Actor Athiya Shetty posted an adorable birthday wish for cricketer-rumored friend KL Rahul on Sunday along with some silly pictures of the couple. “GHappy Birthday, ”wrote Athiya on Instagram next to the photo of her and Rahul making silly faces while taking a mirror selfie.
KL Rahul, who is currently busy with the Indian Premier League, turned 29 on Sunday. The actor has a working birthday as he is the captain of the Punjab Kings team. Athiya Shetty’s brother Ahan Shetty also left a birthday wish for the cricketer on his Instagram page. Ahan posted a photo of himself and Rahul from an airport and wrote: “Happy birthday KL Rahul.”
While Athiya and Rahul have remained mothers through their relationship, their pictures and social media posts speak volumes about their shared warmth. On her birthday last November, Rahul posted a cute, intimate photo of herself with Athiya and wrote: “Happy birthday, crazy kid. “The picture showed Athiya resting her head on Rahul’s shoulder while they both smiled into the camera.
Athiya and Rahul had also welcomed a group of close friends together in Thailand in 2020 on a holiday. Among the many photos they posted on Instagram, one that even received a comment from Athiya’s father, Suniel Shetty, of Rahul and Athiya at a phone booth.
The cricketer had given it a title and written: “Hello, Devi Prasad …?” The line is from Suniel Shetty’s 2000 hit comedy Hera Pheri, and the actor also went to the comments section to share a laugh.
