In 2020, many Bollywood celebrities were stopped during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the big, fat Indian celebrity weddings, which are usually one big affair that lasts for a week with singing, dancing and gala parties, have been reduced to low-key ceremonies with family and close friends.

The upcoming April 22 celebrity wedding of Indian badminton star Jwala Gutta to well-known actor Vishnu Vishal broke the internet and caused a stir on social media on Tuesday.

The couple, who got engaged in September 2020, shared the wedding invitation that read, “Life is a journey … embrace it … have faith and take the plunge …”

Partly due to the increase in COVID cases in India, the wedding will be a low key affair with the couple only inviting their respective families and close friends.

Social media are baffled as both Jwala and Vishnu’s fans send them congratulatory messages and wishes for the second inning of their lives.

Congratulations, my favorite athlete “Jwala – Das Feuer”, all the best for a bright future in this new inning of life

While Vishnu is known for his appearances in many Telugu language films such as “Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu”, “Neerparavai” and “Ratsasan”, the Indian shuttle Jwala Gutta is the gold medalist of the Commonwealth Games.
