MUMBAI: British actor/model Elizabeth Hurley is returning to a place just a few kilometers away from where she first tied the knot with Indian origin businessman Arun Nayar a few years ago. This time though, she is coming with a different agenda: to spend quality time with current beau, Aussie leg-spin legend and captain of Rajasthan Royals, Shane Warne. She is expected to arrive in India with son Damian in the last week of April to cheer for the Royals.It was one of those traditional Hindu ceremonies that made the Nayar-Hurley wedding the talk of the town back in 2007. Against the popular perception that the match wouldn’t stand the test of time, Hurley had defied it all to get married to Nayar.
Three years later as things stand now, she’s on the verge of getting a divorce and while that is still happening, Hurley seems to be coping well with her new-found love.”Hurley will be staying at the Jai Mahal Palace in Jaipur which is only a few kilometers from Rambagh Palace, where she had got hitched with Nayar in 2007. She will be staying till the end of the tournament,” sources told TOI.There’s no doubt, say sources, that once Hurley arrives in India, Rajasthan Royals are bound to be chased by the media and glitterati alike. The actor had been hinting for some time now about her India trip. In her twitter exchange with Warne, she has been taking lessons on cricket.
The cricketer in turn has been setting online objective question papers for Hurley. In one of her tweets to Warne, Hurley said, “I think I’ll get 10 out of 10 for rules, but 0 for players/history/magnificent feats of the past.”Obviously then, now’s her time to get a little more familiar with things she doesn’t know much about. Rajasthan Royals, it is learnt, have invited Hurley as their personal guest.Hurley and Warne have been dating for more than five months now. The affair came to light after a British magazine caught them holed up in a London hotel room. Both Warne and Hurley then began clarifying on twitter about their break-up with their respective spouses. – TOI
