Cricketers have been known for their performance, but have also been famous for their personal lives, diet, lifestyle and more. We all want to know more about cricketers!
Here are Top 7 Cricketers who had an affair with Bollywood Actresses:
7. Zaheer Khan – Isha Sharvani
One of the steadiest romances of the ‘cricket pitch-tinsel town’ alliance. They had an 8-year-long relationship and faced ups and downs. People around the couple kind were expecting them to tie knots. So, it came as a shock when the duo announced separation! Both of them have moved on in their respective lives and the cricketer is now engaged to Chak De India actress Sagarika Ghatge.
6. Sourav Ganguly – Nagma
This relation gathered a lot of media and fan attention. With media attention starting to take a toll on Sourav’s flourishing career, he ended his love story by marrying his present wife Dona. While Sourav maintained a ‘No Comments’ relation on this personal issue, Nagma went on speaking publicly that there was indeed something between her and the Sourav. The story obviously did not have a happy ending.
5. Rohit Sharma – Sofia Hayat
We know that both, the news of the hitman dating Sofia Hayat and her having done Bollywood movies are shocking. It was back in 2012 Sofia revealed that she had dated Rohit and that it was over! While she did not give the exact reason behind their breakup, she said that “she was looking for a gentleman this time”. Interestingly, five years after all this, Sofia blocked Rohit on twitter.
4. Ravi Shastri – Amrita Singh
Ravi was already a darling amongst the masses for both his cricket strokes and looks. Bollywood actress Amrita too was slowly finding her foothold in the film industry during the late 80s. They fell in love and candidly confessed their feelings for each other in front of the camera. But unfortunately, their romance was short-lived, when Ravi married Ritu in 1990. A few years later Amrita got married to actor Saif Ali Khan.
3. Neena Gupta – Vivian Richards
One of the legends in International cricket, Sir Viv Richards, and Bollywood actress, Neena Gupta, shared an unconventional relationship. They were secretly involved even though he was married at that time. The Indian actress fell in love with Viv Richards, and what followed was a series of gossip and rumours. Even though Neena and Vivian never tied the knot, they maintained a serious relationship. And, next came the news of the birth of their daughter Masaba, fashion designer.
2. Yuvraj Singh – Deepika Padukone | Kim Sharma
Yuvi has always been known to be a charmer amongst ladies.
While Yuvraj was maintaining his ‘just good friends’ stance, one could simply not ignore his great chemistry with Kim and Deepika. While his relationship with Kim was steady and long, it was fairly short-lived with Deepika. However, the sizzle in both love stories fizzled out. And today, Deepika has married Ranveer Singh. On the other hand, Kim married businessman Ali Punjani and moved to Kenya.
