- Anushka and Virat got married in Italy
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli married in Italy last week, after having managed to (almost) keep the wedding secret for a year.
Anushka and her family were photographed flying out of Mumbai days before the wedding. They were headed to Italy where a heritage resort in Tuscany had been booked for the nuptials. Pre-wedding ceremonies included a mehendi and haldi. No celebrities were invited.
The newlyweds made the wedding announcement on their Twitter accounts with an identical message: "Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you. This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans & well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey."
Anushka and Virat also posted a honeymoon picture from somewhere snowy in Europe last week.
On Tuesday, pictures of the couple in New Delhi went viral. They had flown back without the press being alerted.
After the Mumbai reception, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli will fly to South Africa to ring in 2018. Virat will stay on to play a series, Anushka will return to resume work on her pending films, one of which co-stars Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
