Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap to tie the knot in December: Reports
A wedding between Indian badminton stars Parupalli Kashyap and Saina Nehwal might be on the cards, according to reports from The Times Of India.
The report also states that December 16 has been fixed as the date for the marriage which would have an attendance of about 100 people. A grand reception would follow on December 21.
“Both families had been planning the wedding for a while. They have now finalised the date. The arrangements are all for December 16,” a source close to the couple was quoted by the report as saying.
Both Nehwal and Kashyap have been training under the guidance of Pulella Gopichand since 2005 and time and time and again, the duo have played down rumours of having an affair, while supposedly dating for the past 10 years.

Currently playing in the Korea Open, Nehwal has been one of Indian best badminton players with 20 major titles, a bronze medal at the Olympics and a silver at the World Championship to her name, among many other accolades.
Kashayp too has been a dominant shuttler in the men’s badminton and became world no. 6 at one point, before injuries played their part on his career.
Earlier, Nehwal had talked about the motivation that Kashyap has provided her with after she clinched the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast earlier this year.
