After scoring a scintillating double ton, India captain Virat Kohli along with his girlfriend Anushka Sharma joined Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge in their wedding celebrations.

Kohli can be seen grooving on the dance floor with Anushka and the married couple.

Other sports stars in attendance at the gathering were Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Sania Mirza, Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Ajit Agarkar.

Kohli joined in the celebrations after India defeated Sri Lanka in the 2nd Test at Nagpur.

Kohli was at his aggressive best in the just-concluded second Test against Sri Lanka as he smashed a strokeful 213 off 267 balls to help India amass a huge first innings total. Kohli's knock and centuries from Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma ensured that India had ample time in their hands to bowl Sri Lanka out for a massive innings and 239 runs win in the just-concluded Test here.

"I just wanted to bat the way I bat. Get into good positions and rotate strike and score quickly so our bowlers have time to bowl the opposition out," Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony today.

"We will need that (approach) overseas so I was looking at doing that.

"I always wanted to better myself in scoring big hundreds for the simple reason that the team benefits. When you lose concentration after a hundred, maybe two wickets can fall quickly. A set batsman can play shots easier than a new batsman so I started thinking in that way and my fitness helps me bat for longer periods," he added.
