PICS: When Yuvraj was rejected by his arm candy in Jaipur
Jaipur: Model Aanchal Kumar who tied the knot with shaadi.com boss and long-time friend Anupam Mittal in July was once the alleged flame of cricketer Yuvraj Singh. The Yuvi-Aanchal saga started in 2010 after a section of media dubbed them as ‘couple’.
Yuvraj and Aanchal were spotted at IPL parties after which they made headlines in several dailies – with pictures – that ‘he was spotted with his current squeeze at IPL party’.
Touted as Yuvraj’s arm candy in 2010, Aanchal Kumar is a successful model too.
Kumar has spent 11 years as one of the most sought-after catwalk queens in the Indian fashion industry and her popularity shows no signs of slowing down.
Kumar is a Chandigarh girl who grew up in Mumbai. The youngest of four daughters from an upper middle class background, Aanchal won the Gladrags Megamodel Contest back in 1999 at the age of 21 and has not looked back since.
Standing at 5'8", with doe eyes and a stunning figure, she's a natural beauty and has been the face of several big brands like Sunsilk and Bombay Dyeing. In 2007, she won the Best Female Model of the Year Award at the Bollywood Fashion & Music Awards held in Atlantic City, New Jersey. And besides being a regular fixture on the Indian catwalk, Anchal's also featured in a few music videos and dabbled in movies, playing a model in Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion and dancing with Abhishek Bachchan in Bluffmaster.
Back in 2002 she won the celebrity segment of quiz show Baazi Kiski hosted by B-town actor Ashutosh Rana on Zee TV, beating out fellow model Dipannita Sharma and cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Waheed Akram.
