Former Team India cricketer Sourav Ganguly is known for his outstanding performances on the cricket field, but he also has a romantic and dramatic love story.
Former Team India cricketer and current BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly made headlines during the IPL 2023 match when he shook hands with his apparent rival Virat Kohli, seemingly putting an end to their feud.
However, Ganguly's love story with his wife Dona may be even more romantic than the marriage story of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.
The love story of Sourav Ganguly and his wife Dona Ganguly has had more obstacles than any Bollywood movie. However, the couple overcame their differences and are now happily married with one daughter. They have been married for over 25 years now.
Former Team India cricket player Sourav Ganguly had known his future wife Dona for many years before they tied the knot. In fact, they had known each other since they were children, and Ganguly even admitted to having a crush on her during their childhood days.
Sourav Ganguly used to pass by Dona's house on his way to play football with his friends, hoping to catch a glimpse of her.
One day, he even dropped his badminton shuttlecock into the Roy household, which led to a conversation between them and eventually their first date.
Dona Roy, who is an Odissi dancer, fondly recalls her first date with Sourav Ganguly at a Chinese restaurant, where he ordered too much food and ate all of it.
The two started dating and fell deeply in love. Around the same time, Sourav Ganguly received the call for his debut for India at the Lord’s Test Match in England.
