Speculations are rife regarding Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s engagement. The couple is currently vacationing in Uttarakhand where Virat is the face of the state as its brand ambassador. The rumours in the media state that the couple has decided to tie the knot soon and the engagement is happening tonight itself. So much is the buzz that even Amitabh Bachchan and the Ambanis’ entry in Uttarakhand has been deemed as the proof of their engagement.
Isn’t it the time to leave these stars alone? Where is the line to be drawn while reporting about the personal lives of the stars? Isn’t it possible that the two are just spending quality time together amid their hectic work schedule? Isn’t it possible that the Bachchans and the Ambanis have their own work in the state and it’s just a coincidence that their respective presence has collided?
And what if they are actually getting engaged? It is their personal matter. They can choose to or not to make it a public announcement. Virat and Anushka have never guarded their relationship. They have always maintained that they are not hiding anything but they will never talk about their relationship as well. Because that is the space they have decided to live in. They never shy away from holding their hands in public, neither do they escape from posing in front of the shutterbugs. But, is it necessary for them to announce every minute development in their relationship?
Engaged or not engaged, it is important for their fans and well wishers to realise that these stars also need their personal space. Space where they are happy to live the way they want to. Space which is devoid of any intrusion by the media, fans and other people who think they have all the rights to know about them.
Let them be, fans. Let them be, please.
