Last year, 2018, was the years of weddings in Bollywood. And one of the most talked-about weddings was Virushka‘s. Till the time Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli tied the knot, they made sure to maintain the confidentiality around it.
The Indian cricket team captain now revealed that it was Anushka‘s plan to keep it a secret. During an interaction with Graham Bensinger, he shared some details about his wedding.
So the plan was all executed by Anushka because I was in the middle of the series. So she (Anushka) figured out the location and everything. And she mentioned it pretty categorically that we have to keep it confidential and there was no other way around it.
“It was in Italy, right?” Graham asked, to which, he said, “Yeah, but even then one of the media guys reached there but wasn’t allowed to enter.”
The cricketer’s close friend (Gagan Gujral), who was also present there, shared that they were also not told about the location. Gagan shared, “It was so confidential he didn’t tell us until we landed in Florence. We landed in Florence and asked the driver ‘Where are we going?’ and he said ‘Am not supposed to tell you that’.”
Graham then asked if only 42 people were present at the wedding and Virat nodded and said that it was very private. In fact, it was there at that time they announced it to their friends and then everyone knew and there was a frenzy.
There was top security and people had to get in with their cards or they couldn’t enter. So proper top-level stuff. And then we came to Bombay to do another celebration for her industry friends, my cricketer friends. So across two celebrations, after they ended, the next day our families said ‘We are so glad you did it in Italy’. That’s when we said imagine if the main thing had happened in India. It would have been madness. They (family) couldn’t handle two celebrations parties. That’s when they realised ‘Ok, what they did was the right thing.’
We just love Virushka!
