After Anushka Sharma and her daughter were captured on live camera at an India vs South Africa match, the actor and her husband Virat Kohli explained that Anushka had been caught off-guard and did not realise the camera was on her and baby Vamika.

Vamika, who turned one recently, was spotted with her mother in the VIP stand watching Virat Kohli and Team India play South Africa in the ongoing series. Vamika’s face was revealed in the shot and screenshots have since gone viral on social media. In one of the pictures, Virat can be seen dedicating his 50 to his daughter.

He scored the 50 in the third and final One Day International of the three-match ODI series between India National Cricket Team and South Africa National Cricket Team at the Newlands, Cape Town on Sunda, which they ultimately lost.


In an Instagram story, Anushka clarified that she didn’t mean to allow Vamika to be filmed, repeating her request that photos of her daughter not be taken or shared. She wrote: “We realise that our daughter’s images were captured at the stadium yesterday and widely shared thereafter. We want to inform everyone that we were caught off-guard and didn’t know that the camera was on us. Our stance and request on the matter stays the same. We would really appreciate if Vamika’s images are not clicked/published for reasons we have explained earlier.”
