“High profile marriages are obviously a little bit complicated in terms of dealing with so much of outside stuff, it’s not just internal,” Sania said here on Saturday.
“They obviously realised how the media hype would be here so they went to Italy. At some point, they have to face it,” added Sania who herself forms a high-profile couple with Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik.
Terming wedding as ‘stressful’, Sania said: “I don’t cherish media hype at all. Shaadi gives enough stress anyway. My sister got married, it was not high profile yet still it was very stressful.”
Known to both of them, Sania was one of the firsts to take to Twitter and congratulate Kohli and Anushka on December 12.

“The fact is, it’s really amazing – Virat and Anushka. It’s known that they’ve been together for a long time and what better it is when two people who love each other get married,” she said.
“I know them both personally, they are amazing together. They are amazing separately as well. They are amazing people and I wish them all the best.”
Asked whether she would make it to their reception slated for December 21 in New Delhi and December 26 in Mumbai, she said: “I don’t know. I will not be in the country. I am leaving on December 21, I’ll be in Dubai.”
