2016 was a special year for Sakshi Malik but 2017 just added some glean of its own in the wrestling champ’s calendar. The Rio Olympics’ bronze medallist tied the knot with her wrestler fiance Satyawart Kadian on 2 April in her hometown Rohtak’s Nandal Bhawan.
The pair had gotten engaged in October last year, two months after Sakshi’s successful outing at the Olympics. While the star had chosen to remain tight-lipped about her impending marriage for a majority of last year, she did share some of her excitement with The Quint.
While many big-ticket sports stars were expected to attended Sakshi’s wedding, a lot many took to Twitter to congratulate her on her new journey.
