Indian Test team captain Virat Kohli and his girlfriend, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, were caught on camera at the Dehradun airport, on their way back from their Christmas and New Year holiday in the mountains of Uttarakhand.
Pictures were clicked by excited fans who posted them on social media.
Their vacation had become a hot topic of discussion. There were also rumours that Virat and Anushka were getting engaged on January 1, spurred by a picture they had taken with a priest, added to the presence of the couples' parents there.
However, Kohli scotched all such rumours, tweeting, "We aren't getting engaged and if we were going to, we wouldn't hide it. Simple.."
Anushka subsequently retweeted Virat's tweet to put all rumours to rest.
