Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli tied the knot in Itay today. Family and close friends attended the ceremony at a resort in Tuscany amid high security.
The couple also shared pictures from their wedding ceremony. The actress looked ethereal in a pink lehanga with pearls and beads. Virat, on the other hand, looked handsome in an ivory raw silk sherwani. As soon as the wedding news came in, congratulatory messages started to pour in from B-Town celebs and fans on the social media.
Anushka Sharma’s alleged ex-boyfriend Ranveer Singh liked the pictures of the newly-weds. Anushka and Ranveer were rumoured to be dating each other some years back. However, the relationship did not last for long and the two went their separate ways. The two have been extremely cordial to each other even after their alleged breakup. Both Anushka and Ranveer have worked together in three films- Band Baja Baarat, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl and Dil Dhakadne Do.
Earlier during an interview, when Anushka was about her first meeting with Ranveer, the actress had revealed, "It was during his audition for Band Baaja Baaraat. The team had called me to do a scene with him. And he was just being Ranveer! (laughs). He was hyperactive and restless. If you ask me what was my first impression of him, I would say, ‘Not much’ (laughs)."
Talking about Anushka, Ranveer had said, “I respect Anushka a lot. She is someone who held my hand and guided me through my first film. As I was new and didn’t understand the nuances of film making, Anushka was extremely patient. Anushka is misunderstood as she is not manipulative. She is from an army background- very straight forward and righteous to the core.’’
Talking about Anushka and Virat, the two are expected to return to Mumbai soon. The couple made an official announcement on their social media account by posting, “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.”
The couple will be hosting wedding receptions in Delhi and Mumbai. Virat will be hosting a reception for his extended family on 21st December and Anushka’s family will host a reception in Mumbai on 26th December.
The Mumbai reception will see Anushka’s industry friends and cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh. Anushka has invited all her industry friends including Shah Rukh Khan, AamirKhan and others. Anushka’s father has also invited their neighbors for the reception in Mumbai.
