Anushka Sharma shared a new picture of his daughter vamika On the occasion of Durga Ashtami. The actress who welcomed her daughter with Indian cricketer Virat Kohli is named Vamika, a Sanskrit name for Goddess Durga.
Anushka shared a picture of Vamika on Instagram without revealing her face. It seemed that the girl was biting on Anushka’s nose while the actor was photographed laughing. Sharing the picture, Anushka said, “Make me bolder and more courageous every day. May my little Vamika Happy Ashtami always have the power of the Goddess in you.”
Anushka and Virat have deliberately kept Vamika’s identity a secret. In May, during an Ask Me Anything session, Virat was asked to share a glimpse of Vamika’s face.
A fan asked, ‘What is the meaning of Vamika? how is she? Can we please catch a glimpse of her?” The cricketer replied, “Vamika is another name for Goddess Durga. No, we as a couple have decided not to expose our child on social media, before that. He can understand social media and make his choice.”
While speaking with Vogue India last December, Anushka had said, “We have thought about it a lot. We certainly don’t want to raise a child in the public eye – we don’t plan on engaging our child in social media. I think this is a decision your child should be able to make. No child should be made more special than another. It’s hard enough for adults to deal with. It’s going to be difficult, but we intend to follow through.”
Anushka had spent three months with Virat when the cricketer was playing in England. During their off days, Virat and Anushka explored the UK countryside and also shared pictures. He also celebrated Vamika’s six-month birthday during her stay.
