IPL founder and former chairman of the sporting league Lalit Modi confirmed on the evening of Thursday, July 14, that he is dating former Miss Universe and Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen. His announcement took everyone by surprise when he shared romantic photos of the couple from their recent Maldives and Sardinia vacation.
Now, Sushmita’s brother Rajeev Sen has broken his silence on their relationship as he too seemed surprised by the development. Speaking to India Today, Rajeev said, “I am pleasantly surprised too. I will speak to my sister about this.” Rajeev himself is said to be separating from his wife Charu Asopa.

Over the moon. In love does not mean marriage yet. But one that by God’s grace will happen. I just announced that we are together”.
