Cricketers in India are much more than just sports stars. They enjoy a popularity that is almost on par with that of Bollywood celebrities.
There is also a lot of hype surrounding their looks and style statement and so, they’re at the receiving end of a lot of female attention too! The latest cricketer to join the bandwagon is the young lad from Baroda, Hardik Pandya. After performing exceptionally well in the past few series, it seems like this cricketer is getting popular with the ladies.
Recently, after a brilliant game against Australia, the 23-year-old’s explosive knock garnered a lot of plaudit on social media, including appreciation from former IPL anchor and actress Shibani Dandekar.
The duo exchanged a flattering conversation on Twitter, with Shibani lauding the all-rounder. “hardikpandya you are gangsta,” Shibani tweeted, to which Hardik replied, “Hahaa thank you shiiiii.” Shibani then could not resist herself from blowing a kiss in the air to Hardik and wrote “muaaah beast mode.”
Earlier, Bollywood diva Sushmita Sen was impressed with Hardik after his heroic effort in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 against Pakistan.
Sushmita had then written, “Now that’s how we play the game when all chips look down. How sexy to see 6-6-6. I love u Pandya!”
Hardik has also been linked with model Lisha Sharma, with whom he has denied having a relationship. That said, there was a photo of them circulating and by the looks of it, there was love.
“Just wanted to clear once and for all, I have been single and focusing on my game since a long time! Again and again, this rumour or the picture comes out! It doesn’t justify the hard work we do! I would really appreciate ending this rumour! And let’s end it for all. Thank you, Love all, Hardik,” he tweeted on this year’s Valentine’s Day.
