Virat Kohli holidaying with girlfriend Anushka in South Africa

Lovebirds Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma took time off from the hectic schedule and holidaying at a private game reserve in Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Virat Kohli posted a picture of himself relaxing in front of a pool on Instagram with the caption: 'Chilling in the wild. Peaceful'.

Virat, who is six months younger to Anushka reportedly dating the actress for quite sometime. The couple came close during a shampoo brand shoot and they hit it off instantly.  

Virat and Anushka remain strongly connected even in tough times. When Anushka was criticised for Virat’s poor show at the World Cup, Virat stood by Anushka’s side and remained attached.

She had to bear several unpleasant tweets like “I knew Anushka landing up in Sydney was a bad idea!” and “Worst mistake Anushka Sharma made in her life was to be in Sydney for the Semi’s! Ab poora desh nahi maaf karne waala! ??” While many Twitteratis seemed in full mood to make fun of her – “What did Anushka Sharma tell Virat Kohli before he went out to bat today? ‘Virat, I want you here in 5 minutes’”

But the couple remains unaffected by such comments and their love blooms despite of such criticism. While Virat has openly confessed his love for her, it is Anushka people had been waiting to hear from. And she finally broke the silence recently and made it all clear. In an interview, the actress had said – “I am in a relationship with him and I have respect for my relationship. The only reason I don’t talk about it is because we don’t know where to draw the boundary.” She even gave the reason why she has been hesitant to accept it. Anushka doesn’t want to “subject it to entertainment news”- is what she says.
