Sarika Kapur and cricket legend Kapil Dev were partners, albeit they kept their relationship private. Over the years, a number of cricketers have been connected to Bollywood stars, and a select handful have even spoken candidly about their connections. A few cricketers were married to actors from the Hindi film business, albeit many of these cases were just rumours.
When they first met, both Sarika and Kapil were in the prime of their careers.
At a gathering, Manoj Kumar’s wife Shashi Goswami introduced them to one another. They started interacting and became friends. That friendship quickly became into love. Kapil reportedly brought Sarika to Punjab to meet with his parents, according to other reports. When Kapil met Romi Bhatia, he changed his mind about their relationship, which was quite serious at the time.
Romi met Kapil through his close friend Sunil Bhatia. Upon first glance, Romi captured Kapil’s heart. Romi had some initial reservations about Kapil. The information on the relationship between Kapil and Sarika was the cause of this anxiety. According to a number of rumours, Kapil and Sarika might wed soon. Romi contacted Kapil when she learned this information. Romi was not forgotten by Kapil either. He broke up after offering Sarika an apology. After only a short period of dating, Romi Bhatia and Kapil got married in 1980.
Sarika, on the other hand, wed renowned Tamil actor Kamal Haasan in 1988. At the time, Kamal was already wed, but he divorced Vani Ganapathy and wed Sarika. Shruti and Akshara Haasan are Kamal and Sarika’s two children. In 2004, they got divorced.
