The functions are expected to take place at Suniel Shetty’s residence in Khandala between January 21-23. What has further fuelled the rumours is that KL Rahul has taken leave in January. According to a Pinkvilla report, KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty chose to not opt for a big fancy wedding at a 5-star hotel.
