Valentine’s Day is still almost a fortnight away, but for some of our favourite Bollywood stars, every day is a day to celebrate their love for their beaus – even the ones they will never openly admit to, like in Sonam Kapoor’s case. Usually restrained about her private life, Sonam shared a mushy moment she shared with rumoured boyfriend Anand Ahuja – unusually for her. She’s not the only one to suddenly go public with PDA.
First, giving us massive couple goals were newlyweds Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. Yesterday, the Indian skipper led the country to a spectacular win in the first ODI against South Africa in Durban, ending the country’s 17-win streak on home turf. With 112 runs off 119 balls, Virat made his 33rd century in 50-over cricket, while securing India an easy six-wicket victory.
Naturally, wife Anushka was beyond thrilled with her husband’s ever-growing list of achievements. And for once, the usually private Anushka took to Instagram to express her love and happiness. In an Instagram story, Anushka plastered hearts and wrote, “What a guy” on Virat’s photo while sharing screenshots of the final moments of the match.
Anushka’s virtual PDA is understandable, considering how Virat never misses an opportunity to credit her for his success on the field. On January 15, during a test-match against South Africa, on reaching the 150-runs mark, Virat pulled off his glove and kissed the chain he wears around his neck – which is how he wears his wedding ring. A subtle but efficient slap in the collective faces of all those who take to trolling, abusing and blaming Anushka every time Virat’s performance on field doesn’t match up to their expectations.
Also in the mood for some coyness last night was Sonam Kapoor and rumoured beau Anand Ahuja. While Sonam still won’t confirm or deny whether they are dating, the couple has lately been featuring on each other’s Instagram quite prominently. While Anand routinely shares photos of Sonam with captions that clearly indicate how smitten he is, last night, Sonam shared an Instagram story that featured a video call with Anand. It’s so mushy, we didn’t know whether to call it cute or painful-to-watch. In it, Anand is heard telling Sonam, “You just called me funny-looking”, to which she responds, “You make funny faces.”
If you’re not already green with envy (or rolling your eyes) at all the coupled cheesiness on display, take a look at Mira and Shahid Kapoor’s photos as they turned showstopper for designer Anita Dongre on day one of Lakme fashion week.

There ought to be a law against looking this good and being this much in love, both at the same time.
