Sush, Wasim the next jodi?


There has been speculation about Pakistan cricket legend Wasim Akram and actress Sushmita Sen ever since they hosted a reality show together on television around two years ago.
At that time Akram’s marriage to Huma was going strong. But after her untimely demise in October last year, the rumours of a romance between them kept getting stronger, especially in the last couple of months.
On Monday night, Wasim and Sushmita arrived together at a suburban nightspot and spent the evening in each other’s company, the first time they’ve made a public statement about their togetherness. Judging by the PDA (public display of affection) they indulged in, the relationship seems official now.
An eye witness said, “Akram and Sushmita walked in hand in hand at around 11.30 on Monday night. They seemed very comfortable in each other’s company. Later, a couple of Sushmita’s female friends also joined them. While Akram was acting coy, Sushmita seemed to be in pretty a playful mood and was loud enough to let the world know that she’s very happy with the new man in her life. Both of them stayed together till around 1.45 when the restaurant shut down.”
Incidentally, a couple of Bollywood celebrities including Shekhar Suman (who was with a friend) and Aseem Merchant were also present when Wasim and Sushmita made their entry. Aseem Merchant refused to comment about the incident, when contacted.
But a source said, “The friendship between Wasim and Sushmita started when they were judging Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena, a reality show. They have stayed in touch after that. At that point, Akram was married and Sushmita was dating Mudassar Aziz, the director of Dulha Mil Gaya. But they gradually got closer to each other after Wasim’s wife Huma passed away.
Since then, they have been spotted together at the odd social function, including a party at Shah Rukh Khan’s house (Wasim is the bowling coach of SRK’s cricket team, Kolkata Knight Riders) and then at model Candice Pinto’s party. But this is the first time they’ve publicly dated and it does indicate that they are a couple now.”
Despite several attempts, neither Sushmita Sen nor Wasim Akram could be reached for comment.
