Cricket and Bollywood: Top 10 love stories

Zaheer Khan and Isha Sharvani: Zaheer Khan, one of the most eligible bachelors in Team India, is all set to marry his long-time girlfriend and Bollywood actress Isha Sharvani. According to reports, marriage is likely to happen in March.
Zaheer had first met Isha in 2005, soon after her Bollywood debut in Subhash Ghai's movie Kisna. They split after dating for two years. They got back together in 2010 and since then have been going strong.

Yuvraj Singh and Kim Sharma: Yuvraj Singh might have had various flings but shared his most sincere and lasting relationship with actress Kim Sharma. The pressure of maintaining a hi-profile relationship got to them and both kept a low profile until the news of a spat between the two broke out. Recently on a TV show, Yuvraj had admitted that Kim, who is married to a Kenyan businessman, was the most caring girlfriend.

Yuvraj Singh and Deepika Padukone: There were also reports of Yuvraj dating Deepika Padukone. On India's last tour of Australia in 2008, he was seen having a meal with the actress, who was shooting there for her film Bachna Ae Haseeno with Ranbir Kapoor. The relation between the two did not last long as while shooting for the film, Deepika and Ranbir fell in love and rest, as they say, is history.

Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra: Are they, are they not? We are talking about none other than the cricketer-actor jodi of Harbhajan Singh & Geeta Basra! First the rumours were about dating and now of an engagement. However, Miss Basra denied the reports and said that rumours of an engagement are harming her career, which is yet to take off.

Virat Kohli and Sarah Jane Dias: Though none of them have confirmed it, but there are reports of the two dating. The two met at a party last February and since then have grown fond of each other. They were seen together on various occasions.

Amrita Singh and Ravi Shastri: Amrita Singh was at the pinnacle of her career when she met Ravi Shastri. Shastri, who was a heartthrob of the country because of his talents and good looks, was also bowled over by her. She even cheered him from the stands at Sharjah. But their romance did not last and they parted ways. While Shastri married Ritu Singh, Amrita tied the knot with much younger Saif Ali Khan.

Nawab Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore: This was literally a story of a damsel being swept off her feet by her prince charming. Despite coming from two different religious backgrounds, they tied the knot in 1969. This perhaps is the first love story between Bollywood and Cricket.

Sangeeta Bijlani and Mohd Azharuddin: Sangeeta Bijlani was called a 'home breaker' for having an affair with India's then most loved captain Mohammed Azharuddin. But the former Miss India and film actress did not cave in. Azhar finally divorced his first wife and married Sangeeta in 1996.

Neena Gupta and Sir Viv Richards: Neena Gupta, a veteran actor and TV director, had a short and controversial relationship with West Indies cricket legend Sir Vivian Richards. Although they did not marry, they are proud parents of Masaba Gupta, one of India's most talented young fashion designers.

Reena Roy and Mohsin Khan: Yesteryear Bollywood beauty Reena Roy had married Pakistani cricketer Mohsin Khan in 1983. She quit films for a happy married life, but that was not to be. They divorced and Reena Roy returned to films in 1993.
