But while they managed to stay away from any media hype and attention while their wedding was underway in Italy, they are not going to enjoy the same privacy now. The couple is set to host a couple of reception in the coming days, The first one will be held in New Delhi for their relatives on 21st December, and it will be followed by a reception for industry friends and cricketers in Mumbai on 26th December. The couple now seems to have started inviting the guests.

Well, it looks like the first eminent personality who has been invited to the reception is none other than the honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The newlyweds personally met the Mr Modi and extended the invitation to him.

Narendra Modi also conveyed his regards and congratulated the couple on their marriage.

“Captain of the Indian cricket team @imVkohli and noted actor @AnushkaSharma met PM @narendramodi this evening. The Prime Minister congratulated them on their wedding,” tweeted the Prime Minister’s Office.

The Twitterati, meanwhile, was quick to jump into action as soon as the pictures of the couple’s meeting with the Prime Ministers was posted on the internet. While some took a dig at the BJP leader Panna Lal Shakya who had questioned Kohli’s patriotism for marrying in Italy, some just tried to draw a funny angle of the meeting:

Here are some of the reactions:


An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
