Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are not only the most adorable couples in the industry, but also often dish out couple goals on social media. The actress and Indian cricketer who tied the knot in 2017 after dating for a few years got married in Tuscany, Italy in a ceremony so confidential that few could have managed to pull it off.
But in a latest interview, the Indian cricket team’s captain Virat got candid and spilled a few details about their super private-yet-breathtaking wedding. Speaking to Graham Bensinger, Virat revealed that the entire wedding planning was done by his wife Anushka as he was busy with his series at the time.
Virat Kohli said, “So the plan was all executed by Anushka because I was in the middle of the series. So, she (Anushka) figured out the location and everything and she mentioned in pretty categorically that we have to keep it confidential and there was no other way around it.” Graham chimed in and asked, ” It was in Italy, right?”
The skipper replied, “Yeah, but even then one of the media guys I think reached there but wasn’t allowed to enter.” At this point, Virat’s close friend, in the background, revealed that the location was a top secret. He said, “It was so confidential he didn’t tell us until we landed in Florence. We landed in Florence and asked the driver ‘Where are we going?’ and he said ‘Am not supposed to tell you’.”
Graham went on to ask that whether there were only 42 people at the wedding. Virat said, “Yes, wedding was very private. We announced it to our friends and there was a frenzy. There was top security and people had to get in with their cards or you couldn’t enter. So proper top level stuff and then we came to Bombay to do another celebration for her industry friends, my cricketer friends.
Virat further added, “So across two celebrations after they ended, the next day our families said ‘We are so glad you did it in Italy’. Imagine if the main thing had happened in India.”
Virat and Anushka were in West Indies as team India whitewashed the series against the Caribbean team.
