Former Indian vice-captain Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to hit out against reports that allege a relationship between him and a Bollywood stylist. A report in a Mumbai based tabloid spoke of how the batsman, who currently plays for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), was courting a stylist who has also worked as a stylist for certain IPL events.

The report speaks about how “cricket’s favourite poster boy” has “found love again in the glamorous lanes of Bollywood.” The report names one Leepakshi Ellawadi, a fashion designer who has put together the costume of films like Youngistaan and Ek Villain, as Yuvraj’s new lady love.

According to the report, a common friend said that whenever Yuvraj was in town, he “makes it a point to meet up with Leepakshi. He really enjoys her company. Whether it’s a crazy night out at a club or a sober luncheon, the two are inseparable. It’s time they took the relationship forward.”

The report states that Leepakshi has worked as a stylist on a couple of IPL events, which is where the two met. The ‘friend’ also said that, “They instantly hit it off and now, it’s almost been three years since they have known each other. She was also by his side when he was ill.”

The report went on to mention that Leepakshi gets along with Yuvraj’s mother Shabnam as well. It says that when contacted, Leepakshi was reluctant to speak about the cricketer, and only said, “Yuvraj is a great person and we hang out together. But I am not going to comment on this any further.”

Yuvraj immediately condemned the article on his Twitter account and lambasted both the tabloid and the reporter in question in a series of angry tweets.

Yuvraj has been linked to certain Bollywood actresses over the years, but while he never openly accepted those relationships, he never argued against them so vociferously either.
