Jwala Gutta set to marry long-time boyfriend and actor Vishnu Vishal Former Commonwealth Games champion and World Championship bronze medalist Jwala Gutta will be getting married to her boyfriend Vishnu Vishal on April 22. The former ace badminton doubles player has been in a relationship with the Tamil actor for a long time.

The duo announced their engagement last year in September after a long period of courtship. The two regularly shared pictures of themselves on social media.

“With the blessings of our families, it gives us immense joy in sharing the news of our marriage, in a private affair in presence of near and dear…We are getting married.

“LIFE IS A JOURNEY….EMBRACE IT…HAVE FAITH AND TAKE THE LEAP…. Need all your love and support as always… @Guttajwala #JWALAVISHED,” Vishal wrote on his Twitter account.

Jwala Gutta had formed a very competent women’s doubles pair with Ashwini Ponnappa. The two players had their most memorable moment when they captured the gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

While Jwala Gutta has gone away from the game, Ashwini continues to remain active on the international circuit. She regularly partners N Sikki Reddy in women’s doubles and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy in mixed doubles.

Jwala Gutta also had a foray into the world of showbiz when she appeared in a dance number of a Telugu film.

Since the break up of the Gutta-Ashwini pair, India hasn’t had much success in the doubles category. Jwala has kept herself in the news with interventions on topics beyond the scope of sports.

Vishal has been active in cinema and his most recent release has been ‘Kaadan’, a Tamil movie starring Rana Daggubati that has been released in Hindi as ‘Haathi Mere Saathi.’
