Actress Sushmita Sen and Wasim Akram met on the sets of a dance reality show and they became more than good friends
Former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen was in the news during 2013, when she and Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram reportedly decided to get hitched. The two had become friends on the sets of a dance reality show.
Sushmita and Wasim became close on the sets of a reality show, the two were judging. But, since Wasim was a married man, they couldn't go any further with their relationship.
Later, after the death of his wife Huma in 2009, Sushmita and Wasim allegedly came closer. According to reports, the duo were spotted together several times but never talked about or commented on their relationship status. It was also said that Sushmita and Wasim were considering a live-in relationship too.
As per a report in Hindustan Times, it was Wasim's suspicion nature that spoiled their relationship. Sen's glamorous lifestyle and hectic schedule made the cricketer insecure and uncertain about their future together.
In a chat with DNA, the actress had said, "I am extremely fond of Wasim. But if I start having an affair with every man I am friends with... Being in a relationship is a big deal and the day I am in one, I will surely tell everyone. I won't keep people guessing."
When Wasim was asked about his wedding plans, he told PTI, "I am really fed up with these rumours 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. Right now my entire focus is on spending quality time with them. There is no plan in my life now to get married."
Cut to present: Sushmita Sen is currently dating model Rohman Shawl and Wasim Akram is reportedly dating an Australian model and is living with her in Karachi currently.
