The world knows that hotshot cricketer Virat Kohli is pretty love-struck and has been spending a lot of time with alleged girlfriend Anushka Sharma in Sri Lanka on the sets of Bombay Velvet. He was also seen at the party thrown by Vikas Bahl on the Bombay Velvet sets to celebrate the success of Queen. Yet when questioned they prefer to remain mum or mouth the ‘we are good friends’ cliché.
But while Anushka and Virat managed to keep their stay in Sri Lanka rather private, it appears whoever did Virat’s flight tickets back to Mumbai, goofed! He found himself seated on a flight which also carried part of the media that visited Sri Lanka to cover the shoot of Bombay Velvet. Tabloid reports say Anushka all but fumed at this and we are told that she gave the travel people concerned quite a mouthful!
Incidentally, the buzz is that the endorsement Virat and Anushka do together hasn’t gathered the kind of response it’s meant to. A source says that the brand is re-thinking their strategy and thinking of roping in another big star for the next season of the ad.
