Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh to attend Kohli-Anushka wedding


Sports Desk

They will be tying the knot in Italy, Florence and Milan to be precise and the celebrations begin from today. Though reports did round of the two taking the plunge, Anushka’s spokesperson denied the reports of her marriage with the Indian skipper, but recent instances suggest otherwise. Kohli asked BCCI to excuse him from the upcoming matches and is on leave in December for personal reasons. Moreover, the Bollywood actress and the Indian captain were spotted on Thursday night at the Mumbai and Delhi airports respectively. Sharma’s family priest was also seen accompanying the leggy lass with her parents and brother. Later it was also reported that invites have been sent to Anushka’s neighbours and they have been asked to be discreet about the wedding. And while some Bollywood bigwigs are expected to witness Virushka’s union, a report on an online portal states that amongst Virat’s boys only Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh might attend the wedding while the others will be on the field playing the upcoming tournament. In fact, a source was also quoted by an online portal saying that “Not many people have been invited, as it is a really small function. Just close ones are invited, Virat’s childhood friends and few of our family members. From cricket fraternity, only Sachin and Yuvraj will be seen, if they make it to the wedding. And of course, Virat’s Coach Rajkumar Sharma who once taught him. There were others too but they can’t make it for the day.” The source also added that “Everything was decided almost 3-4 months ago. The priest picked up the December wedding and they wanted to keep it low key. Both the families sat together and laid down the plan of how they want to do it.” Also, as per Bombay Times reports the invites have gone to a few people who are close to the celebs, a source was quoted in the day saying, “The invitations have gone out to close friends and family. Only a few of Virat’s friends from Delhi have been invited — one is his childhood buddy, who used to play league cricket with him, and the other, who has been advising him on his fitness.” While the couple will have a reception on 21st December in Mumbai, they chose to invite the guest on phone and also requested them to keep the news under wraps. And even though they are keeping the marriage a secret we are super-excited for the couple.
