NEW DELHI, Oct 8 (PTI): India�s popular sports couple Dipika Pallikal and Dinesh Karthik have decided to get married mid next year after almost two years of togetherness made official with their engagement last November.
Squash queen Pallikal has usually been more vocal about the celebrated relationship but this time India cricketer Karthik took it upon himself to share the wedding plans.
�I have been ready for it (marriage) for sometime now. She has been ready for it from the beginning and the dates are more or less are final. We have gotten to use each other a lot more than it was at the start. So basically, we are ready and there is no fear,� Karthik told PTI in a candid chat today after the couple announced their association with Platinum Love Bands.
They had to postpone their marriage this year owing to hectic schedules, more so for Pallikal, who had to focus on the Asian Games and Commonwealth Games. As it turns out, it was worth the wait with the gorgeous squash player drawing a record three medals from the mega quadrennial events.
�I can�t really complain about how the script has unfolded. I can look forward to settling down in my life after the best year of my professional career. Having Dinesh by my side in the last year and half is special and I look forward to even better times,� said Pallikal.
