Almost at the same time, Virat and Anushka both took to Twitter to confirm the news of their wedding.

'#VirushkaWEDDING' quickly became the top trend on Twitter with celebrities and fans swarming to Twitter to wish the couple.

Ever since Anushka and her family were spotted last week at the Mumbai international airport leaving for an unknown destination, rumour mills have been going tizzy with the news of the two stars tying the knot.

Kohli and Anushka, both 29, started dating in 2013 after they met during the filming of a shampoo advert.

The high-profile couple made their first public appearance a year later during a football match.

Kohli is one of the world's highest-paid athletes and a huge star in cricket-crazy India, and Anushka is one of the top actresses in the multi-billion-dollar Indian film industry.

Kohli and Anushka are now the latest entrant in a long list of Bollywood-cricket weddings.

From former India captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi and actress Sharmila Tagore to the recent Zaheer Khan-Sagarika Ghatge union, India has a long history of marriages between cricket players and movie stars.
