One of the most potent and prominent sweethearts of the shuttling world is the love story of Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap. The couple married in 2018 after a long journey of achievements, courtship and love for each other. Both Saina and Kashyap have been friends since their childhood days. 

The fondness and amicability between both Kashyap and Saina can be fathomed from the way Kashyap described her in an online Instagram live session, “We connected because we would always have the same mindset. Her every conversation was about badminton and I liked it.” A gold medalist in the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Parupalli Kashyap also thinks his love for Saina Nehwal inspired him to improve as a player. 

Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap met for the first time in 1997 when they practised together in Hyderabad. The two switched to train under the former All England champion and the current Head National team coach Pullela Gopichand when he opened his badminton academy in 2004. They began dating in the months leading up to the World Junior badminton championships that year.

The relationship with her better half was described by Kashyap as very ‘innocent and genuine’, years later while talking to ESPN. However, there was constant competition and grinding between both of them and a desire to excel each other. This competitive nature helped both of them to grow from strength to strength in their personal life as well as in their professional badminton career. 

Like every other relationship that exists, Saina also has stuck with Kashyap in his dark and difficult times as well. She served as Kashyap’s emotional rock while he dealt with the first of his major muscle injury. The amount of motivation and dedication that she poured during this time, was something that Kashyap has always told it proudly.
