Delhi Capitals’ star batter Prithvi Shaw has remained in all sorts of limelight for quite some time now courtesy of his off-field activities. On May 26, Prithvi Shaw made his first public appearance with actress Nidhi Tapadia at IIFA Awards in Abu Dhabi after which their video went viral on social media.

Nidhi Tapadia is a 22-year-old model and actress from Nashik, Maharashtra and is said to be Prithvi Shaw’s girlfriend. The DC batter was earlier spotted posing with Nidhi in New Year’s Eve together in a Mumbai nightclub. A few months back, Shaw had also commented on one of her Instagram pictures and the comment went viral as well.
Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw’s off-field controversies have made headlines quite a few times in the last few months. He was involved in a heated argument with influencer Sapna Gill for which the cricketer had filed an FIR as well.
While his off-field life remained controversial, the young opener was sensational in the Ranji Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in 2022 and 2023. He scored 595 runs in 6 games in the Ranji Trophy while having 332 runs in 10 games in the last edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
However, he failed to deliver for Delhi Capitals in the initial games of the IPL 2023 season as the team management eventually dropped him from the playing XI. He again got a chance in the playing XI after getting excluded from a few games and then he scored a half-century against the Punjab Kings.
