One of the most famous men in the Indian cricket team, Ravichandran Ashwin, has taken many wickets not just on the field but also off the field. Not just his professional life, but the personal life of this tall-dark-handsome guy of the Indian cricket team has weaved magic on many women.
One of them being his lady-love and now wife, Prithi Narayanan. Ravichandran Ashwin and his wife, Prithi have fantastic chemistry. Still, not everyone is aware of their love story that is nothing less than a Bollywood film. Let's take a look into the same!
Born in a Tamil speaking family from Chennai on September 17, 1986, Ashwin had inherited the know-how of the nuances of cricket from his father. In fact, it was while watching his father’s master-strokes at club level cricket matches that Ashwin too expressed his wish to be a part of the Indian cricket team.
It was during his school days that Ashwin had first laid his eyes on the beautiful, Prithi. A friendship had blossomed between the two and had grown stronger when they had enrolled in the same college together. The couple had joined SSN College of Engineering in Chennai, and love had blossomed between the two gradually. Since the families knew each other quite well, there never came any moment of opposition. Ashwin and Prithi uninhibitedly enjoyed their dating period.
Ashwin’s cricketing career got wings, and slowly and steadily, he turned into an indispensable player of the Indian cricket team. However, as his career had started shaping up and his presence became crucial in the Indian cricket team, his personal time had kept getting shorter and shorter. Long calls and dates were no longer that frequent, but that did not deter Prithi and Ashwin’s love for each other. Even when Ashwin could not be by her side, Prithi had understood and respected his commitment towards his passion and country.
It was in 2011 that the couple had finally decided to take the next step. Ravichandran Ashwin and Prithi Narayanan had opted for a low-key engagement ceremony towards the beginning of the year and had opted for a grand wedding on November 13, 2011. The couple had tied the knot decked up as per the traditional Tamil wedding customs. Although, Ashwin and Prithi's wedding ceremony did not have the big names of the cricket fraternity in full attendance. Ashwin also took a short break from cricket to be with his wife and enjoy his newly married phase.
The couple was blessed with a cute baby girl in 2015. Ashwin and Prithi named their daughter, Akhira. And, their second little angel was born on December 21, 2016, but Prithi intentionally hid the news of the baby’s arrival for good four days. It was only on December 26, 2016, that she had announced the arrival of their second child. Here is what she had tweeted back then:
“I delivered carrom baby #2 on the 21st. She waited out a State-wide shut down thanks to the cyclone AND 5 days of Test cricket at Chepauk.”
Ashwin's wife, Prithi, can often be seen accompanying Ashwin to his matches and remains one of the most exciting audiences. Aren't they just adorable? Speaking of their adorableness, back in 2017, Prithi had shared some of the hilarious tweets on their marriage anniversary. Ashwin had wished her a happy marriage anniversary and thanked Prithi for her support, to which she had replied in a series of tweets in the funniest possible ways:
According to a report in caknowlegde.com, Ravichandran Ashwin’s net worth is reportedly around Rs. 110 crore. Talking about Ashwin’s main source of income, then it comes from cricket, playing for the Indian cricket team and in IPL (Indian Premier League). Other than this, the cricketer also earns a good amount of money from his endorsements and public events.
Isn’t this amazing? Everyone must crave to have a life partner like Aswhin and Prithi. It’s best when your soulmate is also your best friend, like this adorable couple. We wish them many more joyous years of togetherness and love.
