India’s premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been in the news for the last few weeks as rumours have done rounds that he is tying the knot with South Indian Diva Anupama Parameswaran. Jasprit Bumrah was released from India’s squad ahead of the fourth Test against England in Ahmedabad for personal reasons. Nevertheless, Anupama’s mother, Sunitha Parameswaran, dismissed the rumours.
Sunitha Parameswaran told Manorama Online that her daughter and Jasprit Bumrah are only good friends, brushing aside the news or rumours as jokes. As a matter of fact, Anupama also denied dating the 27-year old Indian speedster. She cleared the air by stating that they are merely good mates. Earlier, there were also rumours that Bumrah was dating Telugu-Tamil actress Raashi Khanna.
Sunita Parameswaran remarked that the news stories linking Jasprit Bumrah and Anupama Parameswaran got created by those who did not like them following each other in Instagram. She also reckoned that both stopped following each other after such untrue stories unravelled. Sunitha also revealed that Jasprit and Anupama met for the first time in a hotel when she had gone for shooting and was clueless how such rumours popped out of nowhere.
“A new story would appear when everyone begins to forget about Anupama. We take it only in the positive sense. There were many stories linking Anupama and Bumrah earlier too. I think these stories were created bythose who didn’t like them following each other on Instagram. I suppose they had un followed each other after such untrue stories were spread. Once, Bumrah was staying in the same hotel as Anupama’s where she had gone for a shooting. It was then that they had met each other for the first time. I don’t understand why such a story has popped up now,” Sunitha stated as quoted by Onmanorama.
Jasprit Bumrah likely to return to the field in IPL 2021:
Meanwhile, after being rested for the fourth Test, Jasprit Bumrah will also miss the five-match T20I series against England and will probably skip the ODI rubber too. The right-arm speedster will most likely return to the field for the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021. Bumrah has not only been a vital member of the Indian team across formats but also the Mumbai Indians, playing a crucial role in their dominance.
