Cricketer Virat Kohli and Hindi cinema actor Anushka Sharma sprung the surprise of the year. Well, almost. The celebrity couple’s Tuscan wedding was confirmed on the evening of December 11, 2017, sending social media into a tizzy.
While the celebrations are slated to last till the end of 2017, the question on everyone’s mind is: do they have a house they can call home after the confetti settles? According to sources, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, affectionately called ‘Virushka’, will almost certainly move into the cricketer’s apartment in Worli, Mumbai.
Virat Kohli bought the luxury pad in 2016 for $5 million USD for a residential high rise pad, Omkar ‘1973’. The 7,171-square-foot apartment is located in tower C—the most luxurious of the three towers in the complex—and faces the Arabian Sea.
The Omkar 1973 offers three cylindrical towers that rise over 70 floors with four-bedroom ‘show’ apartment has a few defining features—a ceiling height of 13 feet that creates a large space, and decks or verandas that extend from each bedroom. Omkar’s ‘1973’ also comes with an indoor tennis court, a pet clinic for pooches, and a day-care centre for children.
Other features include a grand entrance lobby, dedicated spa for pets, fitness and sports facilities, a sky terrace for hosting parties and dedicated areas for kids – including a crèche, pool, and play area.
Virat and Anushka will also have a familiar face as a neighbour. Cricketer Yuvraj Singh also purchased an apartment on the 29th floor of the same tower in 2013. The couple will throw a reception in New Delhi, followed by another one in Mumbai. ‘Virushka’ will also travel to South Africa for their honeymoon.
