Saina and Kashyap, who met at the academy of Pullela Gopichand, were in a relationship for quite some time now but the couple were never open about it.

 

Saina had confirmed the news of their wedding in October but the hectic international badminton schedule kept them busy.

Last month, they started extending their wedding invitation to important personalties, including Telangana MLA K.T Rama Rao, film star Chiranjeevi and VRK Rao — the owner of Pro Badminton League franchise Hyderabad Hunters.
