Indian cricketer, KL Rahul is currently enjoying a vacation in London with his darling wife, Athiya Shetty. For the unversed, the cricketer recently suffered a major hip flexor injury on May 1, 2023, during the match between his team, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL 2023. KL Rahul has been ruled out of this year's IPL as well as the upcoming World Test Championship 2023 final, as he travelled to the UK for surgery.
While KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty are travelling in London, we have got hold of an unseen video of the couple, which has been going viral on the internet. They were seen standing inside a strip club, and the cricketer was looking at an exotic dancer doing a pole dance in a sultry lingerie set. As KL Rahul is on a break and is recovering from surgery, this video has left the netizens shocked. Even his wife, Athiya Shetty was reportedly with him at the club, but she was not seen in the video.
Ever since the video has been shared online, it has taken social media by storm with netizens flooding the comments section with hilarious comments. However, a few also pointed out that Rahul's wife, Athiya Shetty, has also accompanied him and there is a high possibility that she was also in the club. Meanwhile, a user wrote, “What kind of newly married honeymoon phase is this? Not questioning anyone’s individual choice but find it a bit weird.” Check out the comments below:

Now, Athiya Shetty took to her Instagram stories and addressed the controversy around the alleged video from a ‘strip club’ which surfaced on social media. She penned a note and revealed that she had visited a club in the city with her husband, KL Rahul and some friends. Dismissing all claims, Athiya wrote:
“I usually choose to be silent and not react, but sometimes it is important to stand up for yourself. Rahul, I and our friends went out to a regular place as one does.”
A few weeks back, KL Rahul and his wifey, Athiya Shetty visited the Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain, and a series of pictures from the same were shared on the internet. In the pictures, the much-in-love couple can be seen seeking blessings from God ahead of Rahul's third test match. For their visit, Athiya opted for a yellow-coloured saree, while her husband donned an orange dhoti with a matching doshala. Athiya and Rahul could be seen praying to God with joined hands and performing puja at the temple.
Apparently, KL Rahul is going through a tough phase in his career right now, and netizens have been blaming his wife, Athiya Shetty, for the same. Moreover, as soon as the pictures surfaced online, netizens were quick to take a nasty dig at the cricketer and trolled him for his bad form. They flooded the post's comment section with hate comments and mocked KL Rahul in the meanest way. The netizens asked the cricketer to take retirement and settle down in his life, rather than ruin the Indian cricket team. Check out the comments below:
Earlier, in an interview with Siddharth Kanan, Suniel Shetty opened up about his son-in-law, KL Rahul's underperformance on the cricket ground and shared that he knows his children are fighters. Reflecting on the same, the actor said that he can't teach KL Rahul to play cricket as he is playing for the country and commenting on his performance would not be suitable. Suniel said:
"We don’t discuss about failure or not doing well because we all know that they (his children) are fighters. We show more love. We talk about everything else in the world and try to take our minds off it. I can’t teach KL Rahul how to play cricket. He is playing for the country, not playing gully cricket or for somebody to comment and say ‘aise khelo, waise khelo’. If I would have said it, that would have been for gully (street) cricket.”
