Suresh Raina denies dating Anushka Sharma

Even as cricketer Suresh Raina has was busy playing for India at the Asia Cup series going on in Bangladesh, news of him dating actor Anushka Sharma was hitting the headlines in India. Raina has now said that he did meet Anushka at a party in London and later for dinner with some common friends, but he has strongly denied dating the actor. In fact he said that he would never date a Bollywood star because his middle class family would never accept it.

While talking to a daily Raina said, “I don’t know where these rumours are coming from, and that too after such a long time. I have met Anushka just a couple of times. She’s a very nice girl – that’s all. We met at a party in London nearly a year ago and after that we and our friends went out for dinner. There’s no question of my dating her or any other Bollywood actor. I will never date an actor or a model. My family will never accept her.”

Earlier Anushka had squashed the rumours about her dating the cricketer, but the buzz about the two continued. It could be someone’s imagination or a publicity strategy. After all, its not uncommon in Bollywood to use link-ups to stay in the news or to steer the attention away from a certain relationship. Raina’s official statement should finally put an end to this story. We are sure that a certain Ranveer Singh will definitely feel relieved now!
