Lalit Modi refuses to stay out of the news; let’s have a sneak peek at his past controversies:
Mumbai Court issued a non-bailable warrant against Lalit Modi in a money-laundering case
The special court of Mumbai had issued a non-bailable warrant for the arrest of the former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi in 2015 for his involvement in a money laundering case that was registered through the Enforcement Directorate.

After the IPL final of 2010, Lalit Modi was suspended from BCCI because of misconduct, indiscretion and financial irregularities in association with the two rigging bids over the two new franchises, Pune and Kochi. BCCI initiated an investigation against Modi and was banned permanently in 2013 after a committee found him guilty of these allegations.
Lalit Modi was allegedly robbed of $10,000 when he attempted to buy cocaine in the US

Now on to the latest controversy sparked by Lalit Modi: Lalit Modi dating Sushmita Sen!
This news is taking everybody by storm, and memes, old tweets, and photos – everything resurfaced as many began to join the dots as to how this “unlikely couple”, as many put it, came about.
Clearly, nobody had even imagined him dating the famous actress and former Miss Universe. While the businessman clarified that they aren’t married just yet, he hopes “that too will happen one day”.
Sushmita isn’t the first woman in Modi’s life. Lalit Modi was married to Minal Modi in 1991. She passed away in December of 2018 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Minal’s ex-husband’s misdeeds caused him to be imprisoned in a Saudi Arabia jail at the moment when she was expecting. She gave birth in London and later moved to Delhi.
As per reports, Minal reportedly befriended Modi’s mother, Bina, during her time in Delhi. Minal reportedly met Lalit Modi frequently. But, when they married each other in 1991, much emphasis was put on the reality that Minal was 10 years older than Lalit.
The couple had one daughter named Aliya in 1993. They also had Ruchir, their son, in the year 1994.
“You have been my life and my journey”, Lalit, the former IPL chairman, wrote when he declared the death of his first wife.
However, based on old photographs that surfaced on the internet following Modi’s announcement, it was obvious that he and Minal were acquainted with Sushmita Sen, who accompanied them to various gatherings and IPL matches.
Sushmita Sen Confirms Dating Lalit Modi
Sushita Sen took to her social media handle and posted a picture with her daughters Renee and Alisah with a caption reading: I am in a happy place!!!NOT MARRIED…NO RINGS…Unconditionally surrounded by love!! Enough clarification given…now back to life & work!! Thank you for sharing in my happiness always…and for those who don’t…it’s #NOYB Anyway!!!I love you guys!!! #duggadugga #yourstruly
Sushmita Sen, 46, confirmed her relationship with Lalit Modi a day after his big announcement on social media. In an Instagram post, she talked about her split from model-actor Rohman Shawl in December last year.
However, many people are calling Sushmita Sen a gold digger which we believe is highly problematic. She has been in the limelight and has experienced fame since her early years, owing to winning the title of Miss Universe in 1994. She is a woman who follows, ”I buy my own diamonds, I don’t need a man for that,” her words from an early interview.
We, anyhow, wish the couple all the happiness in the world and the strength to stay away from the toxicity and hatred on social media!
