Virushka relationship hits a rough patch

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma began dating in 2013. However, three years down the line, the couple experienced a rough patch in their relationship. In 2016, they reportedly broke up. Reports claimed that while Virat was keen on tying the knot with the Band Baaja Baaraat actress, the latter did not want to commit. This is said to have led to a rift between the two.

How Virat's 'golden post' led to Virushka's patch-up

While Virat and Anushka were reportedly on a break, the former's performance in the T20 World Cup was "outstanding" which led to him being declared Player of the Tournament. On social media, netizens began trolling Anushka saying, it was because of their breakup that Virat's performance soared during the tournament.

At the time, Virat put out a post on X, saying, "Shame on people for trolling @AnushkaSharma non-stop. Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity", along with an image saying "SHAME".

The tweet was reshared by about 40,000 accounts and liked by more than one lakh people on the microblogging site. Later that year, it was also declared the Golden Tweet of 2016.
