CRICKETERS and actresses have always made for great pairs as has been proved time and again. But hardly had we recovered from the surprise link-up of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli than we heard of another hot couple allegedly pairing up. This time it’s Indian cricket’s eternal Casanova and Virat’s hot teammate Yuvraj Singh and the lucky woman is allegedly none other than Neha Dhupia!
Tabloids in Mumbai were abuzz with stories about how Neha and Yuvi arrived together at the birthday party thrown by Sophie Choudry. A news website even reported that that this is not the first time that the duo has been spotted together.
One doesn’t know when and where this couple exactly met and the friendship allegedly took another turn but sources say Neha and Yuvraj have known each other for a while. A cricket journalist recounts how he had bumped into Neha years ago at Yuvraj’s hotel when the latter was playing a game in the city. “They seemed quite comfortable with each other even then,” the scribe said. The two also often interact on Twitter and indulge in friendly banter.
Of course, knowing Yuvraj, it’s not surprising that he has taken a shine to an actress and vice-versa. He is after all, one of the most eligible bachelors in the country and his fight against cancer makes him an inspirational figure too. In the past he had a long relationship with Kim Sharma and it was rumoured that the two were planning to get married too. Apparently, it was his mother’s objection to an actress bahu that ultimately took a toll on the relationship. He was briefly linked to Deepika Padukone, Anusha Dandekar, model Akshara Gowda and even Preity Zinta, the owner of the Kings 11 Punjab, his former IPL team.
The very hot Neha Dhupia, on the other hand, hasn’t been linked to many men but going by her track record it appears she does have a thing for a sportspersons. Neha has previously dated squash player Ritwik Bhattacharya but she split with him and then dated a Venezuelan James Sylvester.
So is this just another rumour or is there something brewing between the two hot singletons? Though friends of the couple have refuted the rumours, others insist there definitely is something going on between the two.
With Virat already having bowled one Bollywood maiden over, let’s see if it’s Yuvi’s turn next!
