Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Indian cricketer KL Rahul along with his wife, Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty visited the Mahakal Temple in Ujjain on Sunday. The newly wed couple took blessings from Baba Mahakal and also took part in the ‘Bhasmaarti’ there.
Both Athiya and Rahul were seen wearing yellow on this occasion. They offered ‘jal’ at the Mahakal Jyotirlinga in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple.
Bollywood actress and Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty tied the knot with Team India cricketer KL Rahul on January 23 this year.
One of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva, the Mahakal Temple is always flooded with devotees who seek Baba Mahakal’s blessings including many famous personalities.
Recently, some members of the Indian cricket team had visited the temple and prayed for a speedy recovery of their injured teammate, Rishabh Pant.
Earlier this year, India cricketers Suryakumar Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar performed Baba Mahakal's Bhasma aarti. “We prayed for the speedy recovery of Rishabh Pant. His comeback is very important to us,” Suryakumar had told reporters outside the temple.
