Yuvraj's retirement party: Who all arrived from Bollywood and cricket?
Ever since India's star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from International cricket earlier this month, his family, friends, and fans have been experiencing a cocktail of emotions. Notably, the 37-year-old held a retirement party in Mumbai last night. And, the who's who of cricket as well as Bollywood showed up. Here's more on this.
Starting with the man of the night himself, the ever-stylish Yuvraj looked dapper in a black shirt, coupled with a pair of white trousers. On the other hand, his wife Hazel Keech opted for black leather pants and a printed top.
There was no dearth of glam at Yuvi's party last night, as his friends from the Bollywood duly arrived. Rumored couple Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar got clicked at the party. Film producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and wife/film critic Anupama Chopra were also seen. Other Bollywood celebrities present at the event included Raveena Tandon, her husband Anil Thadani, Anusha Dandekar, Karan Kundra, Kunal Khemu.
Interestingly, it was the presence of film actress and Yuvraj's rumored ex-girlfriend Kim Sharma that has now become the talk of the town. The Mohabbatein actress looked stunning in a leopard print strapped dress. For the uninitiated, more than a decade ago, Yuvi and Kim were rumored to be in a rather serious relationship before they called it quits in 2007.
Yuvraj's friends from the world of sports also attended the party in good numbers. Shikhar Dhawan, who was recently ruled out of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup due to an injury, was spotted. Tennis star Sania Mirza, Mohammad Kaif, and Ashish Nehra could be seen too. Many couples like Zaheer Khan-Sagarika Ghatge, Irfan Pathan-Safa Baig, Ajit Agarkar-Fatima Ghadially, also arrived at the party.
To recall, Yuvraj Singh had announced his retirement earlier this month on June 10. The rockstar all-rounder featured in a total of 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20Is for Team India. He will always be remembered for his six-sixes feat, and the famous 2007 and 2011 World Cup victories. We wish Yuvi all the best for his future innings!
