Bollywood and Cricket have always made a heady mix- Ravi Shastri-Amrita Singh, Imran Khan-Zeenat Aman, Harbhajan Singh-Geeta Basra and lots more. Here is probably a new couple of such kind. The guy is a flamboyant cricketer who is will mostly play at No 4 in the forthcoming World Cup in England and Wales. The girl is the daughter of a TV glossy owner. Sparks are flying between KL Rahul and Akansha Ranjan! 

Are you asking where is her boyfriend, hotelier Avik Chatterjee? Seems, the two are not much in touch anymore. At least, that's what Akansha's social media account suggests. Pictures of Avik on Akansha's handle have lessened, in fact barely seen.

So yeah, Akansha is devoting a large amount of her spare time to KL Rahul- from dinner scenes to movie dates to house parties.

Lo and behold! KL Rahul who has made a comeback of sorts after a poor run with the bat and the hibernation inflicted by his appearance in Koffee With Karan Season 6 (that infamous episode with Hardik Pandya) was spotted praying in Mount Mary Church (no prizes for guessing that one of his wishes was to come up trumps in the World Cup '19) with Akansha in town.

Akansha, who is very popular on social media with over a lakh followers on Instagram and 8000+  on Twitter, is Alia Bhatt's best friend and featured in Ankit Tiwari’s music video Tere Do Naina opposite Aparshakti Khurana.

Is this latest dosti in town destined to grow and acquire more meaningful tones? Let's wait and watch. But one thing is certain. We know which Indian cricketer's performance in World Cup '19 will always have Akansha's eyes!

Over to England and Wales!
