Mumbai: Here is another example of romance between Bollywood and cricket after love-stories of Deepika Padukone and Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra, and Sushmita Sen and Wasim Akram did the rounds.

And the lead characters this time are South Indian beauty Asin and Indian skipper MS Dhoni. According to sources, Dhoni stayed at Asin’s house at Lokhandwala on April 21 to watch the first IPL semi-final between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians.

A source said to a news daily, “Dhoni reached Asin’s house in the evening just before the first IPL semi-final between Mumbai and Bangalore kicked off and he stayed there till the match ended.”

“There was flutter in the actress’ building when the Indian captain was spotted entering her flat, and everyone was eager to catch a glimpse of him. After the match ended, Dhoni luckily managed to slip out of the building without attracting any more attention,” the source added.

Not only this, the two are always seeking each-other’s company. “They have done two commercials together and have been meeting up in connection with the promotion of a particular brand, which they jointly endorse. Asin was also present during Dhoni’s birthday celebrations last year. There have been whispers about their relationship in the South film industry where Asin is a huge star. Both seem to be extremely fond of each other. That Dhoni visited her residence only lends more credence to rumours about their growing friendship,” the source revealed.

So, we have another love-story in the making…
