Whether it is a Bollywood star owning an IPL team, a
cricketer and an actor appearing together for an advertisement, an
alleged affair between a cricketer and an actress, or a model promising
to bare all if her team wins, cricket and Bollywood have always shared
an amusing relationship. This trend has now taken shape in an
interesting way, as the endless line of fangirls who've lost their
hearts to young players now includes famous babes from B-Town.
Taking these romance rumors several steps
further is the news of India's head Bowler Zaheer Khan and Isha
Sherwani's marriage! Word of their tying the knot has been making rounds
around B-town soon after Zaheer emerged as the highest wicket taker in
the ICC Cricket World Cup Tournament 2011. With
such an epic list of love stories between India's two loves - cricket
and Bollywood, it's likely we won't wait long before at least one of
them inspires an adaption for the big screen! Which of these pairs would you like to see immortalized in a biopic?
long ago, we heard Shahrukh Khan teasing Harbhajan Singh
him "Tera ghar kab 'basra' hai?" (when are you settling down?), hinting,
in no modest words, at the buzz of a blossoming relationship between
the spinner and actress Geeta Basra
. Then, there's the heavily hyped
affair between Yuvraj Singh and Kim Sharma
. It seems like each day
brings with itself news of a new overlap between the world of India's
most beloved sport and its illustrious film industry. Some of the most
news-making Bolly-cricket romances of the recent past include Yuvraj
Singh and Amisha Patel, Yuvraj Singh - Deepika Padukone
, Virat Kohli -
Genelia D'souza, Mahendra Singh Dhoni
- Deepika Padukone
, and Mahendra
Singh Dhoni - Asin Thottumkal
amongst many others.
The latest to
join the league are young sensation Virat Kohli and newbie Sarah Jane
Dias; the duo have been spotted together at numerous parties and we have
even heard that when they are not together, they are constantly on the
phone with one another!
Another alleged couple who have been
denying such rumors are India's dancing cricketer S.Sreesanth and Riya
Sen. Reportedly, the two came close while shooting for a jewelery
commercial a year back. Talk of their wedding is in the air, while they
themselves have thus far clung to the cliched 'just good friends'.
However, there is plenty of evidence to affirm the rumors. Most notably,
Riya was spotted cheering Sreesanth's Kochi Tuskers during a clash
against Kolkota early in IPL 2011, even though the opponent was her home
