Father-of-the-bride and newly minted father-in-law Suniel Shetty has shared wisdom and blessings for daughter Athiya Shetty and cricketer KL Rahul who married in a private ceremony on Monday. The actor posted a picture of the bride and groom holding hands as they take the wedding pheras and wrote: "A hand to hold and a reason to believe because sometimes the right place is a person and the ingredients love and trust. Congratulations and God bless my bachchas." In the comments thread, Athiya wrote: "Love you" and added a heart emoji.

After the wedding ceremony in the family farmhouse in Khandala on Monday, Suniel Shetty and son Ahan distributed sweets to the media stationed at the venue. "I am now a father-in-law," Suniel Shetty told the media, adding that he would like to dispense with the 'in-law' bit and keep the 'father' because it is a role in which he excels – as his post today shows.
Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul posed for photos after the wedding – she in a pale pink Anamika Khanna lehenga, he in white. The newlyweds posted a set of pictures from the wedding, including the one shared today by Suniel Shetty. The wedding album was captioned: "Today, with our most loved ones, we got married in the home that's given us immense joy and serenity. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we seek your blessings on this journey of togetherness."
Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul's wedding was attended by only very close family and friends, among them Diana Penty, Krishna Shroff, Anshula Kapoor, and Anushka Ranjan with husband Aditya Seal. Cricketers Varun Aaron and Ishant Sharma, with wife Pratima Singh, also attended.
A reception will likely be held after the IPL season, Suniel Shetty said after the wedding.
