For the caption, Anushka wrote, “Don’t bring work home isn’t going to be applicable for Virat for sometime. #QuarantineAtTheStadium.”
Meanwhile, Virat and Anushka started a fundraiser campaign on May 7 for COVID relief. The couple collaborated with crowd-funding platform Ketto for the campaign #InThisTogether and donated Rs 2 crore towards the initiative. They had aimed to raise Rs 7 crore for Covid relief in India
A week later, Anushka informed that the fundraiser surpassed its target, raising Rs 11,39,11,820. Sharing a note on Instagram she wrote: “Thanks to all we have surpassed our target! Funds raised for Covid Relief. Rs 11,39,11,820. #inthistogether.”
“Truly amazed and humbled by the spirit of solidarity that you all have shown. We are proud to announce that we have raised more than our initial target and it will go a long way to save lives,” she added.
“Thank you for your overwhelming support in helping the people of India. This wouldn’t be possible without you. Jai Hind. #InThisTogether #ActNow #OxygenForEveryone #TogetherWeCan #SocialForGood,” Anushka further stated.
