Love is in the air! KL Rahul, who celebrated his 28th birthday on Saturday, got the sweetest message from Bollywood actress, Athiya Shetty.
Bollywood actress and veteran actor Suneil Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty has made her relationship with rumoured boyfriend KL Rahul sort of Instagram official. And what could have been a possibly better day to do so than on the cricketer’s birthday, right? Athiya posted a super cute photo of the duo on social media along with the sweetest message in which she calls him – “my person”.
Athiya wrote in the caption, “Happy birthday, my person” and added a heart emoji. While we all are eagerly waiting for KL Rahul’s reaction to Athiya’s greeting, we are happy that they have progressed and are set to make the most adorable couple in town.

While rumours of their alleged relationship surfaced last year after KL Rahul posted an adorable birthday wish for Athiya on social media, the cricketer, earlier this year, posted another picture of himself along with her that went insanely viral.
The speculations grew again about their affair when Athiya shared a picture wearing an oversized shirt on her social media account which was rumoured to be one of his shirts. Although rumours about their affair have been going on for a long time, neither of the two has ever confirmed it but their cheeky and endearing exchanges through social media posts have naturally grabbed attention, most of the time.
In an interview, some time back, Athiya’s father and actor Suneil Shetty had mentioned, “I love Ahan’s girlfriend and I love whom Athiya is seeing. I do not have a problem with that, Mana (Suniel Shetty’s wife) doesn’t have a problem with that and they are happy.”
KL Rahul is one of the top performers for India on field in limited overs. This right-handed batsman made his Test debut back in 2014 and went on to become the first Indian batsman to score a century in his first game for the country in the 50-over format. He is also one of the only three Indian batsmen to have scored a century in all the three formats of the game.
Meanwhile, Athiya Shetty made her Bollywood debut with 2015 film Hero and has since featured in Mubarakan. She was last seen in Motichoor Chaknachoor with Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
