Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and actress Anushka Sharma married in Italy on Monday, ending weeks of frenzied speculation. Stars from the world of Bollywood and cricket were quick to congratulate the new husband and wife after they tweeted photos to announce the news of their wedding. Apart from Virat's India teammates, several Pakistani cricketers too took to Twitter to pour in their good wishes. The likes of Shoaib Akhtar and Shahid Afridi, who are known to share a good equation with Virat, congratulated the couple.

The ceremony was performed according to Hindu rituals.

The couple will host a reception in New Delhi for relatives on December 21, followed by a celebration in Mumbai on December 26 to be attended by Bollywood stars and cricketers.

Afterwards, Anushka will accompany Virat to South Africa where he will prepare for India's forthcoming tour there which is taking place early next year.

The statement added that after spending New Year's Eve together Anushka will return to Mumbai in the first week of January to resume her acting commitments.

They will live in Mumbai's Worli, where Kohli had reportedly bought a luxury, sea-view apartment last year.

The pair, dubbed "Virushka" by fans and media, are one of the highest profile couples in the country.

Virat is among the world's highest-paid athletes, and Anushka is one of the top actresses in the film industry.

They started dating in 2013 after they met during the filming of a shampoo advert and made their first public appearance a year later during a football match.

The media has always been gripped by their four-year relationship, which included a reported break-up in early 2016, and rumours of their impending nuptials started swirling recently.

They were triggered when Virat pulled out of India's limited-overs matches against Sri Lanka and Anushka also ducked out of her busy acting schedule in December.

Then last week Anushka and her family were seen at Mumbai's international airport, apparently heading for a European destination.
