“Officially a stepfather,” says Suniel Shetty
The wedding ceremony of Athiya Shetty and cricketer KL Rahul has been completed, father-of-the-bride Suniel Shetty confirmed to the media on Monday night, adding: “I am now officially a father-in-law.” Suniel Shetty and her son Ahan left the wedding venue – their home in Khandala – after the ceremony to hand out sweets to the media who had been there all day. “Bahut acha raha, aur abhi phere bhi ho gaye, shaadi officially ho chuki hai aur official stepfather bhi ban chuka hoon (It went well and the feras just ended. The wedding is officially celebrated and I am now officially a father-in-law,” the actor told the media.
The wedding ceremony, attended only by the Shetty’s closest family and friends, was “magnificent,” Suniel said, dressed in traditional festive attire. He joked that the “stepfather chakkar” should be removed, leaving only the “father” track. “In law ka chakkar agar hat jaye aur agar father hello rahu toh bhaut khoobsurat hai, kyunki woh part hand bhaut ache se nibhaata hoon (It would be great to skip ‘brother-in-law’ and keep ‘father’, because that’s a responsibility I can handle),” he said.
Suniel Shetty also said that a wedding reception is likely to take place after the IPL season ends.

Before the wedding, the Shetty’s house in Mumbai was lit up and decorated just like KL Rahul’s. Renowned photographer Rohan Shrestha was photographed at Athiya Shetty’s home for the sangeet ceremony this weekend.
Athiya and KL Rahul reportedly started dating in 2019; she accompanied him when Team India played in the UK in 2021 and appeared in photos with Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, among others.
