Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami, known for his exceptional right-arm fast bowling, made waves with standout performances in the recently concluded 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. Becoming India’s leading wicket-taker, he secured an impressive 24 wickets in seven matches. However, his on-field success has been accompanied by personal challenges, with ongoing domestic violence allegations from his ex-wife.
Amidst this backdrop, an unexpected twist emerged as Indian actress Payal Ghosh publicly proposed marriage to Mohammed Shami. This development surfaced after Shami’s outstanding performance during the India-Sri Lanka match on November 2, where he secured a five-wicket haul in just 5 overs, restricting the opposition to a mere 55 runs. Ghosh, impressed by Shami’s stellar performance, took to Twitter to express her admiration and playfully proposed marriage, humorously suggesting Shami improve his English skills.
The actress’s proposal garnered mixed reactions on social media, with some users finding humour in the situation, while others engaged in playful banter. However, one Twitter user humorously remarked that Shami might not consider the proposal, citing eligibility factors.
Payal Ghosh, originally from Kolkata, commenced her film career in 2008 with the English movie Sharpe’s Peril. She subsequently appeared in supporting roles across various Indian film industries, including Telugu, Kannada, and Hindi. Her breakthrough came with the 2017 Hindi film Patel ki Punjabi Shadi, alongside renowned actors Paresh Rawal and Rishi Kapoor.
Aside from her acting career, Payal Ghosh has been associated with controversy. She previously made serious allegations of rape against prominent film director Anurag Kashyap, claiming he had sexually exploited her in 2013. Despite the controversy, Ghosh has ventured into politics, showcasing a multifaceted career.
