Well, who said that one’s own culture, nation, and theology are the only places where love can be found and that one can only find fulfillment in one’s own country? Love is an emotion; it is blind and unconcerned with things like race, religion, geography, or socioeconomic status. Additionally, it is unconcerned with international borders.
Despite the disdain many people have for other nations, people from completely different cultures and countries have long been common. However, this has not been the case for Indians and Pakistanis. When the men in blue and the men in green meet on the cricket ground, both countries feel an adrenaline exhilaration. Even though India and Pakistan are polar opposites, as we all know, they share a lot of similarities.
Nonetheless, some celebrities have dared to date and marry people from across the border. Cricket players who had deep feelings verbalized those feelings for their family members who lived in the enemy nation.
A list of Bollywood actresses who have dated Pakistani cricketers is here.
