Who says love at first sight doesn’t happen? Well, with this couple it was very much love at first sight for Harbajan, who had seen Geeta in a song ‘Woh Ajnabee’ and since then he wanted to meet his lady love. As it is said, matches are made in heaven, but few first time meetings happens during IPL matches too when its a cricketer that we are talking about. Yes! Thats exactly when Geeta Basra met Harbajan Singh for the first time when he was playing for the first season of IPL match which Geeta wanted to come and watch.
While Geeta was not very keen on starting a relationship earlier when the duo met, she was more inclined towards keeping her focus on movies instead, but who can avoid a guy who persuaded a girl for 10 months straight when finally she started seeing things for the better.

Isnt it true, whats meant to be will definetly be.
Harbajan had even been teased by Shahrukh Khan at one of the IPL awards ceremony where the latter took a note of the things cooking up between the two and asked : ‘Apka ghar kab basra hai?’ to which Harbajan couldn’t stop his smile. Shahrukh also bowled another googly at the cricketer saying : ‘Gita ki kasam kha ke kaho’. Harbajan and Geeta Basra were also spotted having dinners with Sachin Tendulkar. Geeta also accompanied Harbajan to the IPL bashes hosted by Mukesh and Nita Ambani which opened up the relationship status for the media.
Well, the final big step in the declaration of their relationship had been the cameo in which Harbajan played a part of the man which Geeta was looking for in search of true love in the movie ‘Second Hand Husband’.
