When Bollywood Met Indian Cricketers

There is a strange but very romantic connection between Bollywood and Indian Cricket Players. Though the recent headlines talk about India captain Virat Kohli’s marriage to Bollywood star Anushka Sharma, but the country has a long history of marriages between cricket players and movie stars.

The trend was started by Sharmila Tagore, who married the former India Captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi in late 60’s.

On 27 December 1968, Sharmila Tagore married Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, the Nawab of Pataudi and former captain of the Indian cricket team, in a Nikah ceremony held on 27 December 1969. They had three children: Saif Ali Khan, Saba Ali Khan, and Soha Ali Khan.

The second most celebrated and popular couple was Reena Roy and Mohsin Khan when they tied the knot in 1983. The couple has a daughter Sanam. The couple later divorced, but not before an ugly custody battle over the daughter, which apparently Reena won.

The most celebrated and controversial wedding of Actress Sangeeta Bijlani and Mohd Azharuddin came to surface. Sangeeta was a famous model and actress, who married the troubled Indian cricketer turned politician Azharuddin on November 14, 1996. Back in the’90s, their affair made headlines for a very long time.

In recent time, Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh tied the knot with popular actress Geeta Basra, after dating for a couple of years. The couple is blessed with an adorable girl child. The couple tries and stays away from the limelight.

Then, Yuvraj Singh got married to Hazel Keech on November 12, 2015. The actress Hazel is British−Mauritian of Indian origin; she adopted the name "Gurbasant Kaur", which was given to her by Sant Balvinder Singh during the wedding ceremony.

On 24 April 2017, Zaheer Khan announced on his engagement to actress Sagarika Ghatge. The couple got married on 23 November 2017. The couple dated for the longest before settling down in matrimony.

And finally, the much talked about and grand wedding for Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli, also known as Virushka, took place in Italy in December 2017.

Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s romantic relationship has attracted substantial media coverage in India, though she has been reluctant to publicly talk about it. The couple married in Italy on 11 December 2017 and hosted back to back two big reception’s here in India.
