Sushmita-Wasim Akram: EK HASEENA EK KHILADI!


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, April 7 -- Morning my mint ki golis! How goes it with you? It's going pretty hectic for moi. But I'm not complaining for I believe; the more the merrier. I'm talking about all those baatein that are buzzing from tinsel town. So let me get straight to the point, lest I forget something because my ears are facing an information explosion currently. Read on dahlings..

Oi oi... Looks like there's too much of ek khiladi ek haseena happening these days. Forget the Shoaib Malik-Sania Mirza match-fixing, says my birdy, adding that there's more than just good friendship between apni Sushmita Sen and former Paksitan cricket captain, Wasim Akram. The two sitaras, who judged a reality dance show featuring some cricketers and television actresses, kept in touch on and off after it concluded over a year and a half ago. Suna hai, they started connecting more regularly after Akram signed on as the bowling coach for Shah Rukh Khan's IPL team, Kolkata Knight Riders.

My birdy insists that Ms Sen may go hoarse denying that there's nothing happening with Akram... but it was at his insistence that she went for a dekko of a match recently. Itna hi nahin, I'm also informed that the abhinetri sends text messages to the khiladi very often, when his Knight Riders are playing. So why the denials? Birdy claims that it's way too early for Sen and Akram to let any hint out in the open now. Seems they want to bide their time before they figure out how to take their close friendship further. Hmm.
