India spin star Yuzvendra Chahal, on Saturday, announced his engagement with Dhanashree Verma. He took to Instagram to post an adorable picture from the ceremony as he confirmed his Roka with Dhanashree. Roka is one of the most significant ceremonies that take place before an Indian wedding. The engagement ceremony marks the union of both the bride and groom’s family and friends.
“We said “Yes” along with our families❤️ #rokaceremony,”wrote Yuzvendra Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal is the second Indian cricketer to get engaged this year after allrounder Hardik Pandya. On New Year’s Day, Pandya had announced his engagement with Bollywood actress Natasa Stankovic. Later in May, he announced that he and his partner are expecting their first child together. He had posted several pictures while announcing the pregnancy news.
In one of the pictures, the lover birds were were seen wearing varmala while performing a traditional ceremony which made many believe that the couple have already tied the knot. Neither Hardik Pandya nor Natasa have confirmed the news of their marriage so far. And last month, they also welcomed their first child.
Meanwhile, both Yuzvendra Chahal and Pandya have not played a competitive game for quite some time now due to the coronavirus pandemic. The leg-spinner last played for India during the tour of New Zealand earlier this year. On the other hand, Pandya’s last appearance for India came during the T20I series in South Africa last year before he was sidelined with a back injury.
Both the players will be seen in action soon when the IPL gets underway next month. The much-anticipated tournament will be played in the UAE from September 19 to November 10.
