The current Indian team is known to be a close unit. The players share special camaraderie towards each other and even though a lot of cricketers are married now, a few eligible bachelors are still heart-throb of the fans.
Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are two of those who generally keep the dressing room atmosphere healthy with their hilarious behaviour and pranks.
The duo recently attended a famous talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’ hosted by a prominent face in the Bollywood industry – Karan Johar. A lot of celebrities, especially from Bollywood, enjoy having a chat in the show and Pandya, Rahul were two of the very few cricketers to have attended in its long history.
During the show, both the players revealed some of the secrets of their personal lives which have left their fans in awe.
Celebrity crush of KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya
When prodded on his celebrity crush, Rahul revealed that he had a huge crush on Bollywood actress, Malaika Arora. However, it ended when her relationship with Arjun Kapoor entered the public domain.
When Hardik was put forward the same question, he asked Karan to define ‘crush’. The host then explained, “A crush is higher than attraction, you like someone enough to constantly think of that person and you want to talk to them and be with them. You go a little weak in the knees.”
Talking further about this, Hardik admitted that only recently he discovered various dating jargons like “seeing someone”, “dating someone” and “being in a relationship”.
Karan also asked who is more likely to get attracted by cheerleaders during the IPL and Rahul said, “It can be anyone”. When Karan asked why not Hardik, Rahul retorted, “He’s been with all of them.”
