Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma left for Switzerland in the intervening night of Thursday-Friday, as speculation about a possible 'Virushka' wedding in Italy reached fever pitch.
Anushka boarder her Swiss Airways flight in Mumbai, and her beau Virat left from Delhi. The India captain reached Delhi airport at around 11.30 pm, and his flight took off at 2.45 am.
India Today has learned that Virat was wearing a jacket, and had covered half of his face with a hood. So that made it difficult for people at the airport to recognise him.
Virat refused to let security personnel take a picture with him.
There's no official confirmation from the couple yet - but if reports are to be believed, the Virat-Anushka wedding is all set to happen this weekend in Italy.
The presence of Anushka's family at Mumbai airport on Thursday further fueled speculation of an impending shaadi. Her father Ajay Kumar, mother Ashima and elder brother Karnesh all left from the airport.
They didn't answer any questions.
Meanwhile, sources say Virat Kohli's family and close friends have already booked their tickets to the Italian city of Milan. What's more, his former coach Rajkumar Sharma excused himself from a crucial match on December 7
The reason? A wedding.
Whose wedding? His 'nephew's', he said.
A spokesperson for Anushka refuted reports about a possible wedding, and said the speculation is baseless.Virat-AnushkaleaveSwitzerland'Virushka'shaadispeculationrages
