Anushka Sharma spills the beans on opting for a pastel pink lehenga on her wedding with Virat Kohli


Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are bona fide trendsetters and there ain't a denial about it. Be it their impeccable and unique chemistry or the perfect blend of best of both-films and cricket world, they are the most sought after couples in the nation currently. While we all keep gushing over their camaraderie on other days, how can one forget their fairytale-like wedding? It won't be wrong to say that Anushka's and Virat's Lake Como nuptials created a stir across the fashion world as well as the entertainment industry with pictures of the couple flooring us with their beauty and simplicity. From the actress' graceful and elegant pastel pink floral lehenga to Virat's stylish and charming sherwani, it all worked like magic and there ain't a denial. And since then, new brides are leaving no stone unturned to recreate Anushka's enchanting look for their D-Day, all thanks to the actress' effortlessness and ace fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee's expertise. Touching upon the trend that she set, Anushka, during an interview with a magazine, revealed how she curated her wedding look with Sabyasachi and made it clear that she wants to deviate away from typical shades of red for the day wedding. She further added that her idea comprised of pastel colours and flowers which wasn't too much, given the subtle vibes of the ambience.

“When I met Sabyasachi, I told him very clearly that for my wedding look I wanted to go with pale pink. I didn’t want to do a traditional red because it was a day wedding. I envisioned pastel colours, flowers. The vibe was such—not too much,” Anushka told.

Anushka further added that she wanted to go with a traditional Benarasi saree over a modern style for Virat and her Delhi reception. She continued to disclose that she had ideated a sindoor and heavy jewellery look for the evening that played host to the Prime Minister of India-Mr. Narendra Modi. Soon after hearing her idea, Sabyasachi was very excited, said Anushka. "I told Sabya I wanted to do a traditional red Benarasi sari and I wanted to do it with the sindoor, the heavy traditional jewellery, all of that... And I think he was also very excited by the Benarasi red. I remember having a conversation with him where he said, ‘You know, nowadays a lot of girls wear gowns at their reception and I thought you’d ask me for something like that’ and I said, ‘No, I want to wear an Indian sari at my reception," Anushka added.

Anushka, an actress and Virat, a cricketer, tied the knot on December 11, 2017, at Lake Como in Italy with only family members and close friends in attendance. The couple, before taking the plunge, dated each other for quite some time and maintained a denial mode regarding the same. It was when they shared pictures from the wedding ceremony, their fans learned about their relationship.
