It is the season of weddings for Indian cricketers. After Suresh Raina and Dinesh Kartik, now Harbhajan Singh has decided to tie the knot to long time girlfriend Geeta Basara.
The date has, however, not been officially confirmed yet. The date might be pushed forward owing to Harbhajan’s selection in the upcoming series against South Africa.
Harbhajan, who is also trying to make a comeback in India’s One-Day squad, is currently playing in Sri Lanka. He has not made any comments about the wedding but, according to Hindustan Times, the 35-year-old is expected to make an announcement as soon as he is back from Sri Lanka tour.
This would not be the first time that an Indian cricketer would be tying the knot with a Bollywood actress. Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin is married to actress Sangeeta Bijlani (separated since 2010) . The late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi was married to Sharmila Tagore till the former’s death.
