The wedding ceremony of Athiya Shetty and cricketer KL Rahul has ended, 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 son Ahan left the wedding venue – their home in Khandala – after the ceremony to hand out sweets to the media stationed there for the day. “There’s a lot going on, aur abhi phere bhi ho gaye, shaadi officially what did you do, and official father-in-law bhi ban chuka hoon (It went well and the feras just ended. The wedding is officially over 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 “beautiful,” Suniel said, dressed in a festive traditional outfit. He joked that the “father-in-law chakkar” should be done away with, leaving only the “father” part. “In law ka chakkar agar hat jaye aur agar father hello rahu toh bhaut khoobsurat hai, kyunki woh part main bhaut ache se nibhaata hoon (It would be great to dispense with ‘in-laws’ and let ‘dad’ stay, because that’s a responsibility I’m well off),” he said.
Suniel Shetty also said that a wedding reception is likely to take place after the IPL season ends.
