k gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar. He teamed it with mojris from the Sabyasachi accessories line and a hand-embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from our ‘Kashmir Revival’ project. @anushkasharma @virat.kohli @bridesofsabyasachi @groomsofsabyasachi @tajdiplomaticenclave For all jewellery related queries, kindly contact [email protected] #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #SabyasachiJewelry #AnushkaSharmaViratKohliReception #Virushka #AnushkaSharma #ViratKohli

Sabyasachi in an Instagram post shared the thought process that went behind the couple’s dresses. He wrote, “I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception.

As for Virat, the designer said, “Virat chose to complement his new bride in a very subtle and elegant manner. He wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the house buttons in 18k gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar. He teamed it with mojris and a hand-embroidered antique Pashmina shawl.”

Needles to say, the couple looked absolutely royal and their reception and we cannot wait to see what they will be wearing next.

Virat and Anushka tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony in Italy which was only attended by close friends and family and came as a surprise to fans. Both Kohli and Anushka released an official statement accompanied by a couple of pictures from the ceremony to announce their wedding.

The couple then left for Finland for their honeymoon before returning to India.

After the reception in Mumbai, the duo will leave for South Africa where the Indian cricket team is playing. After ringing in the New Year with Virat, Anushka will return to finish her film commitments. The actor is currently working on her home production Pari and in Aanand L Rai’s film with Shah Rukh Khan.
