When Salman Khan saved Anushka-Virat relationship

New Delhi, Dec 12: Newly wed Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma may be basking today in the glory of their holy nuptial tie, but there was a time when their relationship was on the verge of collapse. Actually Virat wanted this marriage to happen then and Anushka, riding high on her rising career graph wanted some more time. She was shooting for Salman starer Sultan then. Since the role required lot of preparation she was focusing on the film and it was nearly an end of their relationship.

At this time the big hearted Salman, as he is fondly called by his fans, intervened. He invited the couple to his Galaxy apartment and helped thm patch up.

Before this the things were at such a sorry pass that depressed Virat locked himself at his home with his mother as his only companion.

But all that is a bad dream now and the couple is happily married today.

"This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans and well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey," they said in identical Tweets.

Sharma and Kohli, who were married with Hindu wedding rituals, will host a reception in New Delhi on December 21 followed by another bash in Mumbai for their industry friends and cricketers on December 26.

The celebrity couple, who had been dating for four years, were tight-lipped about their wedding plans despite the hype in the media.

In October, a newspaper reported that an Italian wedding may be on the cards for the couple.

The rumours intensified after Kohli was rested for the remaining ODI series against Sri Lanka.

Sharma and Kohli, both 29, first met on the sets of a commercial.

In a statement by Sharma's representative, the couple said they will shift to their new residence in Worli, Mumbai later this month.

After the reception, the couple will fly to South Africa where Kohli will be prepping for the upcoming series.

The actor will spend the New Year's Eve with her husband before flying back to Mumbai to start the shooting of Aanand L Rai's film with Shah Rukh Khan.
