Mr Kohli and Ms Sharma got married at a private ceremony in Italy  on Monday. Both of them tweeted their wedding photographs, sending the social media in a tizzy.

The ceremony was performed according to Hindu rites. Only close family and a few friends were present at the event, as the couple wanted their wedding to be a private affair.

The newly weds, who were clad in an ensemble designed by top fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, will now start inviting all industry friends and colleagues for a reception that is set to take place in Mumbai on December 26.

The bash will be preceded by a reception in New Delhi for the couple's relatives.

The newly weds will travel to South Africa where Mr Kohli will start preparing for the upcoming series and Ms Sharma will spend New Year's Eve with him and return in the first week of January to begin the next schedule of Anand L Rai's untitled film with Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai. She will also start preparing for Sui Dhaaga, as the shooting for the same starts in February 2018 with Varun Dhawan.

Ms Sharma will also be busy with the marketing and promotions of Pari, which is to release on February 9. Mr Kohli, on the other hand, will be playing the series, which includes three Tests, six One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches, in South Africa for two months.

After their wedding, the couple will be shifting to their new residence in Worli, Mumbai in December once they return from Delhi. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the couple has thanked the media on behalf of the couple saying, "We are extremely grateful to the media for their support and understanding in making this special occasion a memorable one and thank them for their continued love and support."
