Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul tied the knot today (Jan 23) at her father Suniel Shetty’s farm in Khandala. The wedding ceremony started in the afternoon at the farm in the city of Maharashtra. In the evening, hours after the wedding ceremony ended, the newlyweds shared their first photos as husband and wife.
Athiya and Rahul took to Instagram and shared a merged post with a carousel of their wedding photos. The caption read: “In your light I learn to love…” Today we married our most loved ones in the home that has given us immense joy and serenity. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we seek your blessings on this journey of togetherness.”
Earlier in the day, Suniel and son Ahan Shetty came out to meet the paparazzi and hand out sweets to them. Suniel Shetty, dressed in a pastel colored dhoti and kurta, and Ahan, dressed in white sherwani, came to the road outside their farm where the media gather on Monday night. After confirming that the wedding had taken place, they sought blessings for the newlyweds. The two actors then handed out candy to the photographers and reporters gathered there and greeted them with folded hands.
Ahan Shetty took a moment to briefly address the media and expressed happiness at his sister’s wedding. Speaking to the media while handing out sweets, Ahan said, “I’m super, super happy. Rahul has always been like a brother to me. So I’m so happy he’s part of the family now.” Ahan thanked the media for their best wishes.
Athiya had been in a relationship with cricketer KL Rahul for several years. A lead-off batsman and wicket-keeper, Rahul is one of the key members of the Indian cricket team. The couple remained silent about their relationship for a long time. They seemingly made it official when Rahul attended the premiere of Ahan’s debut film Tadap in December 2021. Finally, after being silent for a long time, KL Rahul and Athiya made their relationship official last year. Rahul took to social media to wish Athiya in a loving post with the pair pictured together.
