Anushka reveals how she kept her wedding a secret

On December 11, 2017, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's hush-hush wedding in Italy came as a surprise for everyone.

Given their immense popularity, complete privacy for their D-day was certainly not expected, and doing just that was a Herculean task for them.

They went to great lengths to keep their wedding a secret, which also included providing their fake names, said Anushka recently.

Unlike her Bollywood counterparts, Anushka made sure that her wedding with Virat was a private affair and had only 42 guests in attendance.

Apart from the couple's family and close friends, only the wedding planners, her manager and stylist were aware of her wedding in Italy.

"We even used fake names while talking to the caterer; I think Virat's was Rahul," she added.

Virat's fake name was inspired by Shah Rukh Khan's screen-name

Virat's fake name was very filmy and was inspired by Shah Rukh Khan, who happened to be Anushka's first onscreen hero. For the uninitiated, SRK was named as Rahul in eight of his movies including Darr, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Chennai Express, etc.
