Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma get married in Italy


Indian cricket captain, Virat Kohli, and Bollywood actor, Anushka Sharma, got married in Italy on Monday, said several media reports. The couple is likely to make an announcement soon.

This came after Anushka’s spokesperson has denied media reports of their planned wedding between 11 and 13 December.

“There is absolutely no truth to it (rumours of marriage),” Anushka’s spokesperson had said.

In October, a newspaper had reported that an Italian wedding may be on the cards for the couple. The rumours intensified after Virat was rested for the remaining ODI series against Sri Lanka.

The couple had left India for Milan in Italy last week that further intensified the rumours of their wedding plan. They got married in Borgo Finocchieto resort near Tuscany, about four hours drive from Milan.

“Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you,” Sharma and Kohli said on Twitter, posting pictures of the wedding ceremony.

The bride looked resplendent in a pink Sabyasachi wedding lehenga, while the groom looked dapper in a colour-coordinated sherwani from the same designer.

“This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans and well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey,” they said in identical Tweets.

Sharma and Kohli, who were married with Hindu wedding rituals, will host a reception in New Delhi on December 21 followed by another bash in Mumbai for their industry friends and cricketers on December 26.
