Actress Nimrat Kaur has been a topic of intense social media conversations lately after it emerged that she was reportedly dating the Indian cricket team coach and former India cricketer, Ravi Shastri.
Many were quick to conclude that the couple, who were recently roped in by a German car brand as their brand ambassador in India, would soon be tying the knot.
Amidst intense media scrutiny, Airlift fame Nimrat took to Twitter to break her silence. Terming the reports as ‘fiction, she wrote, “Fact: I may need a root canal. Fiction: Everything else I read about me today. More facts: Fiction can be more hurtful, monday blues exist and I love ice cream. Here’s to trash free happy days ahead.”

It all started after Mumbai Mirror claimed that both Shastri and Nimrat were dating each other for nearly two years. Its report said, “We hear the two have been dating rather discreetly for over two years. (Shastri is known to have been long estranged from his wife Ritu)… Shastri is currently in the UK where the Indian team is playing a Test match against England. Nimrat has been filming a popular web-series. Here’s wishing this two a long innings.”
In the past several Indian cricketers have gone on to marry film actresses. More recently, Chak De.. fame Sagarika Ghatge married former India pacer Zaheer Khan, while actresses Geeta Basra and Hazel Keech married Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh respectively.
