Newly-weds, Saina Nehwal and her husband Parupalli Kashyap are enjoying their married life to the fullest. The ace badminton players, Saina and Parupalli took the wedding vows on December 16, 2018. Speaking about the reason behind choosing December 16, 2018, as their wedding date, Saina was quoted as saying, “I will get busy with the Premier Badminton League from December 20 and then qualifiers for the Tokyo Games will begin. So, this was the only date that we had to get married.”
Soon after hitching, Saina and Parupalli went back to their professional commitments. And lately, Saina played for Indonesia Masters title and won it, adding another feather on her cap. Saina herself posted a few pictures of hers flaunting the medal and India’s national flag.

In an interview with The Times of India, the Padma Shri awardee shared, “We started travelling for bigger tours from 2007-08 onwards. We played tournaments together, trained together and slowly, started paying more attention to each other's matches.” And further added, “In the competitive world that we live in, it is difficult to get close to someone. But somehow we both found it very easy to talk to each other, talk about our matches. The feeling gradually grew.” (You May Also Like: Sania Mirza Posts An Adorable Picture With Son Izhaan Mirza Malik, B-Town Friends Can't Keep Calm)
Elaborating on getting married, Saina told the leading daily, “We didn't think about marriage before. The career that we pursue is very demanding. It is very important to win tournaments and we didn't want to shift our focus by getting married earlier.” She added, “A player needs treatment and attention just like a baby. At home, I get everything without asking, but this will change once I get married. I will be equally responsible of doing things on my own.”
Do you know, Saina didn’t even tell her parents about getting married to Parupalli as she said it was obvious for them? The badminton champ retorted, “Bolne ki zaroorat nahi padi (I didn't have to tell them). We used to be together most of the time and my parents also travelled with me, so they understood who I was close to and comfortable with even after my losses.”
Wishing newly-weds, Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap all the happiness and love!
