It seems celebs are in the mood of getting married this year. After Sonam Kapoor, Neha Dhupia tied the nuptial knots, rumours of Kapil Sharma's marriage is doing rounds the corners. However, a celeb has confirmed the news of her going to get married. We are talking about the star badminton player Saina Nehwal. She is all set to marry her boyfriend Parupalli Kashyap who is also a badminton player and the Arjuna award winner.
For a few days, the rumours of her marriage were a riff and as per the sources, “Both families had been planning the wedding for a while now. Now they have finalised the date. The arrangements are all for December 16”.
Now, Saina herself confirmed her wedding and shared details of the wedding, “We started travelling for bigger tours from 2007-08 onwards. We played tournaments together, trained together and slowly, started paying more attention to each other's matches.”
The badminton player added, “In the competitive world that we live in, it is difficult to get close to someone. But somehow we both found it very easy to talk to each other, talk about our matches. The feeling gradually grew.”
Talking about the confirmed date of the wedding, “I will get busy with the Premier Badminton League from December 20 and then qualifiers for the Tokyo Games will begin. So this was the only date that we had to get married,” Saina said.
Saina further said, “We didn't think about marriage before. The career that we pursue is very demanding. It is very important to win tournaments and we didn't want to shift our focus by getting married earlier. A player needs treatment and attention just like a baby. At home, I get everything without asking, but this will change once I get married. I will be equally responsible of doing things on my own.”
Sharing her current thoughts about the wedding, she said, “I didn't want to rush things before the CWG and Asian Games. But now, we think we are ready for it and can manage things on our own.”
Telling parents about the wedding, Saina said, “Bolne ki zaroorat nahi padi (I didn't have to tell them). We used to be together most of the time and my parents also travelled with me, so they understood who I was close to and comfortable with even after my losses.”
We wish her congratulations!
