Video: Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's heartwarming ad for Manyavar & Mohey
It is an open secret that Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma are in a relationship. They look great together and are more open about their relationship status now more than over.
A reflection of the same is their ever-increasing public appearances together like the one they made at Yuvraj Singh's wedding with the media making a beeline to get their picture clicked.
It is believed that Kohli and Anushka met each other first during the video shoot of their first commercial for Clear Shampoo. Their relationship has blossomed ever since and despite the minor blips, it has stood the test of time.
Both Virat and Anushka are a favorite among the leading brands with the former being one of the most marketable athletes globally.
One of Kohli's premier tie-ups is with Ethnic Men's wear brand Manyavar and when their women's brand Mohey recently roped in Anushka as their brand ambassador, 'Virushkians' were eagerly looking forward to seeing the couple in an ad together.
Their wish has been granted now with the duo appearing in a sweet romantic video commercial during the festive Diwali season.
The ad begins with Kohli and Anushka sitting together at a wedding and watching the newly-wed couple talking to each other.
They ask each other what one might be telling the other and Kohli and Anushka take turns to present their views in a funny yet heartwarming way as to how they would do if and when they tie the knot.
Virat promises to cook for 15 days in a month with Anushka taking a jibe that she would eat it without complaining no matter how bad the food is prepared.
Anushka then wittingly promises to keep all of the other half's secret passwords locked in her heart while also allowing him to win at carroms sometimes.
Virat responds by claiming that he will not watch any of the season finales of premier TV shows without her and promises not to make her hurry up while preparing to go out somewhere.
The jovial background music turns to a more serious one as Virat promises to take care of Anushka forever and receiving a likewise response.
The video ad, title Naye Rishte Naye Vaade' meaning 'New Relationship, New Promises,' ends with the brand emphasising on the entry of the women's brand (Mohey) to their existing portfolio (Manyavar), but Virushkians will no doubt hoping for a likewise association for the couple.
The duo has had times where they had their run-ins with the media for prying into their personal lives but with advertisements as sweet as this one, it's hard not be in awe of the couple who look great together and share a wonderful chemistry no doubt.
