Recently, in an interview with Vogue, Anushka opened up about their child's upbringin and revealed that they do not want to raise a child in the public eye. She said, "We don’t plan on engaging our child in social media. I think it’s a decision your child should be able to take. No kid should be made to be more special than the other. It’s hard enough for adults to deal with it. It’s going to be difficult, but we intend to follow through."
She even spoke about the food cravings and said, "I was eating only toast and crackers for the first three months. So, when it ended, I wanted to eat vada pao and bhel puri, but that didn’t last long either. So, no real cravings."
On the work front, Kohli was allowed a paternity leave by the BCCI to be with his wife for the birth of their first child. While for Anushka, she was last seen in Aanand L Rai's 'Zero' which also starred Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif in leading roles.
