He had even captioned the photograph as “Happy birthday my (with a heart emoji).” While the first photo was of them sitting together in a café the second photograph saw them at their playful best a they had posed making goofy faces!
And also, during the launch event of ‘Dharavi Bank’, when the media personnel had asked Suniel Shetty about his daughter Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul’s wedding, Suniel Shetty had rreplied, “Jaldi hogi.”
Amidst all of this, there is a big buzz that, on the day of the wedding, Athiya’s brother Ahan Shetty has planned a big surprise for the newlyweds. Speaking of Ahan Shetty, he was seen in his Bollywood debut film ‘Tadap’, in which he was paired opposite Tara Sutaria.
Because this rumored wedding is an amalgamation of Bollywood and cricket, it becomes a given that the guests invited fir the wedding will be from both the ‘fields’.
If the reports are to be believed, then, Akshay Kumar, Jackie Shroff will be there from the film fraternity (besides others), and M. S. Dhoni and Virat Kohli will be there from the cricketing fraternity (besides others).
And as far as KL Rahul’s participation in the cricket matches are concerned, then, the ace cricketer was rested for the forthcoming series against New Zealand owing to ‘family commitments’, as per a BCCI statement.
As per (unconfirmed) reports, the couple will be, in all likelihood, all set to have a traditional South Indian wedding. It’s also being rumored that while ‘Celebrity Fashion Stylist’ Ami Patel will be styling Athiya Shetty, a leading fashion designer from down south will be taking care of K L Rahul’s wedding outfits.
