Last year, the highly successful inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw the merger of Bollywood and cricket like never before. The IPL not just had some of the best cricketers of the world playing together, but also saw some of the biggest Bollywood stars cheering for them from the stands. So you had the likes of SRK cheering for his favorite Sourav Da, Preity Zinta giving Yuvraj a 'Jadoo Ki Jhappi' every time he played a match-winning knock and Akshay whistling for his fellow Delhi-mate Virender Sehwag.
However, long before IPL came into being, there has always been a connection between Bollywood and cricket especially because of the numerous cases of cricketers being linked to Bollywood beauties. While some of these real life stories culminated into marriage, many others died a slow death. Here's taking at sneak peek at some of the most discussed and talked about love stories between Bollywood actresses and cricketers.
Sharmila Tagore and Tiger Pataudi
Sharmila, the eternal beauty who starred in many hit films like Aradhana, Amar Prem, Daag and Safar married Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi at the peak of her film career. Apart from being the 'Nawab of Pataudi', Tiger (as he is fondly known as) was also the captain of the Indian cricket team. The duo have been happily married for many years now and even have 3 children out of which Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan have followed the footsteps of their mother choosing acting as a vocation.
