Mumbai: Love blossoming between Bollywood stars and cricketers is now an age-old tale. Whether it be the fairytale connection between Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore or the recent modern-day romance between Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma who tied the knot in an intimate and beautiful Italian wedding and gave the entire country something to sigh over for days, this union between cricket and Bollywood is harmonious and something we can all get behind.
In a recent report, according to media report, another Bollywood and cricket couple is on the rise and they are said to be dating from the past two years.
