Believe it or not, the charming and good-looking former cricketer-turned-actor Salil Ankola has become grandfather. Salil’s daughter Sana gave birth to a baby girl this week. The former cricketer announced the news on Instagram by sharing an old photo of him with baby Sana in his arm, and another with his grown-up daughter holding her newborn in her arms.
The thrilled new grand father posted the photo and wrote:
“My baby’s baby. Time flies, not long back I had my baby Sana in my arms and now Sana has her baby daughter RIANA in her arms. Today is the happiest day of my life @riaankola.”
The 50-year-old cricketer’s daughter is married to former cricketer Sandeep Patil’s actor-son, Chirag. Interestingly, Patil and Ankola, who played Ranji for different teams were part of the 1996 India cricket team against England where Patil was the coach.
