The rumours of Chak De girl Sagarika Ghatge dating former cricketer Zaheer Khan started doing the rounds when the two were seen inseparable at Yuvraj Singh wedding last year. And Zaheer’s pictures with Sagarika gave way to their blossoming relationship. Soon enough, the rumours of their link-up started doing the rounds.
Buzz has it that the two have been dating each other for last six months. Reportedly, the couple met through common friends and hit it off immediately. And months after the speculation, Sagarika, who will next seen in Irada, opened up on the link-up rumours with Zaheer. In an interview to Mid-Day, Sagarika said, “Let’s just say I am in a very happy space right now. I have never spoken about my personal relationships. In fact, I have never spoken about anything to the press. Personal space is not for discussion.” Interestingly, in her debut film, Sagarika played a hockey player who is dating a cricketer.
When asked about the pressure of dating a cricketer in real life, she added, “I will remain just the way I am: low profile as ever. Why should I be any different just because I am linked to someone? I am not the kind who can put up a farce. I have no shame in admitting that I draw into my shell easily and come out only when I have to speak. I have big respect for Zaheer’s game and before you ask, yes he will watch my film (Irada) when it releases.” On the work front, Sagarika will be seen in Irada opposite Arshad Warsi. The film is set to release on February 17.
