Lalit Modi announces he is dating Sushmita Sen

Former IPL chairman Lalit Modi has announced that he is dating Bollywood actor and former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen. Modi, who was the first chairman and commissioner of the Indian T20 tournament, shared the news on Thursday with a series of pictures on Twitter, calling the actress his ‘better half’ and describing it as a ‘new beginning’.

“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,” wrote Modi.

Modi, who was the founder of the Indian Premier League, further clarified that the two haven’t tied the knot but are just ‘dating’. “Just for clarity. Not married – just dating each other. That too it will happen one day,” he tweeted. Modi was previously married to Minal Sagrani, whom he married in October of 1991. They had two children together – son Ruchir and daughter Aliya. Modi is also a step father to Karima Sagrani, from Minal’s first marriage. Unfortunately, Minal lost her life to cancer in 2018.

Meanwhile, Sen had recently shared pictures from her vacation in the Maldives. She had visited the island nation with her daughters. Modi’s announcement suggests that he had also accompanied the former Miss Universe. Last month, Sushmita also spoken about her decision not to get married and what led to it. She revealed that she came close to getting married thrice, and all three times ‘God saved’ her.
