Sachin Tendulkar with wife Anjali, Harbhajan Singh, Hazel Keech, Ashish Nehra and Vidya Malavade, among other celebrities, attended Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge's wedding party
Sagarika Ghatge got engaged to Zaheer Khan on April 24 earlier this year
"Partners for life !!! #engaged @ImZaheer," wrote Sagarika Ghatge while announcing her engagement with Zaheer Khan
Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge made public appearances on quite a few occasions including Yuvraj Singh's wedding ceremony with Hazel Keech last December
In the 2007 film 'Chak De India', Sagarika Ghatge played a headstrong hockey player, who dumps her cricketer boyfriend for undermining her passion for hockey
Exactly 10 years on, in an irony of sorts, Sagarika Ghatge got married to former Indian speedster Zaheer Khan
Talking about her relationship and the connection with the 'Chak De! India' role, Sagarika had said in an interview, "When I think of it, there is an irony in that, but it's definitely not planned. I don't know how to look back at it, but we can definitely call it ironic."
"More than me, a lot of people think of it like, 'Oh my God, she is actually marrying a cricketer because she dated a cricketer'. But that was a movie, this is my real life. So, I don't know how I can associate both," Sagarika Ghatge said
Speaking about her marriage to Zaheer Khan, Sagarika Ghatge further added, "Like everybody who is getting married, I think there is always stress, yet there is a lot of excitement because it's a wedding that you are planning. So, we have all those emotions going on right now."
Sagarika Ghatge had earlier told mid-day in an interview, "Let's just say I am in a very happy space right now (which she reiterates at least thrice while fielding posers on Zaheer Khan). I have never spoken about my personal relationships. In fact, I have never spoken about anything to the press. Personal space is not for discussion"
Asked about the pressures of dating a cricketer, Sagarika Ghatge evasively answers in an interview with mid-day, "I will remain just the way I am: low profile as ever. Why should I be any different just because I am linked to someone? I am not the kind who can put up a farce. I have no shame in admitting that I draw into my shell easily and come out only when I have to speak"

If we talk about her professional life, Sagarika Ghatge has been very selective about her projects
Sagarika Ghatge has featured in a Marathi film "Premachi Goshta", Hindi film "Jee Bhar Ke Jee Lee" and Punjabi film 'Dildariyaan'
She also faced her fears through TV show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi - Darr Ka Blockbuster Returns'
Sagarika Ghatge says it is very important that she believes in the project before she takes it up
"I think every project that I have done has always helped me grow as an actor. So, that's why I chose a Marathi film after a film like 'Chak De...' because I knew doing that Marathi film would help me grow as an actor because I got to work with somebody like Atul Kulkarni, who I respect a lot in terms of the kind of body of work that he has done," said Sagarika Ghatge in an interview earlier
"So, I choose my projects in whichever way it helps me bring out something new in me. So, maybe that has made me do selective films, but I hope to do a lot more films now," Sagarika Ghatge added
At the moment, Sagarika Ghatge has a bilingual film called 'Haadsa' in her kitty
"It will be releasing early next year. That's pretty much it," Sagarika Ghatge said
Sagarika Ghatge was also seen alongside Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah in 'Irada'
Sagarika Ghatge told mid-day she had a whale of a time on set of 'Irada'
Speaking about Irada, Sagarika Ghatge told mid-day, "I play a character who is all heart. She strongly believes in justice. It is a novel film with a sensitive subject. Though most of my scenes are with Arshad, I would stay back on set and watch Naseer saab give his shots. For me, working with an actor of his stature is the biggest high."
Sagarika Ghatge belongs to a royal family as Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur is her forefather. Her father Vijasinh Ghatge is a member of royal family of Kagal. Sita Raje Ghatge, grandmother of Sagarika is the daughter of Maharaja Tukojirao Holkar III of Indore
