KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty Confirms Wedding Date
In November 2022, Indian actor Suniel Shetty officially confirmed his daughter Athiya Shetty’s engagement to star Indian cricketer KL Rahul. At the time, details for the wedding were still in the works. Now, sources have confirmed that the cricket star and Bollywood actress will be exchanging vows on January 23.
Before this, the wedding dates have been repeatedly postponed because of KL Rahul's hectic schedule. In December, it was reported that KL Rahul had a leave approved by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to prepare for the wedding.
The wedding will be a three-day event that starts on January 21. The couple is planning to get married at Suniel Shetty's family home in Khandala with family and close friends in attendance.
Reports say that their wedding will have some well-known names from the film and cricket industries. Salman Khan, Jackie Shroff, Akshay Kumar, M S Dhoni, and Virat Kholi, are some of the names expected to attend the couple’s wedding.
Though the families of Athiya and KL Rahul are tight-lipped about any details of the wedding, there are reports of different plans.
When talking about the wedding, Suniel Shetty said, “It’s our daughter. I want her to get married. I want her to settle down. You know, I want her to have babies, and live a happy life. So, it will happen.”
He added, “But, I guess, timings, the profession they’re in, one’s playing for the country, one’s is doing her own thing with her work. When it happens, it will happen.”
Aside from the wedding, it’s reported that Suniel Shetty and KL Rahul's family are planning a lavish April event at Suniel Shetty's Khandala house for the elite of the entertainment, sports, business, and political worlds.
On social media, there are updates regarding their wedding. The last thing heard from the couple on social media was at the start of the New Year. KL Rahul shared a cozy picture of him and Athiya Shetty on his Instagram with the caption '2023.'
It was in 2021 that the couple’s relationship got revealed to the public. The duo got spotted at the premiere of the actress’s brother, Ahan Shetty’s debut movie 'Tadap'. Later, on Athiya’s birthday on November 5, Rahul posted a romantic picture and sent a birthday wish for his lover, thus confirming that the pair were officially together.
The couple had been together for around three years before the wedding was announced.
Recently, it was reported that KL Rahul guided India to a victory in the 2nd India VS Sri Lanka ODI with a run score of 64. India will be having their 3rd ODI against Sri Lanka on January 15 and starting on January 18, they will be having an ODI match against New Zealand.
