MNA Culture & Entertainment Desk: Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma have sealed their relationship with a wedding in Florence.

“Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you,” Virat and Anushka posted on their social media accounts after the wedding on Monday.

“This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans and well-wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey,” the statement read.

The wedding was solemnised as per Hindu rituals at 2pm local time, with the bride and groom looking resplendent in ensembles by celebrated couturier Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

The couple, who has been together for four years, is said to have chosen a luxury heritage resort Borgo Finocchieto, a little over 100 km away from here, for their nuptials.

Anushka, the daughter of an army officer, was a model before she made inroads with “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 2008. It set the pace of a career which has seen her be a part of movies like “Band Baaja Baaraat”, “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”, “PK”, “NH10”, “Dil Dhadakne Do”, “Sultan” and “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”. Her last release was “Jab Harry Met Sejal” earlier this year.

Even Virat’s India career started in 2008 in the senior team, after he led the U-19 team to a World Cup win. He has had a glorious run on the cricket pitch ever since.
