Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are back in Delhi and ready to throw a grand reception party for their friends and family. The newly wed couple will host several A-list guests, including politicians, cricketers and actors, on Thursday at Taj Diplomatic Enclave.
The cricketer and the actor tied the knot in a secret wedding ceremony in Tuscany, Italy on December 11. The wedding was the best kept secret of the country, till the day when Anushka and her family were photographed leaving for Italy at the Mumbai airport. The wedding outfits were designed by Sabyasachi, who also posted some of the first photos of the couple from the wedding.
Anushka and Virat also shared the happy news with their fans on the same day through Twitter and Instagram. “Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you. This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans & well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey,” they wrote in the posts.
The two then went for a honeymoon in Rome and the icy Finland. They were in Rovaniemi, on the Arctic Circle, which is also official home town of Santa Claus.
They’ve finally returned to Delhi for a first reception on Thursday and then again on Tuesday in Mumbai. Here’s what we know and expect about the event:
The reception will be at Durbar Hall at Taj Diplomatic Enclave in New Delhi. The card mentions the event will start at 8.30 pm.

Because a separate reception has been scheduled for Tuesday in Mumbai, it is unlikely that any film star will be seen at the Delhi reception. However, cricketers who live near Delhi, politicians and Virat and Anushka’s family members will be invited.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, finance minister Arun Jaitley, BCCI president CK Khanna and cricketers Kapil Dev, Yuvraj Singh, Ashish Nehra are expected at the reception.
Because Sabyasachi designed all dresses for the wedding, engagement and haldi, it is only to be expected that Anushka will again go with the talented designer for the reception.
Anushka and Virat had hired Joseph Radhik for the wedding in Italy, we are expecting his team to cover the reception as well. So if you are hunting for the first pictures later tonight, this is the page where you should lurk:
An honor and a privilege. To be here. To be a part of this occasion. To be trusted with this job. To be here with the woman I love (@naraindevika you made one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever seen!) and with the friends I share this passion with (@shivalichopra, @noeldavidraj and @theweddingfilmer, @shaadisquad). But most importantly, to work with people who make our job look so easy. These two will be among the most fun and in love couples I've ever photographed and this wedding was a surreal combination of luxury, simplicity, intimacy, and love. So much of it. I have so much to say, but I have to go shoot the last event now. Thank you, my Instagram family for all the love. Big hugs. #chasinglight #travel #sonyalpha #travelgram #ohtheplacesiveseen #weddedwonderland #wedphotoinspiration #instalove #instawedding #love #bride #indianbride #bigfatindianwedding
The Mumbai wedding reception will be attended by the entire Indian cricket team. They will be later flying out on December 27, to South Africa, for an upcoming series.
Anushka will accompany Virat on the South Africa tour. The couple will ring in the New Year together and Anushka will return to work on the Aanand L Rai film with Shah Rukh Khan. She will also be promoting her home production, Pari, that stars her as well.
