Bollywood and cricket‘s relation dates back to…well, times immemorial. Over the years there have been several instances where actresses and cricketers have been romantically involved. Some of them turned out to be ‘happily ever after’ while others were just plain tittle-tattles!
Cricketer KL Rahul and Sonal Chauhan have also been rumoured to be dating since quite some time. Speculations about the 27-year-old cricketer and the Jannat actress began circulating in news media recently. However, reacting to gossip column headlines, Chauhan quashed any romantic association with Rahul.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, when Sonal was asked to comment about the same, she set the record straight once and for all and said that there is no truth to the rumours.
Sonal has denied any such rumours about her dating the cricketer and said, “No, not at all. He is a very good cricketer. He is very talented and a nice guy.”
Earlier, the top-order batsman was linked up with Alia Bhatt’s BFF Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, who featured in Tere Do Naina music video opposite actor Aparshakti Khurana.
She too denied the rumours of them dating a while ago.
Talking about his link-ups, the top-order batsman was also linked up with Bollywood actress Nidhhi Agerwal, who debuted in Munna Michael opposite Tiger Shroff. However, even this turned out to be a rumour when the couple in question denied any authenticity of this flying gossip.
Rahul, currently in England with team India, is all set to take on nine other cricketing nations to win the World Cup trophy. India will play their first match against South Africa on June 5. During the warm-up match at ICC World Cup 2019 against Bangladesh, Rahul scored 108 runs off 99 balls. Team India went onto win that match by 95 runs and look in-shape to have a good World Cup campaign.
