The former cricket board administrator had tweeted about starting a new journey with Sushmita and posted some romantic pictures with her. In a follow up post, he clarified they aren’t married yet but are dating.
Asked to respond to the development, TV actor Rajeev Sen told ETimes, “I am pleasantly surprised. I will speak to my sister before I say anything. I wasn’t aware of it at all. My sister is yet to confirm this from her end, so, I can’t comment as of now.”
Lalit took everyone by surprise when he tweeted Thursday evening, “Just back in London after a whirling global tour #maldives # sardinia with the families – not to mention my #betterhalf @sushmitasen47 – a new beginning a new life finally. Over the moon. ” He shared several pictures with Sushmita – from their recent holiday as well as some very old pictures.
He added, “Just for clarity. Not married – just dating each other. That too will happen one day.”
Ranveer Singh was among the first celebs to respond to the announcement. The actor dropped a red heart emoji and an evil emoji in the comment section of Lalit Modi’s Instagram post.
Sushmita broke up with Rohman Shawl a few months ago. Rohman and Sushmita had been in a relationship for a few years. She had opened about marriage in a recent conversation with Twinkle Khanna and said, “I came close to getting married thrice, all three times God saved me. I can’t tell you what disasters followed with their respective lives. God protected me, also because God is protecting these two kids, he can’t let me get into a messy affair. ”
Lalit was previously married to Minal Sagrani. They got married in October 1991 and had two children together – son Ruchir and daughter Aliya. Modi is also a stepfather to Karima Sagrani, from Minal’s first marriage. Minal died due to cancer in 2018.
