Previously, Anushka and Virat have made multiple requests to paparazzi and media, asking them not to publish pictures of their daughter. “We seek privacy for our child and would like to do our best to give her a chance to live her life freely away from media and social media. As she is older, we cannot restrict her movement and hence your support is needed so kindly practice (refrain) in the matter. A special thank you to fan clubs and people of the internet for going out of your way to not post images. It was kind and highly mature of you," they said in a statement.

Vamika was born on January 11 last year. While Anushka and Virat often share pictures of her on their social media, they make sure never to reveal her face.
