December’s the month not only for bells and bobtails ala Christmas, but here in India it’s about the wedding bells too. People are getting hitched one after the other, so why not our celebrities? It’s just a few weeks ago, two cricketers changed their relationship status from dating to married – Zaheer Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
And, now if the millings of the rumour mills are anything to be paid any heed to, Virat Kohli could be next. *deep breaths*
It was yesterday that the news with “sources” citing details about Virat’s wedding with Anushka Sharma hit the stands and fans went like, hold the hell up – Whaattt?!
Since last night, the inter-web snazzed up with a whole bunch of news pieces and of course, reactions about the Virushka wedding. And, we are soaking in all the information like a sponge. It’s time to squeeze (sounds really wrong in my head, but whatev!) and bring you a low-down on all things Virushka wedding.
Rumour No 1: Virat and Anushka are going to sneak away for a three-day wedding (December 9-11). According to India Today report,
“Tentative dates are December 9, 10, 11 and 12. Virat might leave for Italy for the wedding on tomorrow (i.e. December 7).” (sic)
Rumour No 2: The wedding is in Milan, Italy and it will be a private affair. No cricketers are invited for the Italian wedding.
Rumour No 3: Anushka’s bridal look will be designed by none other than Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who has dolled her up on various other occasions.
The fact that paps spotted the designer exiting her house last week has given people more stuff to talk about.
Rumour No 4: According to a Republic TV report, Virat will be applying for wife’s visa for the South Africa tour kick-starting at the end of the month.
It was last week, on Monday, that BCCI issued a statement about Virat sitting out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka, saying,
“Current India captain Mr. Virat Kohli has been rested for the ODI series.”
Rumour No 5: Virat’s childhood coach, Rajkumar Sharma has excused himself from a crucial CK Nayudu U-23 semi-final game, which has added more fuel to the flames. A News 18 report stated that and people are sure something’s cooking.
Oh, and he said, he’s going to a nephew’s wedding.
Rumour No 6: There’s a wedding reception on December 21 in Mumbai for Virushka’s friends and family. The India Today report, that brought the rumours back in vogue, reported the same.
Fact No 1: Anushka’s spokesperson has repudiated the rumours and told the agencies,
“There is absolutely no truth to it (rumours of marriage).”
But, they haven’t issued any official statement yet. So, we’re waiting.
By the way, we’re just refreshing our memories and going back to December of 2016. It was around this time only last year, that the whole state of Uttarakhand was buzzing with news of Virushka’s marriage rumours. Much so, that rumour mills even linked Amitabh Bachchan’s presence in the state to their marriage. (Can you believe that?)
But, what about this time? Umm, we are still real confused about it. But, Tweeple have flipped and have made plans of Virushka’s marriage in their heads, already. And a legit hashtag called #ViratWedsAnushka No kidding!
Finally going to marry in Italy.

Virushka have already said those vows, on reel, and we hope they do that in real life pretty soon, too.
