Speaking about Anam and her now ex-hubby, Akbar’s proposal moment, the former had said, “I always had a very movie-like marriage proposal in mind. So, here I was waiting for a filmi proposal from Akbar, while our engagement invitations were already sent out. Of course our families had discussed that we are getting engaged and all, but I was left wondering 'Arey abhi tak Akbar ne mujhe woh movie wala proposal kyun nahin diya!' nd I was definitely not expecting a proposal after the invites were out!”

Akbar had then confessed, “I knew Anam is very filmi so I planned this grand proposal at Falaknuma Palace on August 27, after our engagement was announced by our family. We came on a chariot, red carpet was rolled out for her, there were roses and all of that. Also, I got a tiara for her. And then, I went down on my knees and asked her 'Will you marry me?' as the violins played in the background. There were banners with 'Will you marry me?' too.”

Speaking about Asad’s father, Mohammad Azharuddin had a very controversial love life. The ace cricketer was married to Sangeeta Bijlani and had shared at the India Today Mind Rocks, “I met Sangeeta Bijlani during an ad shoot in 1985. Yes, it was love at first sight. Nobody talks about this so openly... But I am telling you.”

Further talking about the strange connection that Bollywood and the cricket world has, he shared, “Cricket and Bollywood have had a long-standing relationship because of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and the relationship will continue I think, kyunki ye to dil ki baat hai (because it's a matter of the heart).Getting married to an actor or cricketer is a personal choice and when there are two stars in question it becomes easier to deal with all the attention. The understanding becomes easier when cricketers and actors get married.” (Also Read: Ex-Bigg Boss Contestant, Akanksha Sharma Finds Love In Ace Of Space Co-Contestant, Abhiraj Chadha)
