New Delhi: Little known Bollywood actress Nupur Mehta, whose name surfaced in match-fixing allegations, has claimed to have been dating Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan.

The starlet has now admitted to have met some international cricketers in a casino during 2009 T20 world cup in England. However, she has vehemently denied having anything to do with match-fixing and even threatened to sue the English daily that had carried her blurred image along with the damning report on fixing.

Speaking to Mail Today, she said, “`I was seeing Dilshan and went to the casino with him but that does not suggest I am involved with match-fixing in cricket.”

“That is my personal life and my relationship cannot be made the basis of such a big allegation. I am a single, attractive girl and have the liberty to move around in any part of the world and interact with whoever I want to,` she was quoted as saying.
