The relationship between Indian Cricket Team and Bollywood celebrities

+7 votes

It will be a gross mistake if you believe that glamour and cricket have mixed only after the incarnation of the IPL (Indian Premier League), the relations between Bollywood and Cricket are existing for ages now. Just check out these jodis who are from Bollywood and Cricket and made a rocking pair.There have been numerous affairs between them but only a few have managed to awaken a great deal of media curiosity due to the glamour attached to both the professions.


Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma

Virat and Anushka, who stayed strong through many ups and downs, are apparently no longer together.Not all cricketer-actress romances culminate in heartbreak though.


Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore

         Back in the 1960s, when the suave Nawab of Pataudi and Indian captain met Bollywood's A-lister diva, sparks were inevitable.While neither -- Sharmila or 'Tiger' Pataudi's -- parents lend instant approval to this inter-religious match, love won against all odds.The classy husband and wife pair and parents to 3 children (Saif, Soha and Saba), stayed happily married for over four decades till Pataudi's demise in 2011.


Manoj Prabhakar and Farheen

         Remember Farheen -- the Madhuri Dixit-lookalike Ronit Roy wooed amidst tremendous parental opposition in Jaan Tere Naam. Farheen's involvement with the controversial, much-married Indian bowler Manoj Prabhakar led to the latter's ugly divorce with first wife Sandhya and her disappearance from the movie scene.Despite the obstacles, the duo subsequently tied the knot and now reside in Delhi with teenaged sons named as Rahil and Manavansh and as well as Rahul, Prabhakar's son from his earlier marriage, his wife and baby.  Now  they all live together.


Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra

            In a classic case of clean bowled, cricketer Harbhajan Singh fell head over heels for The Train actress Geeta Basra whom he met through common friends.Even so, the shy spinner preferred to keep his affair under wraps in public.  The couple dated for a good 8 years before making it official last year around a traditional gurudwara ceremony inBhajji's hometown, Jalandhar.


Anirudha Srikkanth and Arthi Venkatesh

           Following in the footsteps of a famous batsman father is not an easy job but Krish Srikkanth's Anirudha is trying his best.Best known for scoring quick runs during his IPL stint as Chennai Super Kings opener, Aniruddha and his gorgeous model wife Arthi Venkatesh are quite the IT couple in Chennai's social circles. Arthi, her website states, 'has over 250 runway shows and 300 plus photoshoots to her credit.'


Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech

           Yuvraj Singh, the dream boy now found his queen Hazel Keech. UK-based Keech, who's acted in Salman Khan-starrer Bodyguard and competed in the 7th season of reality show, Bigg Boss.
Last November, these couple got engaged in a private ceremony at Bali.Needless to say, we are certainly looking forward to their big day sometime this year.

It's time again when Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra are both trending for their respective films, albeit not for any film together. Once-upon-a-time, media was abuzz with gossip of a roaring affair between the two, and how they've been inseparable like passionate lovers.

But now, past couple of years -- neither do we hear any rumour of their relationship, nor do we spot SRK and PC ever together. They are nowhere to be seen in a single frame - either at SRK's bash, or be it PC's recent birthday bash, any award ceremony....they are just miles apart.

Here are pics that proved they've been more than friends.....

When SRK kissed Priyanka Chopra on her cheek in full public view, and the people around were awestruck, wondering if all the gossip has some truth to it.

It was during the Filmfare Awards 2013 when Priyanka planted a neat kiss on SRK's cheek when the two were on the stage and Khan was anchoring. Though it was a comic act, it got many wondering as to 'What's going on?'

At one of the award ceremonies later, SRK kissed PC's hands out of chivalry, but then Gauri and many people from the film fraternity did not appreciate Khan's special gesture for his co-actress.

Of late, Pee Cee began to be spotted as SRK's arm candy at most of his public appearances, including his IPL matches too. While Gauri would be conspicuous by her absence, PC would be always seen with him - looking happier than ever.

There were even rumours of a midnight nikaah (since SRK's religion allows a man to �be married more than once, without having to dismantle his first marriage) upon the request of PC's then ailing father. The media reports stated how Gauri and SRK's marriage was going through a rough patch owing to his closeness with PC, how Karan Johar and a majority of the film frateity almost boycotted Priyanka, tagging her as a home-breaker, et al.

Another picture of SRK and PC during one of the events after the release of their film Don 2. Their body language added much fuel to the ongoing fire of gossips by tabloids and magazines.

Their camarederie and onscreen chemistry came to an end soon, after all the stormy controversies regarding their affair, private midnight nikaah, differences with Gauri, etc.

But now, it's been years since we saw any photo (leave alone the warmth they used to share) of the two of them together -- at any event or a party or an awards ceremony or a concert tour.
