Anushka Sharma's reception saree is something we already saw on Deepika Padukone
Actress Anushka Sharma's traditional Benarasi saree that she wore for her wedding reception reminded us of the saree worn by Deepika Padukone
Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and cricketer Virat Kohli tied the knot secretly on December 11, in Italy and hosted a grand wedding reception in Delhi on December 21, ready to meet their friends and well-wishers from their respective industries. The reception ceremony of Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress-producer Anushka Sharma at Hotel Taj Palace's Raja Baugh area was more of a traditional affair with a select few including Prime Minister Narendra Modi among the invitees.

The couple was expected to appear for the event at 8 pm but they turned up at a little late. With a neatly-tied bun encircled in a mogra gajra, Anushka wore a traditional red and gold saree designed by Sabyasachi with a heavy palla and jadau jewellery; chuda and sindoor in place. Virat appeared dapper in a black achkan and white churidaar and heavily embroidered shawl with golden border in black mojris. Virat helped Anushka on the stage as they posed for the shutterbugs as fans flanked the streets for the two.
However, what caught our attention was Anushka's saree, it struck a similar resemblance to one of the earlier outfits worn by actress Deepika Padukone. Sabyasachi's designs on Anushka offered nothing fresh.

The new bride's wedding lehenga and earrings were similar to Deepika's saree and earrings that she wore to one of the awards function. Anushka, however, looked breathtakingly beautiful on both of her special days.
