Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya began the new year by announcing his engagement to Serbian actress Natasa Stankovich on Instagram.
Pandya took to Instagram to share a photo with the actress, captioning it, “Mai tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. 01.01.2020 #engaged”.
He was soon flooded with congratulatory messages from teammates, with skipper Virat Kohli leading the way, commenting “Congratulations H. What a pleasant surprise. Wish you guys great times ahead. God bless.”
Others like KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Shreyas Iyer also congratulated the 26-year-old all-rounder.
Pandya is currently recovering from a back injury and missed the T20I and ODI series against Bangladesh and the West Indies. He will also miss the upcoming home series against Sri Lanka and Australia but has been named in the India A squad for the tour of New Zealand.
Stankovic, who moved to India in 2012, has made appearances in Bollywood films like Satyagraha, Fukrey Returns and Zero. She was also part of the reality show Bigg Boss in 2014.
