[In Pictures] Axar Patel ties the knot with Meha Patel in Vadodara
Team India all-rounder Axar Patel tied the knot with Meha Patel in Vadodara on Thursday, January 26. The 29-year-old took leave from the ongoing limited-overs series against New Zealand at home for his wedding.
Before Axar, another Indian cricketer, KL Rahul, got married to actor Athiya Shetty in Khandala, Maharashtra, in a private ceremony on January 23.
While Axar is yet to share any pictures from his wedding function, images and videos from his wedding and sangeet ceremony have gone viral on social media.
Saurashtra captain and Team India left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat shared a picture with the newlyweds on his official Instagram handle. He uploaded the image with the caption:
“Lots of love & good vibes to the newly weds! ❤️. Welcome to the club.. 😉🥂.”
Axar’s wife Meha is a nutritionist and dietitian. According to some reports, she runs her own business and offers online counseling as well.
Earlier on Wednesday, January 25, Axar’s dance video from his sangeet ceremony also won a lot of hearts on social media.
The cricketer and Meha were seen grooving to the peppy song 'Maan Meri Jaan'. A number of background dancers were also present on stage, holding large heart-shaped cutouts in their hands.
Axar and Meha got engaged in January last year on the all-rounder’s 28th birthday.
The duo keep sharing pictures of each other on social media.
