Sakshi Malik engaged to wrestler Satyawart
New Delhi: Bronze medalist in Rio Olympics Sakshi Malik got engaged to wrestler boyfriend Satyawart Kadian at her residence in Rohtak on Sunday.
She had earlier spoken about Satyawart and announced her marriage plan soon after returning from Rio. She has told the media that he is very supportive and “thinks of my dreams as his own”.
“It was a private function. Only the families of the to-be bride and groom attended the event and it went very well,” Satyawart’s father Arjuna Awardee Satyavan Pehelwan said.
The 24-year old wrestler is two years older than Satyawart and trains at his father’s akhada in Rohtak.
Satywart rose to fame in the 2013 World Youth Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, after he won his first bronze medal.
