Heavy rumors are circulating in the media that Indian cricket legend Mohammad Azharuddin has left his wife Sangeeta Bijlani for Indian badminton player Jwala Gutta. Mohammad Azharuddin recently ended his 14-year old marriage to Sangeeta Bijlani and Jwala Gutta is being blamed for the split.
Extra marital affair
According to reports, both Azharuddin and Gutta had an extra-marital affair, while they were involved with their respective partners. Jwala is married to national badminton champion Chetan Anand, while Azharuddin was married to Bollywood actress Sangeeta Bijlani.
Reports suggest that Gutta and Azhar are often spotted cozying up to each other and have also been often spotted coming out together from Indian coach Pullela Gopichand’s academy.
Both Jwala and Azhar have denied the rumours. Speaking on the rumours, Jwala said, “I am disgusted by the reports. It possibly makes a good story but everything about it is false and baseless. How am I involved if Sangeeta has gone back to Mumbai? How does it matter to me? “I know they are being spread by people from the badminton association because I am not on good terms with them.”
Azharuddin too denied the rumours. He said, “These reports are completely rubbish, baseless and are in bad taste. I am very hurt by all these. I know Jwala, she is a good friend of mine and to write such reports, which are completely false and fabricated, is disgusting.”
Both of them might have denied the reports, but there is never any smoke, without some fire.
