Cricketer Hardik Pandya has been known for his flambuoyance off the cricket field as much as the player has garnered media’s attention while playing the gentleman’s game.
The cricketer, who was earlier linked with Elli AvrRam and Urvashi Rautela, is now being rumoured to be dating Esha Gupta. DNA website quoted a close source as saying, “Elli wanted a commitment, while Hardik was looking for something casual. This led to a lot of arguments between them and they called it quits.” Elli had even attended Hardik’s brother Krunal’s wedding last December, which sparked their dating rumours.
This despite the fact that the cricketer was seen partying with Urvashi as recently as April this year, when their photos together went viral, giving rise to rumours of their affair. Quoting a source, DNA reported, “They (Esha and Hardik) met at a party and hit it off immediately. The duo started chatting up, exchanged numbers and before we knew, they were an item.”
“Right now, both of them are hush-hush about their budding romance. They want to see how things turn out. They make their lunch and dinner plans secretively and want to avoid the public glare. Currently, they are in the phase where they are getting to know each other,” the source added.
Entertainment website Spotboye reported that once, Esha had gone to drop Hardik at Mumbai airport and after that they were spotted together during an ad shoot at Filmistan Studio. It remains to be seen if India will see another cricketer tying the knot with a Bollywood actor, just like we were witnessed to in Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.
Esha Gupta was recently slut-shamed after she posted videos and photos on Instagram. The bold actor, victim of online trolling on several occasions in the past, had wished her critics got a job.
