Virat and Anushka got married secretly in Tuscany, Italy, but their receptions were grand and star-studded. Their first reception was in New Delhi on December 21 and it was attended by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with other VIPs. The second reception was in Mumbai on December 26 and it was attended by some high-profile guests from cricket world and Bollywood.
When everyone was busy watching the celebrities in Virushka’s Mumbai reception, there was one guy who didn’t seem to be a celebrity but was getting clicked with many celebrities. We are talking about a differently-abled Sri Lankan cricket fan named Gayan Senanayake who was a guest of the Indian skipper Kohli.
Gayan is one of those ardent supporters of Sri Lankan cricket team who don’t mind travelling everywhere with the team wherever they go to play. Kohli and Gayan know each other since 2007 when U-19 Indian team won the World Cup under his captaincy and Gayan was already in India as he was here to support the Sri Lankan team.
Gayan has posted his photo with Virat and Anushka on his social media account and wrote,
“I am in reception of my best friend Virat and Anushka in Mumbai”.
He told India Today,
“Happy to be here, he is my good friend and invited me to his wedding reception.”
He also told when he first met Kohli,
“I met him at the 2007 Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia before he even came to Sri Lanka. And every time he came we stayed in touch.”
He further added,
“Virat is a good captain, good cricketer and has a good average. I like cricket and the players.”
Gayan also got clicked with legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and many others.
This is definitely a very sweet gesture by the Indian captain and he has given his fans one more reason to love him.
