Amid the frosty relationship between India and Pakistan, there have also been some who tore through the barriers and walked the path of love. And some of the most celebrated relationships involved cricketers and film stars.
Have a look at some Indian and Pakistani love stories which ended with the time.
- Sushmita Sen and Wasim Akram
Earlier in 2013 some reports alleged that Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen and Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram are planning to get married after seeing each other for a couple of years. Former Miss Universe Sushmita openly dismissed rumours regarding the two being romantically linked. Wasim went on to marry another foreigner he had been dating, Australian Shaniera Thompson, who continues to be his bride today.
2. Sonali Bendre and Shoaib Akthar
Former international cricketer Shoaib Akhtar had once gone vocal over his love for Indian actress Sonali Bendre. Shoaib said that had said that if Sonali refused his proposal, he would kidnap her. However, in an interview later, he said that he likes Sonali but have never met her or would never think of kidnapping her. But rumours about the Shoaib and Sonali’s affair kept flying around.
