Bollywood diva Disha Patani turned 28-years-old on Saturday (June 13). She is currently one of the most popular actresses in Bollywood. Disha has done several movies and starred in several album songs which have given her a huge fan following. But, she has a connection with cricket as well.
Disha rose to fame with the movie ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, which based on the life of former Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The film was released back in September 2016, and she portrayed the role of Mahi’s ex-girlfriend Priyanka Jha, who died in a car accident. In one of her interviews, Disha proved how much she loves the Ranchi-born cricketer.
While speaking with Bollywood Hungama during the promotion of the biopic, Disha was asked to rate some of the Indian cricketers based on their ‘hotness quotient’.
Players like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja were mentioned to the actress. Much to the surprise of her fans, Disha rated MSD 10/10, while the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja received an 8 rating. Current Team India skipper Virat Kohli received a high score of 9 from the Bareilly-born actress.
In the same interview, Disha was also asked about her perfect date with an Indian cricketer. In no time, she mentioned the now married Virat Kohli as the ideal cricketer she would love to go on a date with.
There is no way one can deny that Disha is a huge cricket fan. In one of her recent interviews, she had chosen Jasprit Bumrah as the Indian team’s biggest match-winner. She had given this interview earlier this year when the Kohli-led Team India was on the tour of New Zealand.
“If I had to pick a match-winning player, it would be Jasprit Bumrah. He is one of the finest players we have. It will be a proud moment for all of us on February 2, while Bumrah takes down the Kiwis,” Disha had said during a promotional interview for her movie ‘Malang’.
