Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli are now officially married. One of India’s most loved couples has tied the knot in a private ceremony as per all Hindi rituals in Milan, Italy. The wedding ceremony took place at the Borgo Finocchieto luxury resort in the presence of close family and friends.
Ever since Anushka left for Italy from Mumbai on Thursday night with her family followed by Virat for the same destination next night, speculations were ripe that they were getting married. But the repeated declination from their spokespersons was creating confusion among their fans. However, both Virat and Anushka also announced their wedding on social media. They wrote:
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. pic.twitter.com/Scobdiqk7l

According to an insider, the couple will be throwing a wedding reception in Mumbai once they return from Italy. They have reportedly booked a SoBo five-star hotel for their reception on December 21.
