We Indians have two things we love above all else: cricket and Bollywood. When the two come together, what can you expect other than pure magic both on screen and on the field? Today, we take a look at all the celebrities who have fallen in love with and gotten married to the cricketers!
1. Tiger Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore
This wedding was perhaps the most inspiring, glamorous and adorable wedding of its time. Their marriage was a unique union between the worlds of cricket and Bollywood. Sharmila was one of the most famous actresses of the time while Pataudi was not only the Nawab of Bollywood but also the captain of the Indian Cricket Team! This wedding was made more special by the fact that it was a union of two religions!
2. Hazel Keech and Yuvraj Singh
There’s is a match made in heaven. Yuvraj Singh has been linked with the likes of Deepika Padukone and Kim Sharma in the past so when the news of their wedding came to light, EVERYONE was surprised! The two tied the knot on 30 November, 2016 in Chandigarh!
3. Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge
Apparently Sagarika stole hearts not only on the hockey field but also on the cricket field! Right after the movie released, not much was heard about what this pretty damsel was up to until we saw her walk in as a couple with cricketer Zaheer Khan at Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech’s wedding. The couple got hitched on 23 November, 2017!
4. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli
How can I not mention this adorable couple? Four odd years they have been dating and every time the two are together, they cause a flutter of hearts! Their wedding has been one of the most talked about weddings in recent times. To avoid all the speculation, they had a hush hush wedding in Italy on 11 December, 2017!
5. Geeta Basra and Harbhajan Singh
After being ‘just good friends’ for some time, they finally proclaimed their relationship by getting married on October 29, 2015. Although their relationship went through some ups and downs in the past, the couple has happily settled down and are enjoying marital bliss. They even have a baby girl now! Such a happy family!

Karan Johar is Back With A Star Studded Cast For ‘Takht’
Karan Johar announced his upcoming film Takht set to release in 2020. The film features a star studded cast that includes Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. Karan used Twitter to provide an insight into the story line.
An incredible story embedded in history…
An epic battle for the majestic Mughal throne…
A story of a family, of ambition, of greed, of betrayal, of love & of succession…
TAKHT is about WAR for LOVE….@dharmamovies @apoorvamehta18 pic.twitter.com/BQg6SvdFfb
— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) August 9, 2018
Takht is labelled as a historical film which comes after the previous film Padmaavat, that was released earlier this year and caused a stir in the country.
Takht is a historical magnum opus about the Mughal Dynasty, a battle between brothers for the Mughal throne. The lead character is played by Ranveer Singh as Dara Shikoh and Vicky Kaushal as his brother, Aurangazeb. Kareena Kapoor will be starring as their sister Jahanara Begum and Alia Bhatt would be playing the lead love interest.
This film would be the third historical film for Ranveer Singh after Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani that were both blockbuster hits.
Karan Johar is well known for having a famed cast featured in his films, his previous hit Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featured Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Fawad Khan and Aishwarya Rai.
The cast members could not contain their excitement and went on to social media to talk about the film. Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt took to Twitter to announce their latest project and Janhvi Kapoor announced it on Instagram.
It was further announced that the screenplay is by Sumit Roy and dialogues by Hussain Haidry and Sumit Roy. It is unexpected for Karan to acknowledge the writers as the “heartbeat and soul of a film.” As writers require more recognition in Bollywood. Varun Grover (lyricist) and Neeraj Ghaywan (director) have been lobbying for writers getting the recognition they deserve by producers for a long time.
The Screenplay is by SUMIT ROY! Dialogues by HUSSAIN HAIDRY,SUMIT ROY! And thanks to @NotSoSnob for bringing these talents to us at @DharmaMovies ! An exciting journey ahead….WRITERS are the heartbeat and soul of a film! These gentlemen lead all the way…. pic.twitter.com/hyTucBmKaG

Bhumi Pednekar shared her excitement regarding the magnum opus “It’s a great honour for me to be working such great actors and to be directed by a veteran. I am a very big Karan Johar fan ever since I was a child. So honestly, it’s very special feeling and it’s still sinking in. I am still dealing with it and I am just so nervous about the film.”
Farah Khan congratulated Karan Johar for the film via a tweet.

Kajal Aggarawal And Bollywood Stars Show How To Kiki
Kajal Aggarawal shows us how to do the #KikiChallenge in a safe way. The #KikiChallenge quickly become popular over the internet after Drake released his song In My Feelings from his latest album Scorpion. The #KikiChallenge is when a person dances to the song beside a moving car, while someone is filming it from the car. First the Tide Pod Challenge now this? I’m scared for this generation.
Kajal Aggarawal along with her co star Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas created awareness regarding this dangerous challenge. The actors use a wheelchair instead of a car and end their video with a safety message.
Joining in the bandwagon, better late and safer! Our very conscious version. किकी we लव you (but we love rules more) . . . . . . . .

#ANDHADHUN Starring Tabu, Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte
The first motion poster of AndhaDhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte and Tabu just released! The film is directed by Sriram Raghavan co produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures, is set to release on 5 October 2018.
Andha andhe ko rasta dikhaaye, toh phir andha kaun? #AndhaDhun produced by @Viacom18Movies & @MatchboxPix releases in cinemas near you on 5th October, 2018. @ayushmannk @radhika_apte #Tabu #SriramRaghavan @zeemusiccompany pic.twitter.com/PtHRzvflaX
— AndhaDhun (@AndhadhunFilm) August 17, 2018
Ayushmann Khurrana is moving away from his comfort zone after acting in romcoms such as Vicky Donor, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Meri Pyaari Bindu. He plays a blind pianist in this latest film.
“It (doing Andhadhun) was a deliberate decision. I think it is not important to reinvent yourself with every film. Actors probably take themselves too seriously thinking, ‘I have to be different in every film’. But more than seeing you differently, the audience wants to see you doing a different story. Apart from that, you can reinvent yourself after establishing yourself in a particular genre,” the actor said.
Oh it’s not easy when you have to match up to Sriram Raghavan’s string of badass film titles but we all gave it a try! Presenting #AndhaDhun! https://t.co/NlVTNA6dVO @andhadhunfilm @radhika_apte #Tabu #SriramRaghavan @Viacom18Movies @Matchboxpix @ZeeMusicCompany pic.twitter.com/javunbzlOq
— Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) June 19, 2018
The first look of the film will be revealed on soon. Andhadhun will be set in Pune and the shoot is almost complete. Talking about the film’s title, the director, Sriram Raghavan said, “We are punning with the title as Ayushmann plays a blind pianist. It goes well with the story too. We had a lot of options in our mind, including Shoot The Piano Player, but the producers weren’t keen on using an English title. I know the real word is ‘Andhadhund’, but the ‘D’ is silent for us.”
We are so excited to see Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte together! Are you?
#DEEPVEER Are Getting Married At This Beautiful Location
Deepika Padukone’s and Ranveer Singh’s wedding is the most awaited event of Bollywood. The star duo have been very discreet about their wedding details, which are giving rise to many rumours. According to Filmfare, the duo are going to seal the deal at Lake Como, in Italy.
A source close to the couple has reportedly informed Filmfare, #DeepVeer are tying the knot on November 20th. That is only in three months, we are counting down the days to the event. The wedding is going to be a small intimate affair, the source informed Filmfare, “It’s a very special day for both Ranveer and Deepika which is why they just want the close ones to be present for their wedding ceremony. Mostly it will be their families and a few close friends. The guest list consists of merely 30 people and that’s exactly how these two want it. Italy is a favourite destination of both Ranveer and Deepika so they want to keep their big day more of a private affair.”
The famous singer John Legend got married to Chrissy Teigen at Lake Como. We cannot wait to see the beautiful couple at this breathtaking location.
After the small wedding in Italy, the couple are going to hold grand receptions in India. One will be held in Deepika’s hometown Bengaluru and the other will be held in Mumbai.
The couple were congratulated by Kabir Bedi on twitter.

10 Iconic Sri Devi Looks
Sri Devi was the perfect mix of talent and beauty. She could charm anybody with those big expressive eyes and her attractive smile. Sri Devi pulled off every look, with an exceptional amount of pizzazz. She did it all so effortlessly. Sri Devi was a fashion icon for her generation. On her birthday we celebrate her by looking back at ten of her most iconic looks.
The Hawa Hawai! How can we forget about her most iconic moment till date? The gold dress and the brilliant head piece were definitely hard to pull off, but the only person that could rock it and look absolutely stunning is Sri Devi.
This image has got me awestruck. Her eyes have so much expression, the big lashes only emphasise her doe eyes. The red lips with the red outfit is a classic.
Sri Devi looked like a literal goddess when she donned beautiful jewellery and blinged out outfits in the film Himmatwala.
Her ensemble from the film Chaalbaaz has to be my personal favourite. Sri Devi’s monochromatic outfit, with the big hoops, gives her a badass look.
Sri Devi definitely did make everyone run out and copy her look with a sleeveless blouse and a pearl necklace when she wore it in the film Chandni. She was definitely an iconic trend setter.
The oversized patterned shirt with a trouser worked extremely well with her character in the film Gumraah. The short hair suited emphasised her facial structure, giving her a powerful look.
The innocent look in her film Khuda Gawaah; was completed when she adorned minimal jewellery and paired it with subtle makeup.
Sri Devi was definitely a Roop Ki Rani in the film Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja. The big hair and lashes, with a bold lipstick, complemented her snazzy gown.
In the film Lamhe the beautiful actress emphasises her good looks, with the perfect amount of makeup, and beautiful outfits.
Her character in English Vinglish was fearless and brave, she managed to pull that look off with a lot of class. The minimal makeup and traditional outfit suited Sri Devi very much.
