|It’s not just Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli who have been painting the town red, another Bollywood-cricket love story is brewing. We hear south beauty Shruti Haasan is dating cricketer Suresh Raina.
Shruti Haasan and Suresh Raina are said to have crossed the first stage of mutual liking, and are apparently in a steady relationship. Now, you must have got the connection why Shruti Haasan was spotted cheering so passionately for the cricketer’s team, the Chennai Super Kings, at the IPL matches last year.
The bonhomie between glam ladies and handsome cricketers is nothing new. So how did the relationship between Shruti and Suresh start?
As per reports, the two met through common friends, and soon developed a liking for each other. Even though Shruti kept herself away from the grounds this year, Raina performed well.

“Raina used to consider her his lucky mascot. This year, she has kept away from the cricket grounds. Yet Raina is playing extremely well. So the superstition has obviously ended. It is a mature relationship now and they are in love,” a source is quoted as saying.
However, the couple is not willing to come out in the open about their relationship, and want to keep it private.
Shruti Haasan has earlier dated South actor Sidharth. The couple even moved in together but got separated in 2011. Suresh, too, was rumoured to be dating politician Praful Patel's daughter Poorna. But, the two never admitted to it.
Like Anushka and Virat, do we see the beginning of another romantic innings between cricket and Bollywood? Do you think Shruti Haasan and Suresh Raina are in for the long haul or is it just a T20 inning?
