Virat Kohli's wedding tweet ranks only second to South superstar Surya Sivakumar's tweet revealing the second look of his film Thaana Serndha Kootam. And in doing so, Virat Kohli has actually scored the Golden Tweet Of The Year twice in a row. In 2016, Virat's tweet defending Anushka recorded the highest number of re-tweets. Right after the semi-finals of the World T20 championship, Anushka was trolled for Virat's performance on the pitch. Virat tweeted a picture of the word 'SHAME' along with the words: "She has always only given me positivity."
 

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli will wrap their wedding festivities with the Mumbai reception scheduled for today. They hosted a reception for friends and family in New Delhi on December 21. Virushka will fly off to South Africa on December 27, where Virat will prepare for an upcoming series. Anushka will ring in New Year with her husband and return in Mumbai early 2018 to complete her pending work commitments - a film with Aanand L Rai, YRF's Sui Dhaaga and the promotions of Pari.
