Earlier Raina was seen with Poorna Patel, daughter of Civil Aviation minister Praful Patel, when he went to Shirdi to seek blessings before leaving for West Indies.

She was inducted into the IPL in November 2008, just before the Champions League that was to have been played in December that year but was called off because of the Mumbai terror attacks. She is a close friend of Gayatri Reddy, scion of the family that owns the Hyderabad team, the Deccan Chargers.
