This Queen of hearts has serenaded many, popular among them being Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff and the likes. But ofcourse she lost her heart to someone much much older. In fact he wasn't even an actor. No. We are not talking about her husband Dr. Nene. We are talking about a certain cricketer who was Madhuri's love interest all the while. albeit secretly!
Madhuri was all of 25 when she fell in love and deeply that too. The man was 18 years older to her, but that didn't stop her from dreaming and chasing him. He was married too!
We look at the modern day couples in Bollywood actresses and cricketers - take for instance Harbajan Singh - Geeta Basra, Virat Kohli - Anushka Sharma, Yuvraj Singh-Hazel Keech etc. But seems like it is not a new phenomena!
Turns out Madhuri was in love with none other than India's cricketer heartthrob Sunil Gavaskar. Back then, Gavaskar was not regarded as one of the greatest opening batsmen without reason. With his bat, the man would set world records for most test centuries and most test runs scored by any batsmen. And Madhuri was one of Bollywood’s top heroines.
In fact in 1992, when Madhuri was speaking in an interview with India Today, she said “I’m mad for Sunil Gavaskar. He is too sexy. I want to run behind him and he even came in my dream.” When Madhuri gave the interview she was 25 years old, and Gavaskar, 43. But age doesn’t matter when it comes to love, not even if there’s an age gap of 18 years for Madhuri. “I have seen him playing cricket for India and I like so much,” Madhuri had said. We agree, I mean are you looking at this!
