Team India and Baroda’s all-rounder Yusuf Pathan is all set to tie the wedding knot with Mumbai-based physiotherapist Afreen on March 27 in Mumbai, reports say.
Yusuf and Afreen reportedly got engaged at a very private ceremony at a farmhouse in Nadiad, 60 kms from Vadodara on March 25, 2012.
"On the evening of March 24, there is dawat at Yusuf's residence for family members and very close relatives. The famous mouth-watering biryani prepared at their residence will be one of the highlights of the evening. On March 26, the baraat will leave for Mumbai, where the wedding is set to take place the next day," a close family friend of the Pathans is quoted as saying by TOI.
Afreen has been born and brought up in Mumbai but practices physiotherapy in Vadodara. The marriage is an arranged one and the match was decided after both families met each other.
Both the brothers Yusuf and Irfan Pathan have not yet spoken openly about it. The engagement too was a quiet affair; and the wedding too could be a quiet one with very close relatives and friends attending the function.
"It hasn't been finalized yet. Once they are back from Mumbai, there are plans to host a grand reception. It will be held either at a posh hotel in Vadodara or at their farmhouse in Nadiad," adds a source about the reception.
