In what will be 2017's first Bollywood actress meets with Indian cricketer, falls in love and marries him affair--Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan have decided to tie the knot on November 27.
Chak De's actress Sagarika Ghatge had earlier this year, announced that she got engaged in a private ceremony to India's former fast bowler Zaheer Khan.
The actress took to Instagram to share a picture of her ring, the one with which Zaheer popped the question.
As part of her statement after she revealed the engagement, Sagarika said, "He just gave me the ring basically, but it was a complete surprise for me. I am very very happy that I am going to spend the rest of my life with the right person. Quite excited that he is the one, and I will be spending my life with him."
The two had first announced their relationship when they made an appearance together at Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech’s wedding (another Indian cricketer-Bollywood actress affair).
This might be a first in this year, but there have been several previous relationships-turn-into-marriage for couples with a similar professional background.
Not looking too back, Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh married Bodyguard movie's actress Hazel Keech in an elaborate affair in 2016.
