Only two things are hugely popular in India – Bollywood and cricket and over the years we have seen some strong link ups between the two. Cricketers marrying/dating actress is not a new thing, in fact it goes back to the times of Vivian Richards who had an affair with Indian actress Neena Gupta. Though the two did not get married, they do have a love child, Masaba Gupta. Other link ups include Ravi Shastri-Amrita Singh, Sourav Ganguly-Nagma, Wasim Akram-Sushmita Sen and many more. Currently cricketer Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh are dating bollywood actresses Isha Sharvani and Geeta Basra respectively and news is that both the couples are going to tie the knot this year. The latest to join the bandwagon is cricketer Suresh Raina and actress Anushka Sharma.
It is being said that the two met in London during India’s tour of England and have remained in touch ever since. Anushka was earlier linked to her Band Baaja Baarat co-star Ranveer Singh. The two were reportedly in a relationship but it didn’t work out and they had to part ways. Suresh Raina was also linked to union ministerPraful Patel’s daughter but the cricketer had refrained from commenting on his personal life. Anushka has however denied this link up. According to her she is not dating anyone and is currently single. It is known that the actress is quite friendly with the wife of Indian skipper MS Dhoni.
So are they dating or not? Is this just a rumor or has some truth to it? Well, we will leave that to time!
