'Virushka' (as Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are lovingly called) fans were cheering when stories of a big fat Italian wedding for the couple next week began doing the rounds.
But if Anushka's spokesperson is to be believed, the speculation is baseless. "There is absolutely no truth to it," Anushka's spokesperson told PTI.
Rumours of a December wedding for Virat and Anushka first began doing the rounds when the cricketer opted out of the Test match and the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka in December citing 'personal reasons'. However, the talent agency which manages Anushka had refuted the reports.
Sources told India Today Television that Virat and Anushka are definitely going to take their relationship to the next level. Virat's close friends and family have already booked their tickets to Milan, according to sources. Not just this, his childhood coach, Rajkumar Sharma, who is also the coach of the Under-23 Delhi team, has excused himself from a crucial match on December 7, citing a wedding. When asked whose wedding he was attending, he said that his 'nephew' was getting married.
Meanwhile, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee was spotted exiting Anushka's house last week, leading to speculation that he might design her wedding trousseau.
Sparks flew between Virat and Anushka during the shooting of a shampoo commercial in 2013. Since then, the couple have been making us fall in love with their oh-so-adorable displays of affection.
Incidentally, Anushka Sharma confessed to India Today last year that marriage is on her agenda, "Obviously marriage is on the cards, but when, that I'm not sure of."
