Virat Kohli has been rested for upcoming ODI series against Sri Lanka giving the gossip mills a chance to make exaggerated claims. One such rumour took the social media by storm on Wednesday evening when reports came out that the adorable duo is tying the knot in Italy in December sending Twitter into frenzy. Twitterati finally calmed down when Anushka Sharma’s spokesperson rubbished all the rumours of a destination wedding. “There is absolutely no truth to it (rumours of marriage),” Anushka’s spokesperson was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

Earlier, reports had surfaced that Anushka Sharma has already left for Italy for the wedding which will take place somewhere between 9-12 December. The media reports even claimed that no Indian cricketer has been invited to the wedding yet and that they will join the couple for celebration during a reception ceremony. Within minutes #Virushka started trending on social network Twitter with people posting like maniacs. Take a look at some of the posts here:
