Cricketer Hardik Pandya rang in the New Year with great news! He got engaged to Bigg Boss fame actress, Natasa Stankovic. Well, Natasa isn't Hardik's first love. Both, Natasa and Hardik have had their share of heartbreaks, flings and romances. If media reports are to be believed, Hardik and Natasa met each other at a nightclub and fell for each other. Hardik was quick to introduce Natasa to his family and she visited his family to celebrate Diwali together. Buzz has it that Natasa also attended a few cricket parties and is already a favourite among Hardik's friends.
The couple, however, hasn't said much about their love story. To be together, both of them said goodbyes to their alleged lovers.Hardik, especially, has been linked up with many actresses in the past few years. Let's dig into the past, shall we?
Here's a long list of the B-Town celebrities Hardik allegedly dated before finding 'forever' in Natasa Stankovic.
He was linked to Hate Story 4 actress Urvashi Rautela for a brief period of time. She was reportedly friends with both Pandya brothers but then her equation with Hardik changed a little. According to media reports, the actress congratulated Hardik and Natasa on their engagement. She wrote, "Best wishes on your engagement. May your relationship always be filled with lots of love and happiness. On your engagement, I wish you both a wonderful life and an everlasting love."
The cricketer dated Bigg Boss fame actress Elli AvRam for the longest period of time. Their relationship was one of the most talked-about in showbiz. The two used to attend weddings together and were also often spotted with each other at various outings. The actress was last seen in Amazon Prime Original, Inside Edge Season 2, and isn't dating anyone at present.
Back in September 2017, Hardik's link up with actress Parineeti Chopra took everyone by surprise. Rumours started doing rounds after Parineeti tweeted a post, captioning it, "The perfect trip with the most amazing partner? Love is in the air". To this, Hardik replied, "Can I guess? I think this is a second Bollywood-Cricket link. :p Great click by the way." Later, both of them clarified that they are not dating each other.
Take a look at their romantic chat that fuelled the gossip mills.
Shibani's congratulatory message for Hardik back in 2017 sparked off dating rumours. The trigger, however, did not last and the actress, singer, and model, on the other hand, is in a relationship with actor Farhan Akhtar.

The cricketer, however, put an end to the relationship rumours by sharing a post on Valentine's Day 2017. Take a look at it!
Shortly after he parted ways with Elli, Hardik was rumoured to be seeing actress Esha Gupta. According to reports, the two also met at a party and instantly hit it off (well, well, isn;t this how he met Natasa as well. Just saying...).
Natasa, on the other hand, has dated Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor Aly Goni. They appeared together as a couple in dance reality show Nach Baliye season 9. The two called it quits stating cultural differences and compatibility issues.
