Be it picking each other’s language and culture, double the celebrations of festivals, learning about traditions and rituals or enjoying authentic food, being in a cross-culture relationship gives us an opportunity to make one another’s culture our own. But for some, cross-culture becomes a hindrance and they part ways. Nach Baliye 9 contestants and ex-couple, Natasa Stankovic and Aly Goni belong to the latter category, who called it quits stating cultural differences and compatibility issues to be the major reason.

When Natasa Stankovic and Aly Goni had participated as an ex-couple in Nach Baliye 9, we all had secretly hoped for them to come back together and resolve their differences. With their sizzling chemistry and friendly camaraderie, Aly and Natasa were our favourite couple on the dance reality show. But nothing romantic happened between the ex-couple and they continue to be the best of friends. And on the first day of 2020, Natasa treated her fans with a surprise on her social media handle and we couldn’t be happier for her!
On January 1, 2020, Natasa Stankovic had made an announcement regarding her engagement with Indian cricketer, Hardik Pandya and had given a glimpse on her Instagram of how her beau had proposed her on a yacht. Sharing the video and pictures of the proposal, Natasa had written, “Forever yes @hardikpandya93.” Hardik too, had posted the pictures and video of his proposal to Natasa and had written, “Mai tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. 01.01.2020 #engaged.” Soon the newly-engaged couple were flooded with congratulatory messages, but it was Natasa's ex, Aly Goni’s comment which had all our attention. Aly commented on Natasa post with an array of heart emojis.
In an interview with BollywoodLife, Aly Goni was asked to comment on his ex-girlfriend, Natasa Stankovic's engagement to Hardik Pandya. Expressing his excitement, Aly remarked, "I'm so happy for her. I'm really really happy for her. I really liked them both together. I've seen them together and they are adorable. I'm so ecstatic that they are getting married." Just like us, Natasa's engagement was a surprise for Aly too, and revealing the same, he had elaborated, "I already knew that they are dating each other. This was a little surprise for everyone, but I'm really happy that she is very happy." (Also Read: Nehha Pendse Kick-Started Her New Year With A Passionate Liplock With Fiance, Shardul Singh Bayas)
When Natasa Stankovic and Aly Goni had participated in Nach Baliye 9, the reports were rife that she had started seeing Hardik Pandya. However, Aly claims that he was entirely unaware of their relationship, "That I don't know really. I knew they are good friends always, but this is something really good." Despite their breakup, Aly and Natasa have maintained a cordial relationship and were an inspiration that how in a dignified manner they had stood by each other on the show. But despite being good friends, the two never discussed personal matters. Sharing the same, Aly stated, "No, we never discussed our personal lives, we were too busy dancing."
During Nach Baliye 9, rumours were rife that Natasa Stankovic and Aly Goni would come back together but later, he had clarified that they are just good friends and nothing more than that. Aly was quoted as saying, “Natasa is a very dear friend and although we are no longer dating, we will always be there for each other. After she got to know about the operation, she came down and helped me around, knowing well that I had no one to look after me. We also have known each other long enough to understand our needs, and it’s beautiful that way.”
In October 2019, Natasa Stankovic had wished her beau, Hardik Pandya on his birthday with a heartfelt post. She had written, "To my best friend, the strongest and the most beautiful soul. This year has been a roller coaster ride for you. Many great things happen and some were not that great but definitely have made you stronger. You have been such an inspiration for all of us and I couldn’t be more proud of you for everything you have done for yourself and people around you, for everything you have gone through and still decided to stand tall and get out of it like a winner. Keep shining, smiling and getting stronger. You are on the right track. Stay focused. I’ll always have your back. Happy bday HP God bless you @hardikpandya93 #happyface."
