The marriage of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma took the nation by storm. Apologies for the cliché statement, but it did. Not sure why, but people were deeply interested in every bit of detail about the wedding – before the wedding, after, during and what not. Well, we deeply admire Virat Kohli for being a sensational cricketer that he is and Anushka Sharma for climbing great heights in Bollywood. But as motoring journos, our interest rests with the cars they own and what's better is that Kohli happens to be a motoring enthusiast. Hence, here's a list of all the cars that the power couple owns: (Image: bottom right: cartoq)
