7 Bollywood celebrities who are invited for Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's Italian wedding
While Anushka Sharma's spokesperson has rubbished the rumours of her marriage with Virat Kohli, several instances suggest otherwise. The Bollywood actress and the Indian skipper were spotted last night at the Mumbai and Delhi airports respectively, which has further fuelled the rumours of their marriage. With plenty of occurrences that hint on Anushka and Virat's wedding, we believe that the wedding bells are indeed ringing for the star couple. So who all would be on the guest list of this big fat Italian wedding? Well, we have shortlisted seven celebrities from Bollywood who we think will definitely make it to the grand wedding. Here you go...
Shah Rukh Khan
In any case, Shah Rukh Khan, with his wife Gauri and kids Aryan, Suhana and AbRam, will make it to the wedding. SRK holds a really special place in Anushka's life. After all, it was opposite SRK that Anushka had made her film debut with Rab Ne Bana De Jodi nine years ago. Anushka went on to work with Shah Rukh in Jab Tak Hai Jaan and this year's Jab Harry Met Sejal.
Although Anushka has worked with Aamir Khan in only one film – Rajkumar Hirani-directed Pk, we believe that Mr Perfectionist would be a part of the guest list given the kind of respect Anushka has for him. Also, quite recently, Aamir shot for a special Diwali show with Virat and seemed to share a great camaraderie with the star cricketer. Therefore, there is less likelihood of Aamir not attending the wedding.
How could Aditya Chopra and his family not be a part of the guest list! The director-producer not only helmed Anushka's debut film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi but most of Anushka's films have been produced by him under his film production banner of Yash Raj Films. In fact, the most successful films of Anushka's career have come out of YRF, including Band Baaja Baaraat, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Sultan.
Anushka Sharma doesn't have many friends in the film industry but Ranbir Kapoor is someone she is really close to. The actress shared screen space with the Kapoor lad in Bombay Velvet and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and during the promotions of the latter, she seemed to share a great bond with him. Ranbir is currently shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic in Cape Town but we are sure he would take out time to fly to Italy for his good friend's wedding.
Anushka shares a close bond with director Karan Johar what with their collaboration on romantic drama Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The director-producer had even admitted to have a huge crush on the actress. There was a time when after seeing Anushka's photos, KJo had asked Aditya Chopra to not launch Anushka as he didn't find her good-looking. Now, years later, their equations have dramatically changed and how! We can already imagine Karan pouting for the cameras at Anushka and Virat's wedding.
Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif worked together on the late Yash Chopra's last directorial Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The two have shared a warm equation with each other ever since. Both the actresses, on various ocassions, have sung praises for each other, something which rarely happens in Bollywood. Katrina, we believe, would attend this wedding for sure.
It's been years since they have worked together on a film but there is something special about the bond Anushka and Maneesh share. Maneesh directed the actress in two of the most special films of her career – Band Baaja Baaraat and Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. Maneesh is also the producer of Anushka's upcoming film Sui Dhaaga, which will see her opposite Varun Dhawan.
