Wasim Akram and Sushmita Sen
It all starts when both Sen and Akram were judges on the Indian dance show, Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena and it is supposed that love blossomed between the two celebrities after the death of Akram’s wife Huma in October 2009.
Nevertheless, this bond didn’t last for long and in a bid to bring an end to all the rumors both the stars issued public statements rejecting the reports.
Sushmita then took to social media to bash the news and wrote on Twitter: “Hi guys! Been reading about my upcoming wedding with Wasim…ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!!! Goes to show just how irresponsible media can be sometimes!”
“Wasim Akram is a friend and will always be one!! He has a wonderful lady in his life…rumors like these are uncalled for n disrespectful! My beautiful people..when I find ‘THE ONE’…you’ll be the first to know:)) benefits of being my Twitter family!!;) love u all soooooo much!”
Meanwhile, Akram in various news reports was quoted as saying: “I am tired of denying such rumors and now I want this to end once and for all.”
The legendary retired Pakistani bowler turned 55 on Thursday.
