Virat Kohli dumps Anushka, woos Ileana D’Cruz

Cricketer Virat Kohli who is in the news for his alleged affair with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma will now get a new girl to romance in the new same shampoo brand ad which Anushka had endorsed. The actress's packed schedule is said to be the reason of her not being part of the new ad. Anushka who has wrapped the shooting of ‘Bombay Velvet’ got busy with her home production ‘NH10’. Her absence proved blessing for the ‘Main Tera Hero’ actress Ileana D’Cruz.

Says Anushka's spokesperson, "Despite her best efforts it was impossible for her to accommodate this ad as her film schedule was locked way in advance. The brand waited till the last moment to see if something could be worked out but it was just not possible." The spokesperson added that Anushka will continue to be a part of the brand till her contract expires and this is just a small change due to her hectic schedule. Anushka has assured she will shoot another commercial of the brand before she starts Zoya's film.

"It was impossible for Anushka to just up and leave. She tried to adjust her dates but NH10 was also working on a deadline because from mid-May Anushka will be on a cruise liner shooting Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadakne Do," says a source.

The endorsers were in a hurry to wrap up the shoot before IPL kick off and so they have replaced Ileana with Anushka.

Anushka and Virat is the latest item and the duo never missed any opportunity to spend time with each other. Earlier Virat Kohli flew down to Sri Lanka to be with Anushka when she was shooting for ‘Bombay Velvet’. Anushka also had been to New Zealand and the duo were spotting in the street holding hands. The pictures went viral on web.
