“She had no idea who I was. I got her by talking. She saw someone in a hat at a place where I met her, wearing a hat, a chain, a watch, at 1 AM. So she thought he is ‘alag prakaar ka aadmi aaya’. That is when I started talking to her, started knowing each other. Then, we started dating. Then got engaged on December 31”, Hardik had told Cricbuzz in one of his recent interviews.
Moreover, Hardik Pandya was nursing a back injury after the world cup last year. The cricketer underwent surgery and as a result, was out of action in the second half of 2019.
