Since time immemorial cricket and Bollywood have had some sort of chemistry. The famous cricketers have had some sort of liking for the Bollywood beauties. There have been link ups, breakups, patch ups and marriages. Today we are here to look at some of the most famous affairs and what eventually happened to them.
Sharmila Tagore and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi:
This lovey dovey started back in 1965 when Sharmila Tagore was in Delhi for a shoot and was introduced to the great Indian cricket captain Mr. Pataudi. The cricketer lost his heart instantly and is said to have gifted her a refrigerator. This trick did not work on the Bollywood beauty and he had to send tons of roses to her regularly for 4 years after which she agreed and the two tied the knot. They have two really successful kids namely Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan. This couple ended up living a happy life.
Sangeeta Bijlani and Mohammad Azharuddin:
These two have had a relationship full of ups and down. The cricketer had an extra marital affair with this beauty and eventually both ended up getting married. The couple did not last long and recently got separated. What was surprising is that at the time the two were getting divorced, Salman Khan was seen supporting her long time X-girlfriend. Whatever it is, this one too proves that bollywood and cricket have a bonding which is meant to last long.
Kim Sharma and Yuvraj Singh:
Yuvraj Singh not just scores runs on the ground but is believed to be quite a character off the field as well. He has had a very active love life too as he is the only cricketer who will appear twice on the list.

This has been the spiciest relationship of recent times. The two are said to be madly in love. They visit each other when the other one is on tours. They are seen hand in hand at public places.
