Cricket and Bollywood have always had a long connection. In fact, now, with Virat Kohli happily married to Anushka Sharma, the interest in the love lives of cricketers and their link-ups with Bollywood actresses have gone up even further.
The latest couple to be in the spotlight is cricketer KL Rahul and Sonal Chauhan who are rumoured to be dating. A few gossip columns had pointed to a relationship budding between the 27-year-old cricketer and the pretty Jannat actress however, putting a dampener on all the stories, Sonal quashed the rumours.
In a report on the entertainment portal Bollywood Bubble, Sonal reacted to her link-up with Rahul. "No, not at all. He is a very good cricketer. He is very talented and a nice guy," she said. However she neither denied nor accepted the stories in this vague response.
KL Rahul has been linked with other actresses in the past too notably, Nidhhi Agerwal, who debuted in Munna Michael opposite Tiger Shroff. He was also rumoured to be dating Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, who featured in 'Tere Do Naina' music video opposite Aparshakti Khurana.
More recently, KL Rahul was in the eye of a huge controversy when he appeared on Koffee With Karan with Hardik Pandya. Pandya and Rahul’s loose talk on women was slammed by one and all.
However, right now romance must be the last thing on Rahul’s mind as he is in England along with Team India where the Cricket World Cup will begin.
Sonal Chauhan has worked in films like Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap, 3G, Paltan and Jack and Dil. She is also being seen in the web-series Skyfire.
