Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are all set to tie the knot in Milan in just a few hours, if reports are to be believed, and fans cannot keep calm.

It is not often that you get to see your favourite celebrities get hitched to each other. If Anushka has been winning hearts with her powerful performances on the 70mm screen, Virat has been giving the opposition sleepless nights with his destructive innings on the cricket field.

But did you know that as long back as 2014, Virat had chosen Anushka as his bride? It happened in Abu Dhabi, at a gala dinner held before the opening ceremony of the seventh season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

At the event, Shah Rukh Khan held a mock 'swayamvar' for Virat, who, by then, was already one of the most eligible bachelors in town. From a series of pictures, the cricketer had to choose the woman he'd make his bride. No prizes for guessing that he went on to pick the photgraph of Anushka.

Meanwhile, Virat and Anushka, along with their families, flew off to Italy last night. While Anushka took off from Mumbai along with her parents, brother Karnesh and their family priest, Virat made a hasty exit from the Delhi airport.

Sparks flew between Virat and Anushka during the shooting of a shampoo commercial in 2013. Since then, the couple have been making us fall in love with their oh-so-adorable displays of affection.
