Is Sunil Chhetri Married? | How Sunil Married His Biggest Fan?

The Indian forward lives out his married life with his beautiful wife Sonam Bhattacharya. Looking deep into his love life, he is such a blessed person and so is his life partner.

You have such an amazing love story that everyone can be jealous of.

First meeting – dating

Sunil and Sonam first met when the former was 18 and the latter was only 15. Sonam made a move first by texting on his phone.

According to the message, the player met her. However, Chhetri cut the session time short when he realized that Sonam was still a child.

Despite the age difference, the two continued to chat, which over time brought them even closer.

After two months, Sunil was amazed to learn that he was falling in love with Sonam, his trainer, daughter of Mohun Bagan.

He knew the truth when he received the call from a familiar number while he was fixing the coach’s cell phone.

So Sunil couldn’t handle the fact that the manager would end his career if he knew about it. As a result, the athlete called Sonam and decided to move away.

However, Sunil could not deny fate and his feelings towards Sonam. Their hide-and-seek relationship lasted for almost 13 years.

Years passed and our bond grew stronger. As I grew in my career, she was always there to calm my fears and be my backbone. We grew up together and fell in love in the process.


After dating Sonam for a long time, Sunil plucked up courage and sought approval to marry Sonam’s father and his trainer Mohun Bagan. To his surprise, Chhetri’s trainer took it easy and nodded appreciatively.

Within months, the couple tied the knot, per their parents’ approval.

Likewise, the bride and groom married according to their traditions. The wedding ceremony took place on December 4, 2017 in a lavish ceremony in Kolkata.

Sunil wore Nepali clothing while Sonam wore the red sari. Later, the striker changed into Bengali attire.
