‘Chak De’ actress Sagarika Ghatge got married to cricketer Zaheer Khan on November 23 in Mumbai. The couple, who got engaged on May 25 this year, tied the knot through a court marriage. It was a low-key ceremony, which had Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, actress Vidya Malavade and director Abhishek Kapoor in attendance. The duo has rarely spoken much about their relationship in public.

While Zaheer Kahn remained the backbone of India’s pace attack for over a decade, Ghatge shot to fame with Chak de! India, which was based on the Indian Women Hockey team and revived the sport-films genre in Bollywood.

Talking about their marriage, Zaheer told the media that the couple didn’t face issues related to inter-religious marriage as both the families are evolved enough. As per Sagarika, they are different only in the way they appear to the world, but deep within, they have similar values and core.


However, making his point on Zaheer-Sagarika marriage, ad filmmaker and activist Ram Subramanian, who has worked with the Aam Aadmi Party, tweeted and questioned whether love jihad is only limited to middle class and poor people, and why no one making hue and cry when famous people get married.
