Former Indian cricketer and current Team India men's team head coach Ravi Shastri is known for his flamboyant image. He always hits the headlines with his witty comments.

The commentator-turned-coach landed in an unwanted controversy after reports emerged, which had linked Ravi Shastri with Bollywood actress Nimrat Kaur. The duo was in a relationship a couple of years ago reportedly.

Ravi Shastri gave an interview to a leading tabloid back in 2018, when India toured England. The old interview is trending currently on social media, in which the head coach reacted to these rumours.

Shastriji rubbished the reports as baseless. These airports are nothing but a 'biggest load of dung'. You should understand when I call the reports as Cow dung, he said while speaking to Mid-day.

Back in 2016, Ravi Shastri and Nimrat Kaur were snapped together during the launch event of the Audi A4 series. The duo was also seen at a few other functions. This gave rise to reports of a possible linkup between the actress and coach.

Ravi Shastri tied the knot with Ritu Singh in 1990. The couple has a daughter Alekha Shastri.

The head coach is currently in the UK for the forthcoming ICC World Test Championship, where India will lock horns with New Zealand. Team India led by Virat Kohli will also play a Test series with England in the tour.
