The marriage and the subsequent receptions of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were the most talked about events during 2017. The adorable couple got married at a scenic venue Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany, Italy in the presence of very few close friends and family. They also hosted a couple of receptions in Delhi and Mumbai recently. However, Bollywood actress Anushka has faced severe criticism on Twitter for applying Sindoor and called it a ‘Display of Patriarchy’.

Both Virat and Anushka looked like a dream couple during each of their ceremonies and the fans kept on gushing over their viral pictures throughout the last couple of weeks. Though there was an undue criticism of the couple for getting married in Italy as few lashed out at them and even called ‘anti-nationalists’. Now the sindoor of Anushka Sharma has come under the scanner as the social media is engaged in the war of words unnecessarily.

Twitter calls Anti-feminist

The month of December will always be special for Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma as they unfolded a new chapter of their life. The event of their marriage was so huge and it was natural that there would be some who would criticise them and few would find a way to troll them. While the memes which were created were more famous than the ‘anti-nationalist’ taunt. But the issue of Sindoor was an unexpected one to pop up and has taken everyone by surprise.

Delhi reception was held on December 21 for family and friends as a couple of Indian cricket team members also graced their presence. The newlywed couple looked absolutely stunning together as the bride wore a red saree and applied a Sindoor following a Bengal tradition according to a Twitter user. There were mixed reactions over her look but most of the lady Twitterati called her ‘anti-feminist’ and the harsh criticism is unfair on the part of the actress. Though there were some who supported her and reminded the people that is her ‘freedom of expression’.
