Virushka is vacationing in New York Image: Instagram
India skipper Virat Kohli on Thursday confirmed he is in New York with girlfriend Anushka Sharma after images of the two hanging out together at the Big Apple started doing rounds on social media.
Virat posted a selfie with Anushka on Instagram and wrote, "Much needed break with my ❤"
Seems like Virat made a pit stop in the US to spend some quality time with his actor girlfriend instead of directly returning to India after the West Indies tour got over.
Anushka is reportedly in the city to attend the IIFA Awards, to held on July 14-15, where she has won a nomination for the Performance in a Leading Role - Female category for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Virat is coming off a long home season, followed by the IPL, the ICC Champions Trophy and the recently concluded West Indies tour. The Delhi batsman will be flying off to Sri Lanka later this month, where India will play three Tests, five ODIs and a T20I. The India skipper has also been at the centre of a storm after former India coach Anil Kumble resigned in June, citing breakdown in relations with Virat.
The brief respite was a much-needed one for Virat, and what better way to spend it than being with the love of your life.
