— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) December 30, 2016. Indian media has started airing rumours that the two lovebirds had exchanged rings and would be getting hitched soon. The rumours were fueled by the fact that the couple had visited an ashram in Haridwar together, on Wednesday. A picture of the two with their guru started doing the rounds, which added fuel to fire to the speculation that Kohli and Anushka had gotten engaged. Media reports had claimed well over a year ago that the couple had broken up. However, Kohli and Anushka have mended forces and are back together. The two are seen together in almost all red carpet events in India that they attend. They have often been the talk of the town for their on and off relationship.
