The wedding, held amid tight security, was strictly family and close friends. Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee created the wedding outfits for both bride and groom as well as Anushka’s mehendi ensemble. Two receptions will follow – the first in Virat’s hometown of Delhi, the second in Mumbai. The couple will also live in Mumbai, in an apartment in Worli. After the second reception on December 26, Anushka and Virat will fly to South Africa to ring in 2018. Virat stays on to play a series there, meanwhile, Anushka returns to resume work on her film with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
Anushka Sharma’s spokesperson denied wedding rumours all of last week, right up until the actress flew out of Mumbai with her parents and brother. A statement released on behalf of the actress after the wedding read: “We are extremely grateful to the media for their support and understanding in making this special occasion a memorable one and thank them for their continued love and support.”
Anushka and Virat met while filming a commercial in 2013. They confirmed a romance later, saying that they were ‘two young people in a relationship.’ Anushka and Virat were rumoured to have broken-up last year after the cricketer posted a photo of himself captioned ‘Heartbroken.’ The late reconciliation and pictures at parties and events together is an inspiration indeed. Pictures of the couple at a temple in Uttarakhand surely went viral in November 2016, prompting speculation of an engagement.
Anushka Sharma’s last movie was opposite Shah Rukh Khan in JHMS. Apart from the project with SRK and Katrina, her upcoming films include Sui Dhaaga and Pari.
