Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty, who has been dating IPL team Lucknow Super Giants captain and Indian national team vice-captain KL Rahul for over three years, is set to tie the knot with him in the coming three months.
A source close to Athiya told India Today when the wedding preparations are going on in full swing and Rahul’s parents recently went to Mumbai to meet Athiya’s family.
The couple, along with their families, reportedly visited the new home to see the progress as they will be moving soon. The wedding, every detail of which is being looked after by the bride herself, is expected to take place in Mumbai.
According to India Today, Athiya had recently left for Germany for her treatment with KL Rahul. The cricketer was ruled out of India’s tour of England due to injury. The 30-year-old, who suffered a groin injury, underwent surgery in Germany. The source further revealed that Rahul will be there for almost a month and Athiya will be with him during his recovery.
This is the second time this year that the rumors of their marriage are doing the rounds. In April this year, Athiya’s father Suniel Shetty reacted to these rumours, saying that it is for the couple to decide when they want to get married.
“She is my daughter, she will get married sometime. I want my son to get married too, the sooner the better. It’s their choice. As far as KL Rahul is concerned, I am in love with that guy. And it is for them to decide what they want to do, because times have changed. Both daughter and son are responsible (my daughter and son are both responsible people). I want them to decide. My blessings are always with him,” said the 60-year-old actor.
Rahul recently had a successful surgery for a sports hernia in Germany and is expected to be out of competitive cricket for the next few months. Rahul, who was forced out of the home T20I series against South Africa, faced fitness issues related to his lower abdomen, including a groin strain and hamstring injuries.
