Mumbai, Jan 23: Star India cricketer KL Rahul tied the knot with his ladylove Athiya Shetty on Monday (January 23) in an intimate gathering of his family members and close friends.
The wedding ceremonies are being held at the Khandala-based farmhouse of Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty, Athiya's father.
On Monday evening, Suniel Shetty along with his actor son Ahan Shetty informed the media persons, as well as the paparazzi, stationed outside his residence to cover his daughter's wedding that the marriage has been completed. They even distributed sweets to the paparazzi.
"It was a small gathering but very beautiful. The pheres have been completed. So they are officially a husband and wife now and I have become the father-in-law as well. The reception will plan after the IPL 2023. I have got another son," a proud Suniel Shetty while interacting with the media persons said. The veteran actor also thanked the media persons for their support. The couple is likely to pose for paparazzi later in the evening.
By the looks of the traditional attire donned by the actor and his son, it was easy to predict that it was a traditional South Indian wedding as both families are Kannada.
The India cricketer later in the day posted images from his dreamy wedding with his ladylove to announce the start of a new innings.
"In your light, I learn how to love..."."Today, with our most loved ones, we got married in the home that's given us immense joy and serenity. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we seek your blessings on this journey of togetherness. 🙏🏽 @theathiyashetty," the 29-year-old cricketer captioned the images across his social media handles.
