The celebrations for Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma continue as they hosted a spectacular reception in Delhi.

Taking place on 21st December 2017, it was held in the Taj Diplomatic Enclave.

While guests mainly included the couple’s family and close friends, one famous face did attend the reception – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi!

After their romantic honeymoon, Virat and Anushka flew to Delhi, where they met the political leader. Reports claimed they had invited him to the occasion.

It seems then he agreed to visit, as he posed with the couple during the night.

The newly-weds looked utterly enchanting in their outfits. Anushka chose another Sabyasachi creation, similar to her Tuscany wedding. This time she wore a dazzling red-and-gold saree, complete with stunning jewellery.

She styled her hair into a low bun, with white flowers attached to her raven locks. We wonder if Anushka will wear Sabyasachi in her second reception?

The fashion designer appeared pleased she chose the gown and said on Instagram:

“Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better.

“I know copies of this saree will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka!”

Meanwhile, Virat donned a black kurta suit, along with a colourful shawl, decorated with regal patterns. Together, they look a dashing and lovely couple.

While Narendra Modi was one of the star attractions of the night, the couple also invited a couple of famous friends. Eagle-eyed fans spotted cricketers Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan and Gautam Gambhir.

For entertainment, popular Punjabi singer Gurdas Maan belted out harmonious tracks. A viral video has even emerged showing the couple dancing along to Gurdas’ sensational music.
