Rumours that Anushka and Virat, both 29, were already married were prompted a tweet posted by a sports journalist over the weekend. However, conflicting reports on Monday suggested that the wedding was scheduled for later this week and that Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh would attend. A video of what appeared to be wedding preparations at the resort in Tuscany also went viral over the weekend. According to reports, security was massively stepped up at the resort and only people with wedding invites were allowed in. These apparently included a troupe of bhangra dancers.
Last week, the Internet exploded with rumours that Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli had a hush-hush wedding in Italy planned - the actress' spokesperson said there was 'no truth' to the reports and continued to deny the wedding rumours, right up until Anushka Sharma was photographed at Mumbai airport with her parents and brother Karnesh on Thursday night. They were believed to be flying to Italy via Switzerland - the entourage was reported to include a priest.
Celebrities attending an award show in Mumbai last night were peppered with questions about the wedding - most ignored the mediapersons, some disclaimed knowledge, and actress Jacqueline Fernandez appeared to give away more than she should have by breaking into a jig and saying she was 'excited' about the wedding.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have been dating for several years after meeting on the sets of a commercial. They often post messages to each other on social media and are pictured attending social events together.
