Their pictures have been flooding the internet and netizens can’t stop gushing over them. However, an MLA from the ruling party of India went on record and called Virat unpatriotic for getting married out of India.
Speaking to a popular news channel, the MLA said “Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Vikramaditya, Yudhishthir got married on this land. You all must have got married here. None of us goes to a foreign country to get married … (Kohli) earned money here and spent billions there (Italy)… (he) doesn’t have any respect for the country. This proves he is not a patriot.”
While on the one hand, people are taking offense at the choice of location, on the other hand, a majority of the population is celebrating the most awaited wedding of 2017.
