India's Rio Olympics queen Sakshi Malik is tying the knot in a few days' time, more precisely, on WrestleMania 33 day. Sakshi, 24, made history when she won an Olympic medal for India in women's amateur wrestling for the first time ever, after she bagged the bronze in the 58kg freestyle category.

She is now set to marry fellow Indian wrestler Satyawart Kadian on Sunday.

Sakshi's marriage with Satyawart is taking place in their native place in Rohtak and contrary to popular beliefs, the wedding day is going to be a really low-key affair, just like the wedding card.
