Mohammad Azharuddin, the former Indian cricket captain who is scarred by the match fixing scandal, is set to divorce his wife Sangeeta Bijlani, an actress. Mid-Day has reported that Azharuddin who is 47 years old has separated from his wife and will file for divorce in a week. Their marriage is 14 years old.
It is also being said that he is now dating Jwala Gutta, who is 26 years old. She is No. 7 in world mixed doubles rankings and is married to Chetan Anand, who is the top ranked male badminton player in India.
Azharuddin has been seen at Jwalas match practices and tournaments frequently. Jwala and Chetan too are seperated and will file for divorce soon. A source had this to say about this “Whenever he is in Hyderabad, he is seen in Pullela Gopichand’s academy where Jwala practises and they both leave together. They head to some hotel but I am not sure if they stay together in the same room, Jwala and her husband are not staying together at the moment and are even practising separately,” When asked, Jwala Gutta told newspapers that ‘You can write what you want, it’s neither a yes nor a no.’ Her husband Chetan Anand said, ‘It’s a personal issue and I don’t want to comment anything.
