Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has shown her preference for movie career to marriage plans for now and denied rumours that she is going to marry cricket player Virat Kohli anytime soon as claimed by BCCI recently.
The decision by Anushka Sharma to deny rumours was not new in Bollywood, which is more career-centric and friendship cannot always stretch to wedding unless the career is at its winding up stage for many, barring few like Kajol or Madhuri Dixit.
In fact, Anushka’s career was on a long sabbatical owing to her reported plastic surgery of face or lips last year, besides her film “Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola” underperforming at the box office. Any move towards wedding now would have capped her career, especially the success of her forthcoming film with Aamir Khan in “PK” to be released in December this year.
Other major films in production like “NH10” and “Bombay velvet” with Ranbir Kapoor next year. No heroine would have risked her rising career confirming the wedding plans, even if they are on the platter. So is Anushka Sharma’s denial and the fans and the BCCI should realize that wedding is something personal not to be confirmed or highlighted in the public.
Her representative’s statement to the media to desist from asking any personal questions about the matter should well be requested.
“There are several stories online about Anushka Sharma’s impending wedding. However I would like to set the record straight that there is absolutely no truth to these rumours and I would like to request you to refrain from conjecturing about the same,” her representative has made it clear this weekend.
Coming to Anushka Sharma’s stay with Virat Kohli during the Indian Team’s visit to England and similar tours in New Zealand should be seen in a broader perspective than narrowing it down to Indian tradition that is no more relevant in the modern lifestyle.
More than BCCI’s decision to allow Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli stay in the same hotel during the tour of England, the matter is between two individuals and especially if both are celebrties, it should not infringe on their personal decisions.
BCCI should learn to desist from making explanations on behalf of players or their friends to save its skin. More than that, it should be seen as a celebrity cheering her friend to do better playing for the country.
