Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's families have reportedly met each other giving rise to speculations on the couple's impending engagement.

"A reliable source informs us that Virat's family made a casual visit to Anushka's suburban Mumbai penthouse just before the cricketer started preparing the ODI series with West Indies," stated a Pinkvilla report.

Not just that, a friend, close to the couple, revealed that since the two were madly in love with each other, it only made sense for them to take the next step, which is engagement.

The source spilled some more information on the online portal saying, "Anushka and Virat are family oriented. So it was only natural for their families to meet. They might have been in denial about their relationship in public, but their families know they want to be together."

Interestingly, when reports of their marriage plans made headlines a few days ago, Sharma's publicist bluntly denied it saying they were mere conjectures.

"There are several stories online about Anushka Sharma's impending wedding. However, I would like to set the record straight that there is absolutely no truth to these rumours and I would like to request you to refrain from conjecturing about the same," PTI quoted the publicist's statement.

However, the couple is definitely not admitting to their alleged relationship yet. Reports suggest that Kohli had been living with the actress in her Mumbai flat, but ever since the news of his poor performance at a test series was linked to their rumoured relationship, he moved out of there, visiting pretty often.

What cemented the speculation around the much-in-love couple who isn't ready to come out in the open about their equation was Kohli's response to oblique remarks made by Dadi (Ali Asgar) on "Comedy Nights with Kapil".

Dadi taunted the sports star saying she really appreciated him travelling all the way to Spain to watch the FIFA World Cup matches. This made Kohli blush, as according to reports, Kohli was in Barcelona spending time with his rumoured ladylove on the sets of Zoya Akhtar's "Dil Dhadakne Do".
