“Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli got married at a private ceremony in Italy, today. The wedding was attended by close family and a few friends as they wished their wedding to be a very private affair,” spokesperson of Kohli and Anushka said.
The spokesperson further revealed that the couple will be hosting a reception in New Delhi for their relatives on 21st December which will be followed by a reception for industry friends and cricketers in Mumbai on 26th December.
The newly-wed couple will travel to South Africa where Virat will start prepping for upcoming series and Anushka will spend New Year’s Eve with him and return in first week of January to begin next schedule of a film with Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai.
Rumours started swirling when Kohli pulled out of India’s limited-overs matches against Sri Lanka and Sharma also ducked out of her busy acting schedule in December.
The celebrity couple and their families have flown out of India for the week-long celebrations.
The Indian captain has said he needed to rest because of his “massive workload”, ahead of the national side’s tour of South Africa in January.
Kohli and Sharma, both 29, started dating in 2013 after they met during the filming of a shampoo advert.
The high-profile couple made their first public appearance a year later during a football match.
