Reports: Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh only cricketers invited in Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma’s wedding

Posted On / /

Team India captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma are one of the most talked about couples of tinsel town and Virushka fans cannot wait to see the duo get hitched.

According to speculations doing rounds of the internet, it is being said that Virat and Anushka plan to tie the knot on December 12 in Italy.

Apparently, a few residents of the society where the Sharma’s reside, have received wedding invitations for the ceremony that will reportedly be held in Italy. Anushka’s father Ajay Kumar Sharma has apparently been personally calling them and inviting them to attend the ceremony and bless his daughter.

While Kohli’s teammates will be busy playing ODIs and T20Is against Sri Lanka, only Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh have been invited for the wedding ceremony. Apart from them, Kohli’s coach Rajkumar Sharma and two of Kohli’s Delhi friends have been invited.

The event will be kept low-key, with invitees being both the families and their closest friends.

“Not many people have been invited, as it is a really small function. Just close ones are invited, Virat’s childhood friends and few of our family members. From cricket fraternity, only Sachin and Yuvraj will be seen, if they make it to the wedding. And of course, Virat’s coach Rajkumar Sharma who once taught him. There were others too but they can’t make it for the day,” a source close to Kohli was quoted as saying by MensXP.

“Everything was decided almost 3-4 months ago. The priest picked up the December wedding and they wanted to keep it low key. Both the families sat together and laid down the plan of how they want to do it,” he added.

Anushka Sharma was spotted at the Mumbai Airport, leaving for Italy with her family. From Delhi, Kohli and his family members were also seen departing for the venue. Also, Anushka’s family guru, Maharaj Anant Baba is learnt to be in Italy for the grand occasion.

“The invitations have gone out to close friends and family. Only a few of Virat’s friends from Delhi have been invited — one is his childhood buddy, who used to play league cricket with him, and the other, who has been advising him on his fitness,” a source revealed to Bombay Times.

While another confirmed, “The couple has booked a SoBo five-star hotel for their reception on December 21 in Mumbai.”

The Mumbai reception will be held for Sharma’s friends from Bollywood fraternity as well as Kohli’s teammates and friends and is expected to be one of the biggest starstruck events of the year.
