There is a lot in the name. Especially in our nation, when a girl is expected to change her surname post marriage. So when Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma tied the knot with Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli in a private wedding ceremony in Tuscany, Italy, everyone was pleasantly surprised.

Couture designer Sabyasachi, who styled Virat and Anushka for the wedding, posted a wish on his social handle later introducing the Sabya bride as Anushka Sharma Kohli. This was bound to grab eyeballs. And it managed to do so.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are two successful examples of actresses who opted for their husbands’ surnames and their careers are flourishing even after their weddings. So is Anushka Sharma’s name change going to help her in any manner? Is it just a sign of love or there is additional math to it? Renowned numerologist Sanjay B Jumaani decoded this puzzle exclusively for Jumaani categorically dismisses the new tag, #Virushka for the couple as it adds to a number that denotes bad partnerships and unions. The newlywed bride, the First Lady of the Indian Cricket Team, has more options to try from.


“The name Anushka Virat Kohli adds to Number 1, Sun, same as her Birth Number (1st), a name number even more powerful than her existing name, Anushka Sharma. The other option would be Anushkaa V Sharma. These names would augur well for her personal as well as professional growth,” assures Jumaani! And what about Anushka Sharma Kohli? “It would be the second best option as it would produce 21 that denotes success but after an uphill battle.

She’s an Earth Sign while he’s a Water; hopefully, she will be able to ‘ground’ him and channelize his energy constructively,” adds Jumaani.

“Number 1 denotes Sun (Leadership) and she will definitely be the Woman on Top a.k.a The Captain at home!” declares the man who is sought after by celebs like Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni.

Dwelling further on the number game, Jumaani explains, “Number 6, Venus, is the planet of Love that’s common between the two as Virat is born on November 5, 1988 (5+11+1988=6) while Anushka is a Taurus (Ruler 6, Venus). Another common factor is number 5 (Mercury) that’s Virat’s DOB as well as his name Number (32). On the other hand, Anushka’s destiny number is 5 (1+5+1988=5).”

With the upcoming Cricket World Cup in 2019, Sanjay B Jumaani shares this interesting trivia. “The other number 1s who have been lucky for their Captain husbands include Mrs. MS Dhoni and Mrs. Rahul Dravid, who were both born on 19/11.”
