Love All: Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap are officially married
Yes, you heard it right! Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap are now an officially married couple.
Saina herself confirmed the news by sharing her wedding pictures on her Twitter handle. Saina added the caption "Best Match of her life" while sharing the pictures.
Saina and Kashyap had managed to keep their affair secret for over a decade. They started dating in 2008 when they began travelling together for tournaments, but not many knew about that.
Saina had herself once said in an interview, "I never needed to tell my parents about our relationship as they already knew whom I was most comfortable with".
Two days ago Kashyap's haldi ceremony pictures surfaced on the Internet, but only a few were privy to the event where they got married today.
2018 has been a year of weddings in India as we saw four big celebrity unions taking place in the span of a few months. It all started with Anushka Sharma marrying Virat Kohli last December. After that, Sonam Kapoor wedded Anand Ahuja. And we recently saw the Deepika-Ranveer and Priyanka-Nick Jonas weddings.
And now our very own star shuttler Saina has got married to another big name in Indian badminton. They concluded the wedding rituals at a very small function which included their family members and close friends.
Their wedding reception is set to take place in Hyderabad on 16 December. Reports have emerged that Saina has invited the likes of Pullela Gopichand, Telangana's Governor E S L Narasimhan and a few others for the event. As per the sources, PV Sindhu has also been invited for the reception.
The Saina-Kashyap marriage marks another chapter in Indian sporting matches after those of Dipika Pallikal-Dinesh Karthik, as well as wrestlers Geeta Phogat-Pawan Kumar and Sakshi Malik-Satyawart Kadian.
Both Saina and Kashyap will be seen playing in season 4 of the PBL, starting on 22 December. Saina will represent North-Eastern Warriors whereas Kashyap will represent the Chennai Smashers.
