Virat Took 3 Months to Find the Perfect Wedding Ring
It seems Virat took almost three months to finalise a beautiful wedding ring for Anushka.
“Virat picked a very rare diamond ring for Anushka that has been specially crafted by an ace designer from Austria. The design is unimaginably beautiful and reflects surprising elements, every time you see it from different angles. It costs about Rs 1 crore but it’s totally worth the money because whoever will see it, definitely wouldn’t be able to take their eyes off it,” says a source close to the couple.
We just hope Anushka hasn’t lost this ring too…like the way she lost it in the movie ‘jab harry met sejal’.
Borgo Finocchieto, Hotel in Tuscany
The couple got married in the heritage hotel, Borgo Finocchieto, in Tuscany.
According to a report in Forbes, Borgo Finocchieto is the second-most expensive holiday rental during Christmas and New Year.
The village or borgo is located in the scenic locales of Tuscany, an hour from Florence’s airport.
What did They Wear?
For the D-day, Anushka wore a pale pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads. The bridal jewellery, handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls, was by the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection.
The groom looked smart in an ivory raw silk sherwani hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern, with an old rose silk kota safa. The couple, who has been together for four years, is said to have chosen a luxury heritage resort Borgo Finocchieto, a little over 100 km away from here, for their nuptials. They appointed boutique wedding planning and production experts Shaadi Squad to ensure their celebrations were special and classy.
Virat Anushka Wedding: Ad Gurus Not Sure How it Will Affect the Couple’s Brand
Kohli endorses several high-end brands including Audi, Tissot and MRF. Anushka Sharma also has several brands in her kitty – Polaroid, Pepsi and her own apparel brand, Nush.
Anushka charged around 20 lakh for her first advertisement with Parachute, she now charges around Rs 1.5 crore a day for advertisements. Virat Kohli’s endorsement fee is around Rs 5 crore a day. According to multiple reports, it is also believed that Kohli charges about Rs 3 crore per Instagram post.
Many feel that Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma together would be a force to reckon with.
“They are not only two big brands coming together. Their presence creates a story, something more than just face value. It also has a lot to do with the fact that they are dating, so people naturally don’t only see an ad, they see more than that,” says Manish Porwal of Alchemist.
Both the stars have also ventured into different businesses.
Virat has invested in a sports start-up, running a gym chain called Chisel and is the co-owner of UAE Royals, a tennis team from Dubai. Anushka has recently started her own apparel label called Nush and is the founder of the production house, Clean Slate Films that has made movies like NH10 and Phillauri.
Most ad-men believe the duo’s collective power could turn the fortunes of any company overnight.
However, there are some who beleive it woudn’t make much difference. On the other hand, brand value analyst Harish Bijoor says, “I have contrary views on this, while it is great that the couple got married but their brand value will go down. Individually each of them have great brand presence but just like Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan they will eventually become just another couple. I wish them all the best for their life.”
