From Sharmila Tagore and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi to Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli, there have been many stars from the Hindi film industry and the cricketing world who have tied the knot with each other. One of the most popular actresses Madhuri Dixit is now married to Dr. Shriram Madhav Nene in 1999, but she had once confessed her love for a former Indian cricketer.

That cricketer, who also captained Team India, is 18 years older than the Dhak Dhak girl. He is one of the best opening batsman in the history of cricket. He was part of the Kapil Dev-led team, that created history by lifting the 1983 World Cup at Lord's in London. He is none other than Sunil Gavaskar, who celebrates his 75th birthday on July 10.

In 1992, while talking to the India Today magazine, the Dil To Pagal Hai actress had said, "I am mad for Sunil Gavaskar. He is too sexy. I want to run behind him and he even came in my dream." The Bollywood star actress was 25 when she said this and the Indian cricket legend was 43.
