First Childhood Friend, Then Girlfriend And Now Wife

One of the most versatile and dependable players of the Indian team off late has been Ajinkya Rahane. The Mumbai-based batsman has played so many memorable innings in the whites of India and in the limited overs format as well.

He is a very soft-spoken and a true gentleman of the game as well. Despite his fame and success, Rahane remains grounded as ever and he owes a lot of his success to his wife, with whom he shares a very sweet love story.

Rahane is married to Radhika Dhopavkar and he shares a very sweet story with her. Both Rahane and his wife were from the same neighbourhood in Mumbai even when he was a developing player with the Mumbai team.

Friendship first:


Even now when Ajinkya Rahane is asked about his wife, he says that he likes her as his friend first as they were first good buddies before eventually going on to become husband and wife. Rahane and Radhika had a very good friendship where he would meet her often as they were growing up in the city.

Soon, their love blossomed into something more and they decided that they wanted to get married. Their parents were totally fine with their decision and they held a grand wedding in 2014 at Mumbai where a lot of cricketing stars attended. Following the wedding, they had a reception at the MCA with many members of the fraternity present. It has been close to three years since their wedding and they are still close than ever.

One of the most admired couples:


Ajinkya and Radhika are very popular among Indian cricket fans because Rahane keep sharing their pictures on his social media profiles. Radhika comes across as a very passionate person who finds it difficult to hide her emotions when Ajinkya does well with his bat. We have seen Radhika jump in the air to celebrate Jinx’s hundreds and we have also seen her shedding a few happy tears.
