Is a new Bollywood-cricket romance brewing? Well, at the moment, they prefer to stay within the confines of the 'good friends' club. Attacking batsman Suresh Raina and Band Baaja Baarat star Anushka Sharma first met in London a few months ago, when the Indian team was touring England. Since then, they have managed to find time for each other and like 'hanging out' together. Close friends of the pair claim that they share a good chemistry. But beyond that, neither they nor the players involved are ready to say anything. Raina, of course, was linked with the high-profile daughter of a union minister not too long ago.
Raina and Anushka have not made any public appearances yet but it can be confirmed that they are not exactly the kinds who would like to keep their friendship under wraps. Anushka, an army officer's daughter from Uttarakhand, has some cricket connection too. Her brother Karnesh was a state-level player while the actress has acted in Patiala House, a film based on the life of a cricketer.
