Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap are likely to tie the knot by the end of this year according to reports in the TOI.
The report mentions that the marriage ceremony will take place on December 16, which will be attended by around 100 people. Meanwhile, a grand reception is slated to take place on December 21.
“Both families had been planning the wedding for a while. They have now finalised the date. The arrangements are all for December 16,” a source close to the family was quoted as saying.
Both Saina and Kashyap, who have been training with Pullela Gopichand since 2005, have repeatedly denied the rumours of being a couple but they have supposedly been dating for the last ten years.
Earlier this year, during the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast Saina had mentioned how Kashyap has played an important role in motivating her after she won the Commonwealth Games singles gold.
Saina has 20 major titles to her name, which includes an Olympic bronze and a silver at the World Championships. Kashyap has also reached the highs of a World No. 6 ranking before injuries stopped his rise in the men’s circuit.
