New Delhi: Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli joined Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Har Ghar Tiranga‘ campaign to celebrate India’s 75th Independence Day. The actress, 34, shared a picture with Virat on Monday along with the Indian flag hoisted at their home. In a white kurta, Anushka is seen smiling, standing next to Virat in the picture. “Celebrating 75 years of our independence. Wishing all the Indians around the world a very Happy Independence Day! Jai Hind,” Anushka wrote in the caption. On the other hand, Virat Kohli changed his Instagram display picture to the tri-colour.
Take a look at Anushka Sharma’s post below:
Other celebrities to join the campaign are Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan, Kartik Aaryan and Aamir Khan. SRK posted a video with his family, hoisting the flag at his home Mannat. He wrote: “Teaching the young ones at home the essence and sacrifice of our Freedom Fighters for our country India, will still take a few more sittings. But getting the flag hoisted by the little one made us all FEEL the pride, love and happiness instantly.”
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma has been training for her upcoming film Chakda Xpress. Being directed by Prosit Roy, the film is a biopic on cricketer Jhulan Goswami, one of the greatest women fast bowlers of all time. The film will show Jhulan Goswami’s journey in the field of cricket and the problems she faced.
Anushka was seen last in Aanand L Rai’s Zero co-starring Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in 2018. The actress, however, was busy as a producer for projects such as Paatal Lok and Bulbbul.
