WEB DESK: This year seems to be a year of break ups for B -Town love birds. After Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif and Farhan Akhtar-Adhuna Bhabani break ups comes the news of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s split.
According to a report on Mumbai Mirror, Anushka and Virat have ended their two year relationship.
A source confirmed the news of their break up to Mumbai Mirror claiming that all rumours making rounds on the media in this regard are true. “All rumours about Virat trying to woo Anushka back are hogwash.”
The source added that while the NH10 actress is maintaining silence on the breakup, her former beau has expressed it quite openly. “He unfollowed her on Twitter and Instagram and then, uploaded, deleted and reuploaded a photograph of himself, originally captioned, ‘Heartbroken’,” revealed the source.
The cricketer was recently spotted at actor Angad Bedi’s birthday bash where in he was was working the dance floor, greeting fellow revellers with, “I’m single, let’s dance”. An eyewitness at the bash informed the Indian daily that the 27-year-old cricketer was happy and, according to his close pals, “back to his natural, old self”.
Another guest at the party revealed that Virat had been confiding in them that he was “cloistered around his controlling girlfriend”.
The news of the split has come as a shock to many as it was just two months ago, when Anushka, in a candid chat with Anupama Chopra, spoke about touring the World Cup and making appearances at cricket tournaments.
“I am in a relationship with Virat and he wants me to come and watch him play and I want to watch him,” she had said.
The source mentioned two reasons for the split. The first that the two wanted different things from the relationship. ”Virat proposed marriage around New Year’s Eve. Anushka rejected it, categorically stating that it would be better for them to focus on their careers instead. They are both young and have a long journey ahead of them,” the source said.
Another reason the Indian daily reported is Anushka’s busy schedule which took Virat by surprise. The cricketer had taken a break from the India-Sri Lanka Twenty-20 series till February 14 in hopes of spending time with Anushka; however, his plans were cut short after Anushka took up projects during his leave. Mumbai Mirror reports that the couple has not been in touch for the past three weeks.
The PK actress has not yet opened up about the shocking split and has been keeping herself busy with the shoot of Sultan, alongside mega star Salman Khan. She also has three new projects set for this year.
The former love birds met during a commercial shoot in 2013 and were in a relationship since then.
