Recently, Anushka Sharma had been sharing with her fans all her cheat meals she had been having. The actress had been eating some lip-smacking food and a day ago, she enjoyed a lavish Sindhi meal and shared a glimpse of it on social media.
On Sunday afternoon, the actress shared an Instagram story with an elaborate platter spread on the dining table. “Thank you for this ultimate Sindhi brunch!” she wrote over the photo.
Virat and Anushka tied the knot on December 11, 2017. The couple had a destination wedding in Italy.
