There has always been a special bond between cricket and film, and when the two come together, fireworks can be seen both on and off the pitch. The young and gifted Indian cricketer Shubman Gill recently caused a stir online when he playfully questioned Punjabi actress Sonam Bajwa about her history of dating cricketers.
The events took place during an open discussion between the two on the popular television program "Dil Diyan Gallan." Gill, a cricketer recognized for his graceful stroke play and one of India's most promising young players, didn't hesitate to engage in lighthearted banter with the endearing actress.
Gill sparked the conversation by asking, "Have you ever gone on a date with a cricketer?" with a joking grin. Sonam was slightly taken aback by the query, and a slight flush appeared on her face. She quickly collected herself, though, and gave a smart, enigmatic reply.
Sonam, who is well-known for her work in South Indian and Punjabi movies, wryly answered: "No." After that, a hooter sound was audible, indicating that she had lied. The two celebrities soon laughed together.
She said when prodded to be honest, "Well, Shubman, cricketers are known for their straight drives, but sometimes it's nice to keep a few secrets in the offing." Her statement had the crowd in splits and gave her dating history an air of intrigue.
