Atanu Das and Deepika Kumari were batchmates at the Tata Academy in Jamshedpur. Deepika Kumari & Atanu Das met for the first time in 2008.
They weren’t friends as there existed a language barrier between them. But gradually they got to know each other and ironed out their differences by talking to each other.
They both participated in the 2016 Rio Olympics together but the thought of dating didn’t strike them. In 2017, 10 yr after they met for the first time, they fell in love.
They tied the knot on June 30 2020 in a quiet ceremony in Deepika’s hometown, Ranchi. The duo is now the first Indian couple to take part in the same discipline in an Olympic Games.
