The rumours of Vinesh Phogat dating Somveer Rathi were doing the rounds for a long time. Not that the lovebirds ever shied away from expressing their love for each other on social media but they made it a point to never speak about it in public.
However, things were officially confirmed after the two got engaged immediately after Vinesh came back from Jakarta winning Gold at the Asian Games 2018 in August. She won the medal in 50kg freestyle wrestling category and became the first Indian woman to win Gold in the category.
The two exchanged rings at Indira Gandhi International airport, immediately after Vinesh landed in the country from Jakarta.
As things got an official seal, the fans of Vinesh were eagerly waiting for the next big news to arrive – the wedding date? Now, Amar Ujala has reported that the duo is about to tie the knot on December 13 whereas the reception is December 14. The wedding will take place in Haryana’s Charkhi Dadri district’s Balali village.
According to reports in the Hindi publication, on Sunday, December 2, Vinesh gave the wedding invite to Wrestling Federation of India’s president, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.
