There has always been a history between Indian cricketers and Bollywood actresses and we have seen a few couples who have had a successful relationship; for instance, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech, etc.
For quite some time now, we have seen rumors doing rounds of none other than Hardik Pandya the Indian all-rounder. It was being said that the hunky cricketer was dating the Bigg Boss star and “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon” actress Elli AvrRam.
It may not be all speculation as both of them was seen doing public appearance at parties and having dinner at various restaurants. Elli was also there to see off her beau when the Indian team left for Sri Lanka. Nevertheless, the actress was always on the front foot when it came to denying or accepting their relationship status and always maintained a diplomatic stance.
In her words:
“Let them [people] be curious in life. Why do I need to clarify anything? By talking about these rumors, I’d just be giving more fodder for gossip [material]. Anyway, so many wrong things have been written over the years but I’ve never gone out and clarified [them]. Once you become a known face, people will follow you for gossip and news. But, we are not going to look ourselves up. So, you can’t do much to stop these rumors. People have such strong mentality that no matter what I say [about Hardik], they will be like, ‘Oh she is lying. We know the truth. She is hiding something’.”
After all the speculation, something came out which proved that Elli and Hardik are not in relationship, but he is dating another Bolllywood actress.
Yes you read it right! It’s true, Hardik is dating no one else that “Sanam Re” actress Urvashi Rautela.
Here’s what a report said:
“After having a tete-a-tete with the two brothers, Urvashi later had eyes and ears only for Hardik. Onlookers confirm that there were flirtatious looks being exchanged between the starlet and the cricketer. They seemed to hit off rather well.”
It further disclosed,
“Urvashi met the men in blue, or should we say, the brothers in blue, Hardik and Krunal, at industrialist Gautam Singhania’s party at his Breach Candy residence.”
A photo has cropped up on social media and it has gone viral suggested that the reports of the two hitting it off is true. Good news for Hardik and Urvashi.
Earlier on, Elli had stated prophetically that she is not affected with link-up rumors as she shares a close bond with her family and her parents understand her pretty well. She said:
“I share a close bond with my family, and they know the truth of whatever is happening in my life. So, I am not worried. In fact, my dad has always taught me to ignore such things, and laugh at them as most of the times; these stories are absolutely cooked up. When I was a teenage, I used to say that I am married to God. In fact, I used to wear a ring on my ring finger so that guys won’t try to hit on me thinking that I am engaged. And if anyone asked, I would say, ‘Yeah, I am engaged to God’.”
