India all-rounder Hardik Pandya turned 26 on Friday (October 11). The Baroda cricketer is away from family and friends on his birthday as he’s currently in the UK and recovering from back surgery.
On Saturday (October 5), Hardik underwent successful surgery in London for an acute lower-back injury. And later, he uploaded a video of himself walking in the hospital room and using the wheelchair to move from one place to another.

While he continues to recover from his injury, Pandya has got the sweetest of gifts from his alleged girlfriend and Serbian actress Natasa Stankovic.
As per the reports in SpotboyE, Natasa recently met Hardik’s family, including his brother Krunal’s wife, Pankhuri Sharma. It was also claimed that Jr. Pandya introduced Natasha to his family as his girlfriend and is pretty serious about her.
But Natasa’s heartfelt message on Hardik’s 26th birthday almost settles all speculations. She wrote her heart out in the post and wished Hardik for a better year ahead and his fast recovery.
“To my best friend, the strongest and the most beautiful soul. This year has been a roller coaster ride for you. Many great things happen and some were not that great but definitely have made you stronger. You have been such an inspiration for all of us and I couldn’t be more proud of you for everything you have done for yourself and people around you, for everything you have gone through and still decided to stand tall and get out of it like a winner. Keep shining, smiling and getting stronger. You are on the right track. Stay focused. I’ll always have your back. Happy bday HP,” God bless you @hardikpandya93 #happyface,” Stankovic wrote on Instagram.
Natasa is currently participating in a dance reality show ‘Nach Baliye’ with her ex-boyfriend Aly Goni.
