Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma has reached Sydney, Australia, to watch beau Virat Kohli, vice captain of the Indian cricket team, take on the Aussies in the World Cup semi final.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which earlier didn’t allow wives and girlfriends of players to stay with them, has now had a change of mind and allowed the players to have their dear ones by their side.
Bollywood and cricket, India’s two 'religions' have intertwined in this relationship and both are about putting up a show. The game of cricket is as much a performance art for rabid Indian fans as Bollywood is. And the show that Virat put up will not be forgotten in a hurry by the people.
The match versus Australia is going to be a tough one for the Indian cricket team, and Anushka's presence in the audience may make Virat Kohli walk the extra mile to secure a big win for India.
