Legendary Indian fast-bowler tied the knot with Bollywood actress Sagarika Ghatge on Thursday morning. With this, the couple joined the long list of cricketer-actress relationships. The couple had been in a relationship for a long time and got engaged earlier this year. The marriage took place on the same day when another Indian fast-bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar also got hitched. Zaheer Khan’s long-time friend and former teammate Ashish Nehra was also present when the couple got married. Zaheer Khan, Sagarika Ghatge marriage pics emerged on the internet in a short time and went viral. The couple’s photo was shared by Anjana Sharma, the Head of Business and Brand marketing for Zaheer Khan’s Prosport Fitness Studio who wrote along with Zaheer and Sagarika’s picture, “And its done…my last partner in crime…@zaheer_khan34 @sagarikaghatge …let the party begin.” Sagarika looked stunning in a red sari adorned with a chic jewellery and Zaheer complemented the look with a pink kurta.
The couple had revealed their engagement back in April this year when Zaheer Khan took to Twitter to say, ”Partners for life!!! #engaged.” The couple is all set to kick-start their journey together and the wedding preparations are on, according to reports. Sagarika’s friend and Chak De India co-star Vidya Malvade on Wednesday shared the couple’s wedding card on her Instagram story. She had also shared an adorable photo of Sagarika who was all set to be a ‘cricketer’s wife’. She was all smiles and laden with all sorts of fancy jewellery in the snap. “The mad bride is here,” wrote Vidya on the picture. She also captioned it: “And the madness begins -tomorrow. Blessings and more blessings to my gorgeous sister from another mister.”
After the marriage, there will be a cocktail party at a five-star hotel in the evening. The Mehendi ceremony is scheduled for Sunday followed by a grand reception on Monday evening. Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan’s wedding reception will be held on November 27 at Taj Mahal Palace and Tower in Mumbai. As of now, it is not known as to who will be a part of the wedding reception, but one thing is for sure that the ceremony will be a star-studded affair.
