After Harbhajan Singh, it is time for another national-level cricketer to hitch his wagon with a starlet.
While Harbhajan’s chosen one is Geeta Basra (last seen as Gippy Grewal’s tyrannical ex-wife in Second-Hand Husband), Yuvraj Singh’s choice is intriguing. Hazel Keech is a Bollywood starlet of British origin whose main claim to fame is her role as Kareena Kapoor’s foxy friend in Bodyguard who walks off with Salman Khan in the end. Hazel also performed an item song in a long-forgotten film Maximum where she danced to the chartbuster ‘Aa anthe amlapuram‘.
During the shooting of Bodyguard, Hazel was seen in Salman’s company and she was rumored to be his latest firangi flame. Salman and Hazel completely denied these rumours.
In 2013, Hazel went into ‘Bigg Boss‘ and came out within two weeks fuming about the lack of inadequate food, water and hygiene in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house.
Both Geeta Basra and Hazel Keech have been virtually pulled out of oblivion by the marriage announcement. Strangely, neither couple was willing to admit to their relationship even when the whole world could see they were together. One sees Virat Kohli playing the same ‘pretend’ game supposedly because an announcement of a relationship would affect Anushka Sharma’s career (more than it’s already affected by Bombay Velvet?).
Now, one sees Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone playing the same game of hide and seek. At the Diwali party at the Bachchans, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone arrived together but tried to hide from the media.
Said a star-guest, “They were very much together. But they tried to duck every time they saw a media person. I couldn’t understand it. Either you are together or not together. If you are, why hide it?”
