New Delhi: Fans of veteran Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh were taken by surprise when his father Yograj Singh decided to give his son's wedding a miss.
Yuvraj's wedding with Bollywood actress Hazel Keech was scheduled on November 30 at a gurdwara in Fatehgarh Sahib in Punjab.
“It is my misfortune that I will not be attending the traditional wedding of my son ... I had told Yuvraj’s mother that I will not attend the wedding if it is solemnised at any guru or dera sect or involves any religious guru. It’s destiny, I will not go. I only believe in God and not religious gurus,” Yograj was quoted as saying by The Hindustan Times.
Yuvraj and model-turned-actress Hazel exchanged wedding vows at the spiritual dera of Baba Ram Singh Ganduan Wale in village Duffera on Sirhind-Chandigarh Road.
Days after his son started a new innings, Yograj has once again made some shocking statements.
Speaking to Dainik Bhaskar, Yograj said, "I am surprised to see that literate people are running after these saints who look after deras. I should not speak of others, as my own family is involved in it. I taught Yuvraj how to play cricket for 16 years. He hasn't ever given me a kurta and he has given several cars in the dera."
"I want to ask whether the baba has taught him how to play cricket? Did he cure his cancer? Yuvraj says he has been able to get back to playing because of his blessings," he added.
