Cross-dressing Bobby Darling is heartbroken
25 September 2009
Usually when one is heart broken one tends to go into a shell resisting all attempts to be humoured. But not if you are Bobby Darling. Bobby, who has never been known to hide his emotions and, in fact, can be quite garrulous, is now rather melodramatically claiming from the rooftop that his heart is broken.
The breaker of his heart is none other than the 27-year-old burly cricketer Munaf Patel.
The lanky Munaf, who comes from the dusty town of Ikhar near Bharuch, shot into the spotlight in 2003 when he was projected as a scorching tearpart by former Australia pacer Denis Lillee. After a dream Test debut against England in 2006, where he picked five wickets at Nagpur, Munaf has fallen out of favour with the national selectors after a steady dip in his performances.
Bobby and Munaf met in Delhi at a nightclub. They were introduced by a common friend. Soon they started talking. A few minutes into the conversation and they were like a house on fire. Bobby then had a few drinks.
Bobby says, “A few hours later, he came to the hotel where I had checked in. He was very nice and sweet to me. We got along fabulously.” Bobby even showed this reporter the messages the two had exchanged.
The lovers’ tiff gets stranger with Munaf completely refuting the story saying “I did meet Bobby Darling in a nightclub in Delhi, He met me in presence of cricketers Ishant Sharma, Sarandeep Singh and Amit Sharma. But I didn’t go to the hotel where he was staying. Agar mujhe famous hona hota toh main koi actress se dosti kar leta. Woh film line apni line nahin hai. Kaisi dosti yaari?
Moreover, Bobby Darling is so much older than me.”
Hardly had Munaf told us this then Bobby called and wailed, “Munaf just called me up and shouted at me that I have told you everything.”
Evidently after the interlude at the hotel Bobby and Munaf had kept in touch through SMSes but later Munaf stopped responding to Bobby’s messages or taking his calls.
Bobby is now pining for Munaf who has seemingly dumped him. ‘I am very depressed,” he exclaims, adding, ‘Munaf should put himself in my position, only then will he know what it feels like to be jilted.”
