Since Lalit Modi announced his "new beginning" with Bollywood actor Sushmita Sen, the news has left the Internet buzzing. The former chairman of the Indian Premier League (IPL) sent social media into a collective meltdown when he announced the news with a set of happy pictures featuring himself and Sushmita Sen. He wrote, "Just back in London after a whirling global tour the Maldives and Sardinia with the families - not to mention my better-looking partner Sushmita Sen. A new beginning a new life finally. Over the moon. In love does not mean marriage yet.”
