Legendary actress Sharmila Tagore and late cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi were probably the first names who showed the interesting amalgamation of cricket and Bollywood with their nuptial announcement. The parents of Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan, Sharmila and Mansoor, had a Nikah ceremony on 27 December 1969. According to entertainment daily Bollywoodshaadis,com, "the Nawab of Pataudi had to do a lot of wooing in order to impress the Bengali beauty. He even gifted her a refrigerator, but that did not work. It was the roses and letters, which were sent over a span of four years that made Sharmila say 'yes'".
