LAHORE Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram is reported to have been dating the Indian Bollywood star and former Ms Universe Sushmita Sen. According to an Indian journal Mid Day, the two were spotted together a little too often. The friendship between Wasim Akram and Sushmita Sen that began on the sets of a dance-based reality show Ek Khiladi Ek Hasina in 2008 has now moved to the next level. The duo has been spotted together several times in recent times enough to give rise to speculation. Wasim, who is living a single parent life after his wife Huma Akram died to a mysterious disease in an Indian hospital in October last. The air ambulance carrying her from Lahore to Singapore stopped in Chennai for refuelling when her condition worsened and she was taken to hospital there. The journal further stated that they were seen bonding at Shah Rukh Khans house party recently. Followed by a dinner at a Bandra Restobar, and then at the birthday party of a model-friend of the actress. The Pakistan ex-cricket captain is spending more time in the city in his capacity as the bowling coach for Shah Rukh Khans IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders. He first met the actress in 2006 in Dubai for a charity event and they stayed in touch. Their camaraderie and chemistry was visible on a show that they judged together. But nothing happened at the time as he was still married, and the actress was involved with her Dulha Mil Gaya director Mudassar Aziz. Earlier this month, Wasim and Sush walked in together for Candice Pintos birthday party. Both seemed totally relaxed in each others company and were seen having a good time, it added. It is learnt, the journal added that Sush was the reason Wasim even agreed to do the reality show. It was first offered to her, and she insisted that they take Wasim as the other judge. Their chemistry was natural and he loved flirting with her even on camera. Apart from their love of cricket, they also share a love for Urdu poetry. During the shoot of EKEH, Wasim would read out couplets to her during breaks and keep her entertained. An eye-witness who spotted then at a dinner last week says they looked happy in each others company. Looks like Wasim who lost his wife to cancer last year is finally ready to move on.
