The internet is full of pictures, videos and posts about Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s wedding. The lavish affair, that was also one of the most anticipated and awaited events of year has finally concluded in a private yet grand ceremony in Italy.
The rumors of their wedding had been doing rounds in the media for a few months while a great deal of secrecy was maintained about it by the two stars. But it is obvious that there were some people, from the film industry, cricket world, and others who knew about the event very well in advance.
But do you know who was the first person to know about Virushka’s grand Italian wedding? It was none other than famed film producer and Anushka Sharma’s mentor Aditya Chopra.
If a report by Deccan Chronicle is to be believed, it was Aditya Chopra who suggested Italy as the venue to Anushka and Virat for their wedding. And the recommendation is obvious to have come from his personal experience as he too had tied the knot with Rani Mukherjee in Italy back in 2014.
The report also mentions that while not many celebrities from the film and cricket world had their names on the guest list, Aditya and Rani were invited. The daily quotes a source close to Aditya Chopra saying:
It was his idea that Anushka and Virat have their wedding in Italy. He warned them that a desi wedding would turn into a tamasha with paparazzi and gatecrashers.
While the wedding concluded as a hush-hush affair, Virat and Anushka are reportedly planning for two reception ceremonies. One will be held in Delhi on December 21 and the other one in Mumbai on December 26. After all the celebrations, the two will fly to South Africa for their honeymoon.
It is believed that Virat and Anushka were complete strangers to each other before they shared screen in a television commercial for a shampoo brand in 2013. It was only recently that Virat confessed that seeing Anushka off screen was like living a dream for him.
The two started coming close to each other in 2014. The same year, they were spotted together watching Indian Super League matches. Their love story kept on growing steadily and the two finally tied a knot!! It is believed that all this while, Aditya Chopra was Anushka Sharma’s confidant and mentor.
