In a nation which prides itself as cricket crazy, the scrutiny and interest in cricketer's lives is quite obvious and natural. Indians are obsessed with two things-Bollywood and cricket and when the two come together, it's like a double bonanza for them. Cricketers are often found losing their heart for our Bollywood babes.
Bollywood film industry has seen many matrimonies of cricket players and Bollywood actresses. The most famous one would be that of Sharmila Tagore and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and that of Sangeeta Bijlani and Mohammed Azaruddin. While the latter's marriage din't work, there are many couples who are enjoying a happy marriage.
The people are always curious to know whom our beloved cricketers are dating and with whom they have taken eternal vow of marriage. Recently Suresh Raina was linked to Shruti Hassan and the rumour even went to say that the duo shared a mature relationship but the cricketer tweeted,"Too many media reports which no one even tries to confirm. This is to clear once & for all. I'm not dating ANYONE (sic)."
However, this is not the first time, he has been linked with someone. He was rumoured to be dating Poorna Patel, Anushka Sharma and Rakhi Sawant in the past. We can't for sure say that the cricketer is telling the truth because no celebrity really wants to share the personal details of their life especially when these people are not sure whom they end up marrying.
