These stars have hit fours and sixes on the cricket pitch before coming on screen.

New Delhi:

The relationship between film and cricket is very deep.

Be it the friendship of a cricketer and a film actor or actress in the stadium.

Fall in love and then get married.

Or, there could be such a coincidence that the player swinging the bat on the cricket field becomes an actor.
