As IANS reported earlier, the photograph made her husband Virat go weak in the knees. He commented with red-heart and heart eyes emojis on the Anushka's image, from her beach outing in West Indies.
Netizens, however, gave mixed reactions to the image. A section of social media users turned the photograph into memes and trolls.
From making comparisons to VLC media player (for the orange-white colour scheme) to placing the picture near traffic cones (again, identified with an orange-white colour scheme), Anushka's bikini photograph has become fodder for instant jokes on social media.
