A shimmering embroidered curtain falls on one of the speculated-upon celebrity-romances in recent times.
Cricketer Harbhajan Singh and actress Geeta Basra who were rumoured to be a pair for more than 8 years now, have finally made it official.
In a ceremony attended by close relatives and friends, the couple exchanged marriage vows through Sikh rituals at a Gurdwara in Jalandhar. The wedding was attended by no member of the film industry.
Says a source from Jalandhar, “Only Sachin Tendulkar and his wife from Harbhajan’s side was seen. No one from the entertainment industry attended from Geeta’s side.”
A lavish reception was hosted later during the day.
Geeta and Harbhajan never acknowledged their relationship in public.
However on July 3 this year, as cricketer Harbhajan Singh turned 35 he went public with his long-standing relationship with his girlfriend actress Geeta Basra in a very unusual way. In Smeep Kang’s Second Hand Husband where Geeta Basra played one of the leads Harbhajan
Singh made a surprise guest appearance at the end as the man she chooses to marry. Sources close to the couple say this was their way of going public with their relationship. “Bhaji and Geeta have always firmly denied any marriage plans. But the entire cricket fraternity calls Geeta ‘Bhabhiji’. We all knew their marriage was definitely happening,” says a source.
