Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is all set to tie the knot with New Delhi-based Natasha Jain, in a simple ceremony in late October or early November this year.

The sources close to Gambhir informed that it is an arranged marriage and 29-year-old Gambhir, and 27-year-old Natasha, who hails from a business family, were introduced early this year by their families.

“The wedding was fixed five-six months back. It will be a simple event, with not more than 100-200 invitees,” a source was quoted by the Hindustan Times.

Gambhir, who is also a big fan of Pakistan singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, has requested him to perform at his wedding.

“He likes Rahat but there are visa issues, so we may approach Atif Aslam as he is a big fan of his, too,” Gambhir s friend said.

New Delhi-based fashion designers Shantanu-Nikhil are expected to design the couple s wedding clothes.

“Natasha has met Shantanu-Nikhil a few times for her designs. The designers are also doing the clothes for the cocktail party. Natasha has requested something very subtle and stylish, and she has a keen interest in design herself. The designers are also readying Gautam s outfit,” a source informed.
