An undesirable controversy erupted in the wee hours of morning. Virat Kohli’s reception outfit is at the centre of it. As it turns out, not one, but two designers initially took credit for the groom’s bandhgala.

The designers in question are Sabyasachi and Raghavendra Rathore.

There has been a lot of confusion since the last few hours about whose outfit is it anyway. The record has finally been set straight by an embarrassed Sabyasachi.

As soon as Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma arrived for their reception party, Sabyasachi shared a post taking credit for the groom’s velvet indigo navy bandhgala, encrusted with handcrafted vintage gold buttons.

But early in the evening, ace fashion designer Raghavendra Rathore’s team sent out an email taking credit for the stunning bandhgala.

According to Hindustan Times portal, Raghavendra Rathore said via email, “Ace batsman and Indian Cricket Team Captain, Virat Kohli, was seen donning a classic Raghavendra Rathore bandhgala at his celebrity-studded reception in Mumbai on Tuesday evening. Looking stately in an opulent Navy Blue bandhgala, teamed up with white Jodhpur Breeches, a pink pocket square and leather, brown shoes to complete the attire.”   

However, as soon as Sabyasachi realised the error, he took down the post.

And minutes after deleting the post, his team shared another another one, lauding Virat’s “dapper” look in Ragavendra Rathore’s outfit. It said, “BTW @virat.kohli looks absolutely dapper in a @raghavendra.rathore.We had made a very similar piece and in the confusion of the great Indian wedding the credits got swapped. Mr. Mukherjee is personally a huge fan of the Rathore label and deeply regrets the error.”

All’s well that ends well. But what a controversy, err confusion!
