Rumours of Virat Kohli, one of India's most eligible bachelors, tying the knot with Bollywood's sweetheart Anushka Sharma have turned out to be true!
Anushka left for Italy from Mumbai on Thursday night with her family. Sources reveal that the wedding celebrations will be held in Florence and Milan between December 9 and 12.
A source close to the families revealed to BT, "The invitations have gone out to close friends and family. Only a few of Virat's friends from Delhi have been invited — one is his childhood buddy, who used to play league cricket with him, and the other, who has been advising him on his fitness."
Virat has taken a break and he won't be a part of the T20 or ODIs against Sri Lanka. However, he will lead Team India in the South Africa series and will leave for SA on December 27. The cricketer has apparently even requested not to be disturbed during his break.
According to a film industry insider, Anushka had also, much in advance, requested a filmmaker to not schedule her shoot for her upcoming project during December.
Another source revealed, "The couple has booked a SoBo five-star hotel for their reception on December 21 in Mumbai."
Virat's manager Bunty Sajdeh, who is usually quick to dismiss such rumours, has been tight-lipped this time around. There was no response from him despite our repeated attempts till the time of going to press.
Anushka's spokesperson denied the news to us even after the actress left for Italy, saying, "It is not true."
Meanwhile, sources said that Anushka's family guru, Maharaj Anant Baba, too, is in Italy for the wedding."
