There have been too many celeb-weddings lately, and the filmy shaadi season seems never ending. Not that we’re complaining. Each shaadi comes with some beautiful pictures and setting. But they all have an even more magical love story, to begin with. And now that Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul have tied the knot, we cannot not talk about how it all began!
