Manish Pandey has become the latest Indian cricketer to get married. Just a day after leading Karnataka to a historic back-to-back Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophies, the India star tied the knot with Tamil actress Ashrita Shetty in a ceremony in Mumbai on Monday. The right-handed batsman led from the front, scoring 60 off just 45 balls as Karnataka beat Tamil Nadu by one run in the title-decider in Surat.
After the game ended, Manish Pandey himself revealed that he was getting married on Monday. The Karnataka skipper, who is a part of India’s T20I squad for the upcoming series against West Indies, said:
“Looking forward to the India series, but before that there is another important series for me, I am getting married tomorrow.”
The ceremony was a lavish affair and was only attended by the couple’s relatives and close friends. No cricketer was seen attending the ceremony in Mumbai. Pandey’s better half, Ashrita, meanwhile, is yet to break into the Bollywood. The 26-year old has predominantly featured in Tamil films. She rose to fame after working in Udhayam NH4 alongside Siddharth and also featured in Oru Kanniyum Moonu Kalavanigalum and Indrajith among other films.
Yuvraj on fire:
Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh was one of the attendees during Manish Pandey’s reception ceremony on Tuesday and as usual the legendary batsman once again stole the limelight. Known for his entertaining nature, Yuvraj did not shy away from hitting the dance floor. On the beat of Dhol, he was seen shaking legs with Manish as the two set the dance stage on fire.
Here is the video of Yuvraj dancing with Manish:
