It’s time for another jugalbandi between the cricket world and Bollywood. That’s right! Another young couple bit the dust recently. Cricketer and current Delhi Daredevils captain, Zaheer Khan got engaged to longtime girlfriend and actress Sagarika Ghatge. Congratulations to the couple!
Hitched for life!
The cricketer announced his engagement with the Chak de India! actress recently which got the fans super excited. The couple, always maintained a hush hush tone about their relationship.
No more hiding!
Although, that doesn’t mean we don’t have the snoop! They were often spotted together publicly and were even seen hand in hand at Yuvraj Singh’s wedding. However, Sagarika, like a quintessential actress kept denying the rumour mills. No more hiding, Sagarika!
What's happening here?
While many were busy congratulating the couple, Anil Kumble and the Zaheer’s team, Delhi Daredevils made a very funny faux pass! Instead of tagging Sagarika Ghatge, they instead tagged journalist Sagarika Ghosh. Before they knew it, Twitteratis were already in splits!W
Hush hush relationship
The two started dating after they met through common friends and hit it off. Both are very private about their lives and hence, not much is known about them!
The proposal story
Ask the bride to be about how the bowler proposed and she had this to say:
“It was a surprise for me too as it came right in the middle of the IPL season. We wanted to get away from the city as we had two days off in between matches. So he flew me to Goa for a day and that’s how the engagement happened.”
And, they have a date!
The couple , who got engaged in April have finally closed in on a wedding date and we have something exciting in stores at the end of 2017! Sagarika, in a recent interview said this:
“It could be towards the year end or a little earlier. We have shortlisted a few days but are yet to zero in on D-day.”
Sports, meet entertainment!
With their newly announced engagement, they joined the ‘Bollywood meets Cricket club’.
Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra
Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra too got married in 2015 and were blessed with a baby girl, Hinaya in 2016.
A wedding saga!
Last year, it was Yuvraj Singh who married girlfriend Hazel Keech in an elaborate wedding , which became the talk of the town.
An iconic match for sure!
Before all this, it was Sharmila Tagore who left a lot of people broken hearted when she got married to ace cricketer and Pataudi nawab Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. Belive it or not, cricket and bollywood are more connected than you think!
Now, with all this wedding buzz, we can only guess who will be the next player to get hitched! Virat and Anushka, here’s looking at you!
