A far cry from the vibrant red that she chose for her turn at the capital, Sharma glittered in a muted gold Sabyasachi lehenga and was all smiles as she draped her arms around hubby Kohli. The captain of the Indian cricket team looked dapper in black with a hint of pink, as he matched Sharma's steps for a photo-op session that breached the 8.30 pm deadline.

However, like the Delhi reception, the couple hit the dance floor in St Regis and unleashed their true inner Punjabi by performing Bhangra.
