So Anushka Is Mrs Virat Kohli Now, What Next  For Her?

Lo aa gayi  ‘Milan’ ki raat.

Thus  drops the  shimmying  curtain on  four days of Italian intrigue in Tuscany and Milan that would have put Don Corelone and his family in neighbouring Sicily to shame.

 Will they,won’t they? Went the Indian media. Some of  them even flew down to Tuscany at their organizations’ expense parking themselves outside the venue of the marriage.

Why  couldn’t we respect  Anushka’s and Virat’s request for a private wedding and leave them alone?

Close friends like Karan Johar and Ranbir Kapoor did. They left the couple alone in spite of being enormously close to Anushka. Sources say Anushka had confided in some close friends in  the film industry  about her wedding. These include Aditya Chopra , Rani MukherjeeKaran JoharRanbir Kapoor and  Shah Rukh Khan. These friends of the actress understood her need for privacy.They steered clear .

 But  the paparazzi didn’t.

Now that the wedding is done, what next  for Anushka? Well, she returns to resume her film with Shah Rukh Khan being directed by Aanand L Rai. How does Anushka intend  to take her career ahead after marriage? Her last three  films, Anushka’s home production PhillauriKaran  Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Imtiaz Ali’s  Jab Harry Met Sejal have under-performed at   the  boxoffice, the latter drastically so.

Though they once almost parted permanently due to a  dispute over Anushka’s career, it is doubtful that this—her career—would now be  a bone of contention in Virat Kohli and  Anushka’s  togetherness. It is  very clear that she will cut down on her assignments in future. The fact that she has  not signed  any new film is proof of her future plans.

Anushka has her home production Pari up for release  in February. After which there isAnand  L Rai’s untitled  film with Shah Rukh.That’s it for now.

Always selective and careful with her projects Anushka is  now  looking at probably doing one  film a year. Marriage is known to  halt many a Bollywood actresses’ career. It remains to  be seen how much of an effect being Mrs Virat Kohli has on her career. For every KareenaKapoor Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who have slowed down their  film appearances after marriage and motherhood, there is Sharmila Tagore and Kajol with a thriving career after marriage.

 So let’s not play party crashers at the AnushkaViarat shaadi by reminding her of  which way her career can go.Right now it’s time for  Band Baaja Baraat.And from what I hear, Ranveer Singh is dancing the Bhangra in anticipation of  a long happily married life for his  buddy.

 Rab Ne indeed Bana Di Jodi.
