Hardik Pandya has decided to write the year 2020 in his name, as he has been quite often giving surprises to his fans. It was on New Year when he had surprised his fans with the announcement on his engagement with DJ Walley Babu fame, Natasa Stankovic. Hardik Pandya had gone down on his knees and had popped the much-awaited question to his ladylove, when the two had celebrated New Year on a cruise. Sharing an array of pictures from the moment, the cricketer had written, “Mai tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. 01.01.2020."

While people were just getting in terms with their relationship, Hardik had thrown another major bomb on his fans by announcing his marriage and the news of pregnancy. On May 31, 2020, Hardik had shared a series of pictures with his pregnant wife, Natasa on his Instagram handle. Along with the pictures, Hardik had talked about entering the new phase in his life and being excited to welcome a new life.
Ever since the news of Hardik and Natasa’s wedding and pregnancy broke, a lot has been said, but most of all, the couple is bombarded with congratulatory messages. Amidst all this, Hardik’s ex-girlfriend, Elli AvrRam’s cryptic post that she had shared after the couple’s engagement came into limelight again. Elli had shared a photo on her Instagram handle with a caption“Be your own Angel this time xx”, raising many questions and eyebrows. Take a look at her post.
Now, after the wedding of Hardik and Natasa, BollywoodLife got in touch with Elli to ask her about her post, and the actress decided to rest every rumour. She said, “You got to be kidding me; that New Year’s one ...no, it had nothing to do with him. I love the way you guys just pick up things and overthink and go into this space of like, oh...she’s trying to send a message to him. If I want to tell him something, I’d just drop him a message. I don’t have to go through Instagram to do it. So, no, that had nothing to with him, nothing, and I’m seriously happy for him and Natasa.”
Not just Hardik’s ex Elli AvrRam's cryptic post came into limelight, Natasa’s ex, Aly Goni too had reacted to the couple’s announcement. Natasa too had shared Hardik’s post on her Instagram handle with a caption, “Hardik and I have shared a memorable journey together so far and now, it's only going to get better. Together, we are excited to welcome a new life into our lives very soon. We’re super excited for this new step of our life together and humbly ask your blessings and well wishes.” To this, Natasa’s ex-beau had poured a sweet wish like a mature ex that could be read as “God blesssss u guys” followed by two red-heart emoticons.

In an interview with crickettimes.com, Hardik Pandya had opened up about meeting Natasa Stankovic for the first time and how they had started dating. Speaking about the same with cricket commentator, Harsha Bhogle, Hardik had stated, “I got her by talking. She saw someone in a hat at a place where I met her, wearing a hat, a chain, a watch, at 1 am. So she thought he is ‘alag prakaar ka aadmi aaya’ (different kind of person came).”
When asked if Natasa was a fan of him, the cricketer had retorted by saying, “She had no idea who I was.” He had also talked about his parent’s reaction to their engagement and had revealed, “My parents also didn’t know that I was getting engaged. Two days before (the engagement), I told Krunal. I told him, ‘I have had enough. I have found someone in my life who I love, and I am becoming better’. They (family) backed me and told ‘do whatever you want’.” (Recommended Read: Ziva Dhoni's Laugh, Watching 'Papa', Dhoni Snuggle With Their Two Cute Pooches Will Make You Smile)
