Sakshi Malik, first Indian woman wrestler to win a medal at Olympics, will get married to fellow wrestler Satyawart Kadian on Sunday.
Marriage preparation is in full flash as this event will be at her residence itself. Mehandi is scheduled on Saturday while they had the pre-wed shoot earlier this week.
Back in October 2016, this duo got engaged in private ceremony at Sakshi’s residence just after two months she returned home with Bronze Medal. The wedding ceremony though is expected to be a grand affair with sportspersons such as Sachin Tendulkar, PV Sindhu, Dipa Karmakar and Virender Sehwag expected to take part.
“We have invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, entire state cabinet and many others from the sports and Bollywood industries. We would love it if everyone could make it,” Sakshi’s mother Sudesh Malik told HT
Satyawart who is already a year younger than Sakshi, is the son of Arjuna Awardee wrestler Satyavan Kadian. He trains at his father’s Akhada in Rohtak, and has bagged several medals for wrestling in India and abroad. He won his first medal, a bronze, at the 2010 Youth Olympics but came into international limelight when he won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow in 2014.
“My father always wanted me to be a wrestler, so he started training me in childhood. To his good luck, even his daughter-in-law is also a wrestler,” Satyawart said.
The couple had recently shared a photograph telling their big date ‘April 2’ to their fans on Facebook.
