Cricketer Suresh Raina denies dating Shruti Hassan

Report is doing all the round that Indian cricketer Suresh Raina is dating Bollywood actress Shruti Hassan but the cricketer put the rumor into rest by issuing a statement that he is not dating anyone.

Reacting to the news, Suresh Raina confirmed that he is not dating anyone. “Too many media reports which no one even tries to confirm. This is to clear once & for all. I'm not dating ANYONE", Suresh Raina tweeted.

It is said that Suresh considers Shruti as her lucky mascot and whenever she cheers for Chennai Super Kings, he gives his best.

Grapevine buzzed that the couple met through a mutual friend at a party last year and since then they are going steady.

A source close to the couple said, “Raina used to consider her his lucky mascot. This year, she has kept away from the cricket grounds. Yet Raina is playing extremely well. So the superstition has obviously ended. It is a mature relationship now and they are in love. But they are trying to keep it private and not speak about it in public.”

The source also added saying, “Shruti and Raina try to meet as much as their busy schedules allow them, and are very serious about each other.”

Before dating Raina, Shruti was in relationship with actor Siddharth (Rang De Basanti fame). However, the relationship ended in October 2014. On the other hand, Raina was also linked to former Union Minster Praful Patel’s daughter Poorna. However, Poorna denied the rumor.
