Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma set to marry in Italy in December: report
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are set to marry this month and are reportedly planning a wedding bash in Italy, Indian media reported.
Indian news channel India Today reported that the Indian cricket team skipper and the Bollywood actress will head to Italy for their marriage, which will take place in between December 9-11.
However, a representative of Anushka denied the news and said no date has been confirmed yet.
The marriage rumours have been further fuelled by Virat Kohli taking a break from international cricket, and has been offered a rest for the limited-over series against Sri Lanka starting December 10.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have been dating each other since 2013 after meeting during the shoot of a television commercial.
Anushka has been seen attending India and Royal Challengers Bangalore games in recent years. She was often been seen travelling to New Zealand and Australia during the 2015 World Cup.
Virat has himself been spotted in the past in Anushka’s shoots, most notably for Bombay Velvet in Sri Lanka and PK in Udaipur.
The relationship often made headlines with rumours of a split in the middle of 2015, while they were evenually reunited in early 2016 after Kohli hit back at trolls targeting Anushka over his batting form.
Kohli has spoke highly of her during a recent interview in a web series saying it was Anushka who motivated him during difficult periods.
“Anushka has taught me a lot over the last four years including how to be poised and how to utilise my position. She motivated me during my difficult phase when I wasn’t in the best form. And later, I ended up scoring runs. So it was a special thing for both of us,” he had said.
Both were recently seen in a TV commercial for a second time, this time for a bridal clothing brand.
Although Virat and Anushka have often been spotted together in public, it wasn’t until Valentine’s Day earlier this year, that he publicly acknowledged the relationship.
