India is crazy about two things- the first is cricket and the second is Bollywood. Fans are often seen going gaga about their favourite stars in our country. They can go to any extent to get a glimpse of their beloved celebrities.
Much before the Indian T20 League made the world of Bollywood and cricket collide with each other, the connection between the two had already made headlines on several occasions in the past. Here’s looking at seven such instances when cricketers and Bollywood actresses dated each other:
- MS Dhoni and Deepika Padukone
MS Dhoni emerged as the poster boy of Indian Cricket ever since he scored his first International hundred against Pakistan in 2005. The stylish batter became a national crush and had many female fans swooning over his stylish strokeplay. Among the many admirers of the ‘Captain Cool’, there was one popular name of the emerging Bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone.
The couple also walked the ramp in a fashion event together. Deepika had admitted being a true fan of MS Dhoni. There were rumours which said that Dhoni got rid of his long hair because Deepika did not like them. Their relationship didn’t end up being anywhere and Deepika was further rumoured to be dating Yuvraj Singh after Dhoni.
