Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli began their clandestine relationship in 2013 and finally tied the knot in 2017. They neither denied being in love nor publicly accepted, all that happened was some moments of togetherness. November 5 is indeed a special day for both Kohli and Anushka, and also all of the captain's fans as he celebrates his birthday, and today, he turns 31.

The couple is currently in Bhutan for a trip that has actually turned out to be a life-changing experience for both husband and wife. Transcending froth and mirth, this was one holiday that seared straight into the heart and was filled with spirituality. And that could be sensed from the fact that Sharma wished her hubby on Instagram, not against the backdrop of graffiti but multiple Diyas that only signified how the man brightens up her life. She called him her blessing, her confidante and her friend and of course, true love.

Take a look at this wonderful birthday wish, which is unlike you'll see in recent times. In the days of larger-than-life celebrations, laced with tons of cakes and face smeared with cream, this was one celebration that was filled with tranquility:

Sharma is a fine actor and a workaholic, but akin to any normal working individual, she too, took a break from her work to focus on her personal life and family. She was last seen in Zero in 2018, and ever since then, she has been active on social media. But after a year, she's back to dazzle with some searing performances. She's all set to collaborate with Farah Khan for the remake of Satte Pe Satta, all we are waiting for is an official confirmation.

Kohli, on the other hand, continues to make India proud by creating history, demolishing records and making some of his own. Given how much they both have achieved despite being outsiders, the two of them are truly a power couple.
