The love story between cricketers and movie stars are not new to the Indian context. Previous such examples were Sharmila Tagore-Mansoor Ali Pataudi and Sangeeta Bijlani- Mohammad Azharuddin. The love affair between Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma is also one such prime example.
There were speculations about Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra and cricketer Hardik Pandya dating each other.
And it all started when Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra posted a pic on Twitter and wrote in “The perfect trip with the most amazing partner. Love is in the air!!!"

Pandya replied to Parineeti's tweet, "Can I guess? I think this is a second Bollywood and Cricket link. :p Great click by the way. (sic)."
And this cute banter led to the rumors of them dating.
However, Parineeti later revealed on Twitter that the 'partner' in question was her Xiaomi phone.
