For more than three years, Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty has been dating KL Rahul, captain of the Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL and vice-captain of the Indian national team. The two are expected to wed in the upcoming three months.
Rahul’s parents recently visited Mumbai to meet Athiya’s family, according to a source close to Athiya who spoke with India Today. Wedding preparations are now in full swing.
The couple reportedly visited the new home with their families to check on the work because they will soon be moving in. The bride herself is in charge of organising every aspect of the wedding, which is scheduled to take place in Mumbai.
Athiya recently travelled to Germany with KL Rahul for medical treatment, according to a report. Due to an injury, the cricketer was unable to participate in India’s tour of England. The 30-year-old underwent surgery in Germany for a groyne issue. Rahul would be there for about a month, and Athiya would be by his side as he recovered, the source added.

In the past, Suniel has spoken of his fondness for Rahul. “As far as KL Rahul is concerned, I love the boy. And it is for them to decide what they want to do, because times have changed. Beti aur beta dono hi responsible hai (My daughter and son are both responsible people). I would like them to take the decision. My blessings are always there for them,” he told ETimes.
