Shah Rukh Khan did a “Chaiya Chaiya”, Ranbir was seen using sign language, and Bhajji-Yuvi slayed at bhangra at the Virushka reception. Who was the coolest guest at the party?
India’s first couple and owners of the most bastardised hashtag in the history of Indian popular culture, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, held their wedding reception in Mumbai yesterday. This was approximately the 21315th time they’ve trended in a week, this time because the wedding was a “star-studded” affair, with anyone who has ever been famous being invited for photo-ops.
Let’s take a look at how the evening went for all the invitees.

As this completely real sequence of tweets shows, Ranbir was practising singing “Channa Mereya” in a corner, when Anushka asked him to come over, and make a heart sign with Virat. This was your daily reminder that celebs can be equally uncool as the rest of us.
Shah Rukh Khan
If there is one thing we know deep in our hearts, even though we are scared to admit it, it is that Shah Rukh Khan is a cool guy. At the grand Virushka affair, while Sachin was learning how to pose for a picture without a helmet , SRK brought his A-Game. Nay, he was The Game. Shah Rukh sang his Jab Tak Hain Jaan poem to Anushka, did some bhangra with Dailhi boy Virat, and ended his night by making people dance to “Chaiya Chaiya”. Banger.
Not Abhishek Bachchan
I don’t hate Abhishek Bachchan, but it takes a certain amount of talent to light fire to a career where everyone in Bollywood keeps giving you movies because #papa. Abhishek is so gifted in fact at blending into the walls, and elevating others to greatness, that the the dude standing behind him and Ash at the reception became an instant internet legend.

Long live Abhishek.
I’m not the fashion police but as a diehard citizen of Katrinastan, this was a colossal disappointment. Not to judge, but her smile too, is just a little bit narrower than her sister Isabelle’s, and hair a little too out of place for the fashion event of the year.
Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh easily won the night. In a firmament of stars, they were easily the best dressed, slayed at bhangra, and looked drunk AF in this photo. It’s beautiful really. Look. At. Bhajji. And. Virat’s. Eyes. Here.
Moral of the story: Delhi or Mumbai, Punjabis always win at weddings.
