Looks like the wedding of Suniel Shetty’s daughter, actress Athiya Shetty, and Team India cricketer KL Rahul is indeed happening in the next few days.
While several reports have been floating online that the couple is set to tie the knot on January 23 at Suniel’s Khandala farmhouse, seems like there was quite some truth to them.
While the paparazzi have stationed themselves outside the residences of KL Rahul and the Shettys, turns out that the families have already driven down to Khandala for the D-Day.
Athiya, Rahul’s families already in Khandala
On Tuesday evening, Rahul’s residence in Mumbai was all lit up and decorated and fans wondered if it was for the couple’s wedding.
The guard stationed under the building told Free Press Journal, “Rahul and the Shettys have already left for Suniel Shetty’s farmhouse in Khandala 3-4 days ago for the wedding preparations.”
However, he added, “The decoration which you see outside is for someone else’s wedding.”
An attendant at a nearby shop said, “I see many luxury cars come and go out of the building, but I cannot really see who arrives and leaves the building as I am busy with my work.”
Athiya-Rahul’s wedding dates
Athiya and Rahul will reportedly take the plunge on January 23 at Suniel Shetty’s Khandala farmhouse.
As per reports, invites for the wedding have already been sent out and among those who have confirmed their presence is Akanksha Ranjan, who is Athiya’s closest friend.
The pre-wedding festivities, which will include haldi, mehendi and sangeet ceremonies, will begin from January 21, and post the wedding, the couple will return to Mumbai to Rahul’s house.
