India all-rounder Vijay Shankar got married to his fiancé Vaishali Visweswaran in a close ceremony on Thursday. On the occasion, Shankar’s current Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) wished him a “happy and blessed married life.” SRH shared a picture of the occasion in which the couple can be seen taking part in a traditional ceremony in the presence of close family members and relatives. The ceremony appears to be low-key considering the restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

One user said that Visweswaran is already looking at Shankar in a way like they have been married for quite some time.

Another user poked fun at him in a very similar manner, pointing out the same thing. He talked about the serious look on the bride’s face as if Shankar read the mantras wrong.
That’s some serious look he is getting from the bride … did he not pronounce a mantra correctly?
