India’s ultimate power couples, Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone and Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma, are the epitome of style and elegance, adored by legions of fans worldwide. Whenever they step out, they command attention and set tongues wagging with their impeccable fashion sense and undeniable charisma.
Film stars and sports personalities converged at the Indian Sports Honours 2023 in Mumbai last night where Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli were among the early guests. While Ranveer and Deepika made a statement appearance at the sports awards alongside the latter’s father, Prakash Padukone, Virat and Anushka posed together for pictures, causing a stir amongst the paparazzi and onlookers.
The star couples came under the same roof to celebrate the achievements of Indian players who have been making the country proud.

Cricketer Shubman Gill and Olympic gold medalist Neeraj Chopra dressed up for the occasion too.
At the event, the sartorially-inclined couple, Deepika-Ranveer, made a stunning statement in matching black ensembles. Padukone stole the show in a black sari, embroidered with delicate beige accents along the borders, paired with a sultry black full-sleeved blouse with a cut-out at the back.
Her beau, on the other hand, exuded his signature flamboyant style in a dapper black tuxedo paired with a pair of quirky sunglasses that added a touch of eccentricity to his look. The illustrious former Indian badminton player, Prakash Padukone looked suave in a classic white shirt, paired with a black blazer and matching pants.
But, Virat and Anushka, affectionately referred to as Virushka by their fans, stole the spotlight with their rare public appearance. Sharma stunned in an exquisite off-shoulder violet gown that featured a sultry slit on one side. She kept her accessories minimal, opting for elegant silver earrings and a few rings to complete the look. Her body-hugging outfit was paired with a sleek pair of black stilettos, accentuating her statuesque figure. Meanwhile, Kohli looked equally debonair in a sharp black blazer, complemented by a navy blue shirt and black formal pants.
