At the third attempt, she finally tweeted it correctly i.e. "Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam".|
There was a rift in her relationship with Virat Kohli for a while in early 2016. If reports are to be believed then the reason behind it was that Virat invested a good amount of money in Anushka's film Bombay Velvet, which unfortunately failed at the box office. And, when Virat asked about the money loss to Anushka, she felt upset. Virat even unfollowed her on Twitter and Instagram, but after a few months, they got back together.
