This continues the wedding season for Indian cricketers, with fellow sportsmen also tying the knot.
Robin Uthappa married tennis player Sheethal Goutham in early March 2016, looking dapper in a three-piece blue suit while his bride stunned in a white strapless gown.
Mumbai Indians’ Dhawal Kulkarni also tied the knot with Shradha Kharpude of Femina magazine in St Regis Hotel, lavishly decorated with beautiful flowers.
Mohit and Shweta got engaged in January 2016, and the bowler announced the news to the public through a Facebook post.
Reports suggest that Shweta is a hotel management student, and is currently pursuing her course in Kolkata.
He previously played for Chennai Super Kings, which has been suspended from the IPL since 2015 for illegal betting and match-fixing.
For the 2016 season, he will join Kings XI Punjab, owned by actress Preity Zinta who also got hitched not long ago.
Currently recovering from an ankle injury, he will be missed in the ICC World T20.
Congratulations to the lovely newlyweds, and wish them a lifetime of happiness!
