KL Rahul and Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty will soon take their relationship to the next level as they are set to tie the knot on January 2023 according to the reports. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has approved Rahul’s ‘personal leave’ but didn’t reveal the reason for the leave. But it has been speculated that the cricketer will marry Athiya during that absence.


As India will be locking horns with Sri Lanka at home, Rahul might skip it to get married. The marriage is expected to be held in the first week of January 2023. In the absence of Rahul, Hardik Pandya can be appointed as the vice-captain of the Men in Blue.

Also, Athiya’s father Suniel Shetty confirmed the rumor about a couple of days ago about the marriage of the couple. “Hopefully soon, we will know when and where will the wedding will happen. I guess at the right time, everyone will know the details about the wedding,” Suniel told Hindustan Times.

Earlier, a BCCI official told InsideSport: “KL has asked for some personal time off. That is why he is not playing in New Zealand. He does not have any injury concerns or a break. He has some family commitments. I am not aware if he is getting married or engaged but yes, he has some personal commitment is what I can tell you.”
