Yes, you read that right. Shruti Haasan is dating Indian cricketer Suresh Raina, and the duo is said to be sharing a serious and mature relationship. However, neither of them are ready to make their love for each other public.
Last year, around the same time, Ms Hassan was screaming her lungs out, cheering for her beau’s team, the Chennai Super Kings, at the IPL matches.
A source close to the couple said: “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. But they are trying to keep it private and not speak about it in public.”
However, this time around, despite Shruti’s absence on the field, Raina is in superb form and his performance in the ongoing IPL match has been terrific.
Added the source, “Shruti and Raina try to meet as much as their busy schedules allow them, and are very serious about each other.”
Shruti and Raina were introduced at a party by common friends and they hit it off from the word go.
In the past, Shruti has dated Siddharth of Rang De Basanti fame. They were in a relationship for more than a year.
