Yuvraj Singh with wife Hazel Keech
We're not sure if the conversation veered more towards the cerviche on the menu or his cover drives, but cricketer Yuvraj Singh and Brit-Mauritian actor wife Hazel Keech seemed to be enjoying a fun, relaxed dinner with a friend at a Latino-South American restaurant in Bandra Kurla Complex last weekend.
A man-bun sporting Yuvi was the last to arrive at the table; till then, the vibrant Hazel appeared engaged in a laughter-tinted chat with their dining companion. While this diarist wasn't able to play eavesdropper [the spacing between tables is spot on, we must add] we couldn't miss noticing the kitchen and waiting staff get all starry-eyed, and slip into superstar-tizzy mode as soon as Yuvi stepped in.
An extra table was laid out beside theirs to accommodate some of the food and checks were made at regular intervals by different staff members to ensure Yuvi and company was well looked after. We did find that the service had slowed down a bit while all of this was unravelling. In fact, we spotted a chef even step out of the kitchen to check for a reaction from the cricketer as his creation made its way to the big-ticket table. Cricketers will always be treated like gods in this country.
