Bengaluru, December 7: Virat Kohli might have cited the need for rest after tireless cricket of nearly two years while skipping the ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka.
But the grapevine is that Kohli is all set to tie knot with his long time girlfriend and Bollywood actor - Anushka Sharma. The fans affectionately call the couple - Virushka.
Reports says that the wedding is scheduled at Milan, Italy, in the coming weekend.
That Kohli's childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma excused himself from an age-group game this weekend too has sparked the speculation that the much-anticipated wedding is imminent.
There were talks about their wedding around mid 2016 but both Kohli and Anushka had denied those reports. This time too Anushka's PR wing has denied the talks. "There is absolutely no truth in the news," it said.
However, renowned designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee has been a constant visitor to Anushka's Mumbai residence of late, fueling the speculation that he is designing her wedding costume.
Kohli and Anushka's relatives and close friends are expected to be a part of the wedding, his teammates may not travel to Milan.
The Indian skipper may throw a party in Mumbai before leaving for the high profile tour of South Africa.
Kohli has always been open about his relation with Anushka and recently the Delhiite had called her "my lady luck" in a chat show - Breakfast with Champions.
So, finally will we see the couple sharing the roof?
