The skipper of Indian Cricket Team, Virat Kohli might have said that his body needs rest after a long home season as the reason for resting for the upcoming limited overs series against Sri Lanka but if reports are to be believed, Kohli will use down time to tie the knot with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, whom he has been dating for a while.
Reports further added that the wedding is going to take place in the coming weekend with tentative dates being 9, 10 and 11 in Milan, Italy.
However, Anushka’s spokesperson denied the news saying “There is absolutely no truth to it (rumours of marriage).” The denial came after several TV channels reported that the couple was likely to tie the knot.
While the duo have repeatedly denied news of getting married anytime soon, speculations are rife that this high profile wedding may take place as Kohli has asked for the rest before India embark on tough South Africa tour.
Kohli has been very open about his relationship with Anushka, with the duo making public appearances often.
Recently, Kohli also praised Anushka in a chat show ‘Breakfast with Champions’ calling Anushka his lady luck.
The cricketer, in a candid answer, said that “he had no brains before” and ever since “the lady” has come into his life, she’s taught him a lot of things. He added that he’s learnt a lot, and become more sensible in the last 4 years all because of her. She’s taught him how to be more patient and taught him how to utilise the position he is in to the fullest, he further said.
