It seems like after Virat Kohi-Anushka Sharma, Hardik-Pandya-Natasa Stankovic, Zaheer Khan-Sagrika Ghatge and many more, another cricket-Bollywood couple is in the making. Any guesses? Yes, we're talking about the handsome, KL Rahul and the very beautiful, Athiya Shetty. The dating rumours of the two have been in the air for a long time now, but the alleged couple never confirmed their relationship.
Although, that never stopped the Bollywood buffs and cricket fanatics from speculating their alleged love affair. Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul's social media banters often add fuel to the fire, and this time, Athiya's father, the superstar, Suniel Shetty is also on the radar of gossipmongers. Scroll down to know why!
On April 18, 2021, KL Rahul turned 29, and his alleged girlfriend, Athiya Shetty posted a lovely wish for him. Sharing two goofy mirror selfies with KL Rahul, Athiya Shetty wrote in the caption, "Grateful for you, happy birthday." On her post, a lot of people commented, but the one comment that stood out was of Athiya's father, Suniel Shetty's. The doting father wrote, "Truly", and it became the second most-liked comment on Athiya's post. KL Rahul also commented on her post, and it can be read as "ALP." Share with us if you understand the meaning of KL Rahul's comment!
Last year on KL Rahul's birthday, Athiya Shetty had taken to her Instagram handle and had posted a picture with him, all cosying up and smiling. We could see her leaning on his shoulder. She had captioned the picture as "happy birthday, my person" followed by a white heart emoji.
Athiya Shetty's 28th birthday was on November 5, 2020, and KL Rahul had wished his rumoured girlfriend in the sweetest manner. The cricketer had shared a beautiful sun-kissed selfie with Athiya, and the two had looked adorable as they had twinned in black. Along with the photo, KL Rahul had written, "Happy birthday mad child" followed by a black heart in the caption. Soon, Athiya had dropped a white heart that denotes 'happiness and loyalty' in the comments. KL Rahul had also shared a rare and adorable photo of Athiya from her childhood days and one from her cake cutting ceremony on his IG stories.
Last year, we had stumbled upon a fan-made collage of KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty, which had shown the alleged couple in the same t-shirt. While Athiya was seen sipping her coconut water, wearing KL Rahul's tie-and-dye T-shirt, the cricketer was seen in the same t-shirt, sitting in some cafe. This fan-made collage had set fire to the speculations of the couple's dating.
On November 18, 2020, KL Rahul had taken to his IG handle and had posted a candid picture of himself holding UNO cards. The cricketer had looked dashing as ever; however, it was his caption that had caught our attention, as he had mentioned that he misses game night with his rumoured girlfriend, Athiya Shetty. His caption could be read as "Miss uno nights @mayankagarawal @aashitasood09 @athiyashetty @sinankader @ritik_bhasin." On his post, his alleged bae, Athiya had commented, "Great Cards."
Belated happy birthday, KL Rahul!
