Mumbai: Indian captain Virat Kohli and wife, Bollywood superstar, Anushka Sharma attended the second edition of the Indian Sports Honours that took place at NSCI Dome, Worli in Mumbai on Friday. The couple later on posted pictures of them posing with one another dressed in the same formal attire that they wore at the function.
Both of them took to their social media accounts to post pictures in the attire.
Backed by Sanjiv Goenka, Chairman, RP-SG Group and India captain Kohli, the function was supposed to take place in February of this year, but it was postponed as a mark of respect to the martyred CRPF jawans in the Pulwama attack.
There were 11 categories that were awarded and all the winners were decided by the jury members who consisted of sporting greats such as Pullela Gopichand, Abhinav Bindra, Sardar Singh, Mahesh Bhupathi, P T Usha and Anjali Bhagwat.
Speaking on the awards, Virat Kohli said, “I always believe that sports is an integral part of every individual’s life starting from school and eventually translating to supporting their favourite athletes on TV and during sporting events. I am confident that these awards are a stepping stone which will further encourage talent to excel in their own category of sports.”
