Lalit Modi, the first president of the Indian Premier League, formalized his relationship with actress Sushmita Sen on social media on Thursday evening. He posted a series of photos with the former beauty queen on Twitter as well as Instagram. He called Sushmita Sen “his better half” in one of his tweets and later clarified that they weren’t married and “just dating”. “Not married – just dating,” he wrote in a separate tweet. Meanwhile, Sushmita Sen’s brother, Rajeev Sen, while interacting with India Today, said, “I’m also pleasantly surprised. I’ll tell my sister about it.”

“Just returned to London from a whirlwind #maldives #sardinia world tour with the families – not to mention my #better half @sushmitasen47 – a fresh start, a new life at last. Over the moon (sic),” Lalit Modi said in a tweet. He then clarified that they were “not married”.

“Just for clarity. Not married – just dating. That too will happen someday,” he wrote in a separate tweet.
