Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli took a lot of preventive measures to keep their wedding in Tuscany hidden from the public eye. 

As the actress continues to do good business in lieu of her films at the box office and is seen happy both professionally and personally, she revealed in a new magazine interview that they kept pseudo-names while speaking to the wedding organisers and others, so as to keep it from coming out in the open. 

She also spoke about her current state of affairs and told Vogue: “I’m in this space where I feel very peaceful, comfortable, self-assured and, I guess, really in touch with myself 100%. It’s something I’ve been working towards since the very beginning. All the decisions I’ve taken leading up to now have always been keeping that in mind. I base my decisions on what makes me more peaceful, and nothing else. If something makes me anxious and uncomfortable, I won’t do it, even if it’s something that I know I must do.”

On her wedding, she said, “We wanted to have a home-style wedding. There were only 42 people there, with all our friends and family present. I wanted it to be about Virat and me marrying each other, and not this big celebrity wedding. The energy at our wedding was blessed.”

On the pseudo-name that Virat adopted at the time of their wedding, Anushka said: “I think Virat’s was Rahul.”
