An alleged relationship between Team India head coach Ravi Shastri and ‘Airlift’ actress Nimrat Kaur was one of the most talked-about topics in Indian cricket. Associations have formed through time. There have been several weddings between cricket and Bollywood, the most famous of which is that of Indian captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma. Ravi Shastri replies to ‘His relationship status with actress Nimrat Kaur’.
Apart from Kohli, former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin married actress Sangeeta Bijlani, while another ex-captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi married actress Sharmila Tagore and had Bollywood stars Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan as children.
In 2018, rumours of a relationship between Shastri and Nimrat Kaur began to circulate. The news of these two datings made the rounds, and the Indian head coach had to respond strongly to a Mumbai tabloid to put an end to the rumours.
“Cow dung says it all,” India’s head coach replies in the Interaction
During India’s tour of England in 2018, the former India all-rounder reacted to it in an interaction on Mid-Day by saying ‘biggest load of dung’. “Nothing to say when it is the biggest load of cow dung,” Shastri was quoted as saying by Mid-Day. “Cow dung says it all,” India’s head coach added.
“When I say cow dung, you must understand,” Ravi Shastri had replies when the tabloid asked him about his last meeting with the actress three years ago.
Nimrat Kaur took the lead after performing with the late Irfan Khan in the offbeat movie Lunchbox.
Shastri, who turned 59 last month, has been praised by former cricketers, experts, and critics for moulding Team India into a strong force that has advanced to the maiden World Test Championship Final. Since taking over as head coach in 2017, Shastri has led the team to incredible success, with the highlight being twin series victories in Australia and a semi-final appearance in the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup.
The recent 2020-21 victory in Australia was well-received by everybody, considering India was without several key players at various points throughout the high-profile four-match Test series. Shastri coached young players like Mohammad Siraj, Rishabh Pant, Shardul Thakur, and Washington Sunder, who were crucial in guiding Team India to a historic series victory.
