Smriti Mandhana had become the heartthrob of all teenagers during the ICC Women’s World Cup. Be it her looks or the way she wielded the willow, she was winning hearts. Since, the great show at the World Cup, where she notched up two centuries, there has been no looking back for Mandhana. In some circles, after the World Cup, she was also touted as the national crush of India. In the social space, she was even compared to Bollywood celebrities like Disha Patani. It seems we finally know who has the potential from Bollywood to rule the heart of the maverick southpaw. Her choice of the person she would like to date is not one of the Khans, and that is what surprised us. The 20-year old has revealed she would like to date none other than Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan. She revealed this at an India Today event, where she also went on to say that Arijit Singh is her favourite singer.
“Women’s IPL will be a great thing. The domestic players will get to play with the international stars. I’m sure BCCI will think about it,” said Mandhana.
