2) Virender Sehwag – Aarti Ahlawat
“A thorough entertainer” is the perfect choice of words to explain the pyrotechnics of the evergreen Indian opener, Virender Sehwag. Be it on the field or off it, the Delhi cricketer has weaved his magic and has become a fan favourite. His ability to play the game in its purest form without complicating the process was a rarity in the gentlemen’s game.
Along the way, the Nawab of Najafgarh set some elusive batting records and he has a page to himself in the history books of Indian cricket. Sehwag did offbeat things in his style and the same can be said about his personal life. He married his childhood friend in a dream wedding hosted by the former finance minister, Arun Jaitley.
Aarti Ahlawat was the lady’s love of Sehwag and their story began when the Indian cricketer was just 7 years old. It took a long time for the couple to convince their families as they were distinct cousins. Eventually, they got the desired result and now it has been 15 years since they last took their wedding vows.
