New Delhi: Veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh is set to marry his long-time girlfriend Geeta Basra in October. The marriage ceremony will take place in Phagwara, about 20 km from Jalandhar, in Punjab on October 29, according to a report in the Hindustan Times.
Reports also suggest that the dates might change if Harbhajan is selected for the upcoming series at home against South Africa.
Geeta Basra who is a Bollywood actor has been dating Harbhajan for many years now. Although the duo never acknowledged the relationship publicly, but the rumour mills for the wedding announcement caught wind when Bhajji made a special appearance in Basra's latest flick Second Hand Husband.
During the promotion tour of the film, Basra had said that, “Don’t read so much into it. It’s a fun appearance, not a wedding announcement. When I get married, I won’t do it chup-chup ke. I’ll announce it from the rooftops. Arrey, Punjabi ladki hoon, Punjabi shaadi karungi khoob dhoom-dhaam se.”
Further media reports claim that the wedding preparations and invitations will be finalised once Harbhajan is back from Sri Lanka. Given the profession of the couple, several movie stars and cricketers are expected to attend the big gala affair.
