Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have asked the paparazzi to protect their kids’ privacy during their time in India. Like responsible people, the cameramen paid heed to their requests and avoided capturing the children through the lenses.

As a token of appreciation, the star couple sent gifts to the paps. Now, Virat has credited his wife Anushka for such a thoughtful gesture towards the media. Read on!

Virat Kohli credits Anushka Sharma for giving gifts to paps after Akaay’s birth

After being away from the limelight, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli welcomed their second child, a baby boy named Akaay in London in February this year. Soon after, the couple flew down to India with their kids as the Indian cricketer took part in the IPL 2024 tournament.

The star couple requested the shutterbugs not to click their kids Vamika and Akaay. Since they obliged their requests, the parents sent some gifts over to the paparazzi as a gesture of appreciation. A while ago when the paps thanked Virat for the gifts, she sweetly credited his wife for the act.

Minutes ago, the Indian cricketer was spotted at Mumbai airport departure, flying to an undisclosed location. This is when one of the paps told him, “Thank you so much for the gift.” Responding to it, Kohli said, “Ma’am ne diya hai bhai, maine nhi diya [Ma’am (Anushka Sharma) has given the gift and not me.]


Take a look:

A couple of months ago, the celeb couple announced the arrival of Akaay into their lives through a heartfelt note. It read, “With abundant happiness and our hearts full of love, we are pleased to inform everyone that on 15th February, we welcomed our baby boy Akaay & Vamika’s little brother into this world! We seek your blessings and good wishes in this beautiful time in our lives. We request you to kindly respect our privacy at this time. Love & Gratitude, Virat & Anushka.”
