 Former Indian cricket team captain Mohammad Azharuddin and former Bollywood Actress Sangeeta Bijlani have been married for the past 14 years. Their marriage is on the rocks recently due to Azharuddin's close relationship with a badminton champion half his age. The young and talented badminton player is none other than Jwala Gutta, 26 years old, and is the World's number 7 mixed doubles player. Jwala Gutta is currently married to Arjuna Award-winner badminton champ Chetan Anand. Azharuddin and Sangita Bijlani breakup scandal is gaining more attention as the Jwala affair and divorce news are getting stronger.

 Jwala Gutta, World No 7 mixed doubles player, currently married to another badminton champion Chetan Anand, is the one who is reportedly having an affair with the former India skipper Azharuddin. Some reporters say Azharuddin gifted Jwala a BMW car as a token of appreciation. This has brought a lot of speculation around their relationship. Azhar is often seen in Pullela Gopichand's academy where Jwala practises and they both leave together. They head to some hotel to spend time together. Jwala and her husband are not staying together at the moment and are even practising separately.

Sangita Bijlani is the second wife of Azharuddin. Former Indian skipper Azhar was first married to Naureen for 8 years before they got divorced.  His messy divorce cost him two bungalows in Hyderabad's Banjara Hills, two BMWs apart from lakhs of rupees. He has two sons from his first wife,Asaduddin and Abbasuddin. Five years after the divorce, Naureen married a Canada-based real-estate businessman.

Azhar met Sangeeta Bijlani at a photo shoot where he modelled for an advertisement along with the actress, soon after which he started seeing her in 1994.  Sangita was dating actor Salman Khan at that time. She broke up with him to be with Azhar. After a romance that drew a lot of criticism, Azhar and Sangita Bijlani got married in 1996.

When contacted, Jwala neither confirmed nor denied the rumours of the so called affair and about the Celebrity Couple Azharuddin and Sangita Bijlani breakup scandal. Jwala's husband, Chetan Anand, is obviously under pressure due to his wife's behavior and wants the media to stay away from their personal issues and that the media has no right to get into personal matters.

Do you think Azharuddin Sangita marriage will fall apart?
