Rumours were doing rounds that Bollywood diva Sushmita Sen and veteran cricketer from Pakistan Wasim Akram would tie the knot very soon after romancing for two years. But the couple has refuted the reports as absolutely false and urged the media to let them enjoy their privacy. The 37-year-old actress took to her official Twitter account to clarify her relationship status with the cricketer saying they are just good friends, "Hi guys! Been reading about my upcoming wedding with Wasim... Absolute Rubbish.
Goes to show just how irresponsible media can be sometimes.” She added further, "Wasim Akram is a friend and will always be one!! He has a wonderful lady in his life... Rumours like these are uncalled for and disrespectful.” Akram also sang the same tune as Sushmita saying he is presently completely dedicated to his children and has no plans of getting married in the near future. Akram clarified, "I am really fed up with these rumors and speculations made in the media.
I decided to take a year off from the Indian Premier League because I wanted to give time to my two sons who are growing up and need their father close to them.” He stated more, "Right now my entire focus is on spending quality time with them. There is no plan in my life now to get married.” He also opened up about Sushmita, "I want to devote my life to my sons. I think the media and people should not only respect my privacy but also that of Sushmita who is a very graceful and decent lady and a fine human being.”
