As KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty gear up for their wedding festivities from January 21 to January 23, we take a look at other celebrity couples likely to tie the knot this year.
Sidharth Malhotra – Kiara Advani
Perhaps the most talked about couple in Bollywood, Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani have still managed to keep their relationship a secret and have only dropped hints about their rumored affair. Although it has been rumored that the two have been dating ever since they worked together on the 2021 blockbuster Shershaah, none of the actors have said anything publicly. Rumors that the two would get married have been circulating for quite some time and according to the latest reports, Sid and Kiara will tie the knot in Rajasthan in the first week of February. Since Sid is a boy from Delhi, there might also be a family party in the capital followed by a star-studded reception in Mumbai.
Arjun Kapoor – Malaika Arora
Arjun and Malla took their own sweet time making their relationship official on Instagram, red carpets and other public gatherings. And their vacation photos together are nothing short of a couple of goals. The two, who share a 12-year age difference, have been dating since 2019 but have yet to walk down the aisle. While rumors abounded that they would get married in 2022, their fans might see them exchange vows this year.
On Koffee with Karan recently, Arjun said he has no plans to bite the dust anytime soon. “I’m a very realistic person Karan, it’s not like I have to hide anything. I’m not sitting here and I’m holding back. I would like to be a bit more stable professionally. I’m not talking about financial, I’m talking about emotional. I want to do work that makes me happy. Because if I’m happy, I can make my partner happy, I can live a happy life. I feel that a lot of my happiness comes from my work.”
Jackky Bhagnani and Rakul Preet Singh
This actor-filmmaker Jodi made their relationship Insta official on Jackky’s birthday in early 2022. Reports that they were getting married soon followed as rumors of Rakul’s brother confirming the wedding date quickly surfaced online. Ignoring the speculated date on social media, Rakul Preet Singh tagged her brother Aman Preet and tweeted: “@AmanPreetOffl have you confirmed? Aur mujhe bataya bhi nahi bro. it’s funny that I have no news about my life.”
Talking about her relationship with Jackky, Rakul said in an interview, “Both I and Jackky believe that you should show respect to your partner. We are so busy in our way that we don’t talk about work. When it comes to certain things I want to discuss, I do, otherwise we give each other that respect of being in a relationship. And then security comes in.”
Tejasswi Prakash-Karan Kundrra
TejRan, aka Tejasswi, and Karan, one of the most popular TV couples and much loved on social media, would take the next big step in their relationship this year. The rumors took off, especially after the two bought a swanky pillow in Dubai. Tejasswi and Karan developed a liking for each other during their stint on Bigg Boss 15 and soon fell in love.
Talking about their marriage, Karan previously said in an interview, “I have accepted ki meri shaadi Tejasswi se ho rahi hai (I have accepted that I will marry Tejasswi).” He then continued, “Pehli shaadi hai joh India ne decision karli hai ki ye toh honi hi hai. Humse toh koi puch hi nahi raha. (Ours is the first marriage confirmed by India. No one asks us about it).”
Vidyut Jammwal -Nandita Mahtani
Actor Vidyut Jammwal and fashion designer Nandita Mahtani got engaged in September 2021 and are expected to marry in 2023, though nothing has been officially announced from either of them yet. Reports of two exchanges of vows gathered momentum in July 2022, but nothing materialized. For their engagement, the 42-year-old actor opted for an adventure-packed adventure when they were spotted climbing a wall while holding hands. Another photo showed the duo admiring the Taj Mahal.
