Cricketer Gautam Gambhir has come out in support of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's choice of wedding destination. 

"It's absolutely ridiculous, it's a personal choice," Gambhir said.

"Anyone questioning this is doing for publicity," he added.

Virat and Anushka got married recently in Tuscany, Italy. 

The only thing that marred the celebration was a Madhya Pradesh BJP MLA's comment that getting married outside of the country was not very patriotic of them. 

That was followed by BJP leader from Anantnag, Kashmir, Rafiq Wani, questioning the couple's honeymoon destination choice. 

Wani reportedly said there were a number of beautiful honeymoon destinations in India itself. 

News reports quoted Wani as recommending Kashmir itself.
