Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli and wife, actor Anushka Sharma finally turned mom and dad. They were blessed with a baby girl on Monday afternoon. Virat took to his social media handle to inform fans and well-wishers about the same. After the birth of their baby girl, the celebrity couple sent a luxury gift hamper to the paparazzi, requesting privacy for the little princess. They requested the paparazzi that no pictures must be clicked of their newborn daughter. Now, here’s a sneak-peek into the goodies basket.
The unboxing video shared on Instagram showed the contents of the hamper. The hamper basket looked massive and had a yellow coloured note attached to it. Speaking of the contents, the luxury gift hamper included some mithai, chocolates and dry fruits. From the video, one could notice a box of mithai from a sweet shop in Mumbai, flavoured dry fruits, some dark chocolate bars, a scented candle, all attached with the note from the new mom and dad.
The note sent by Virat and Anushka, to the paparazzi read, “Hi, Thank you for all the love that you have given us for all these years. We are happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with you. As parents, we have a simple request to make to you. We want to protect the privacy of our child and we need your help and support." While the couple requested the paparazzi to co-operate and help them protect the privacy of their child, they also ensured to accommodate the shutterbugs with all the content they need featuring the couple. The note further read, “While we will always ensure that you get all the content you need featuring us, we would request you to kindly not take or carry any content that has our child. We know that you will understand where we are coming from and we thank you for the same.”
Reacting to the post, actor Raveena Tandon also commented and mentioned that she agrees with the sentiment. She then lauded the photographers for always respecting people’s wishes and shared an incident of hers too. Tandon told the paparazzi, “You guys would always keep my request too when I didn’t want you all to click my children’s pics when they were younger, and I take this opportunity to thank you for being kind enough."
