But the cricketer and the starlet preferred to avoid each other and did not even come face-to-face at the event. They were spotted at a channel’s 20th anniversary bash on Friday night at a hotel in Worli.
Says an onlooker, “There were hushed whispers when people realised that Kim and Yuvi were there. But both just kept to themselves.
Though Kim appeared to be alert and looking in all directions, Yuvi preferred to stick in a corner with Sushmita Sen who was with her gang of pals. He was seen constantly clicking snapshots with his mobile with select Bollywood folks in his own zone.”
Adds the onlooker, “Kim was spotted at a social do after a while. Though she was moving around at the venue, she made sure that she did not come in seeing distance of Yuvraj.”
Incidentally over a year ago the two almost came face-to-face at a fashion event. Apparently as soon as Yuvi realised that Kim was around, he preferred to make an exit from the scene.
In 2010, Kim had a hush-hush marriage with Kenyan businessman Ali Punjani and relocated to Nairobi. When asked about the split on Simi Garewal’s chat show Yuvi had stated, “At that time I was just peaking in my career. Yes, I was going to get married, as she has been the main love of my life. She is married now so it’s not good to talk about her.”
