Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma tied the knot in 2017. They became parents to a lovely daughter, Vamika, in January 2021. Since then, the new parents have posted lots of pictures with their daughter. However, in all the pictures, her face is away from the camera. The couple has decided not to expose Vamika to the netizens until she herself has an idea of social media.
Understandable, fans are impatient to get a glimpse of Vamika. This gives rise to a lot of mistaken rumours. Recently, a selfie of Virat Kohli holding a baby was doing the rounds. Immediately, fans started wondering whether he has finally decided to show his daughter to the world. But all speculations turned out to be baseless. The picture in question was from 2017, even before Vamika was born. As for the identity of the girl, it was Hinaya, daughter of Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra.
During the 2017 IPL, Virat hung out with the adorable daughter of the fellow cricketer. He posted the selfie with the caption, “Baby hinaya looking for something in my beard 👀😃❤. And iam surprised how can someone be so beautiful and cuteee. What a blessing to @harbhajan3 @geetabasra . God bless you all 🙏😇”
This is not the only incident where people mistook someone else Vamika. In another recent incident, pictures of a Virat Kohli lookalike with a kid on his lap went viral. Susobhan Lahiri, a Bengal resident shared pictures with a kid on 4th May and again on 16th November. The kid, who is reportedly his niece, was mistaken for Vamika. Susobhan is now used to people mistaking him for the talented cricketer because of their uncanny resemblance.
During the lockdown, Virat and Anushka spent a lot of time with their daughter. Anushka last acted in Zero in 2018 along with Shah Rukh Khan before she went on a sabbatical. Her upcoming projects include Jhulan Goswami Biopic and Kaneda which will release in 2022. She will also produce Qala which will mark the debut of Irrfan Khan’s son Babil.
