London: Lalit Modi, the first chairman of the Indian Premier League, today announced a “new beginning” with actor Sushmita Sen. Calling Sen his better half, Lalit Modi sparked speculations among their fans if the two were married. Spoiler alert: They are not.
In a tweet, he wrote, “Just back in London after a whirling global tour #maldives # sardinia with the families – not to mention my #betterhalf @sushmitasen47 – a new beginning a new life finally. Over the moon.”
Lalit Modi, in the next tweet, clarified that they both aren’t married yet, just dating. “Not married – just dating each other. That too it will happen one day,” he tweeted.
Lalit Modi had left India in 2010 amid investigations into tax evasion and money-laundering linked to the IPL. He has been in London since then. Sushmita Sen was crowned Miss Universe in 1994. She made her Bollywood debut in the 1996 film Dastak. She has featured in films such as Biwi No 1, Do Knot Disturb, Main Hoon Na, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Tumko Na Bhool Paayenge, and No Problem.
