The ‘thick’ friendship between cricketer Harbhajan Singh and actress Shilpi Sharma (of Jo Bole So Nihaal fame) is the talk of the town. News is also that this budding friendship has already reached the next level, which for obvious reasons, the duo won’t accept.
The news making the rounds is that Harbhajan has been continuously sending SMSs to Shilpi to come to South Africa and catch him in action.. on the field. Shilpi maintains that he’s ‘just a friend’ and not someone special. “What do you mean by ‘is he a special to me?’Yes, I don’t deny the fact that we’ve been friends for almost a year and he wants me to come to South Africa to cheer him and his team. Is there anything wrong with that?” she shoots back.
Point taken. But if two singles keep catching up for over a year, something is always likely to happen.. sooner or later. “No yaar. Nothing of that sort is happening here, ” she laughs.
It’s a wonder the duo have not yet been spotted anywhere together till now. “We go out in groups and we are also busy with our respective work. If you’ve not noticed us, what can I say,” she answers.
Remind her that just a year ago, Bhajji was linked with another actress, Geeta Basra. “What? I’ve never heard of such rumours from the time I’ve known him,” she retorts. Ask her when she is planning to go to cheer Bhajji, she replies, “I was to go but due to some prior commitments, I couldn’t make it. But if his team makes it to the final four, I definitely intend to go to cheer him and his team.” And before signing off, Sharma doesn’t forget to say — “I’ll be going to cheer him with a bunch of friends.. not alone.” Hmmm..
