Mumbai: Team India cricketer Hardik Pandya has had a decent tour of South Africa so far. In the seven matches he has played so far, he has already picked up four wickets and scored 145 runs, including a half-century.
In January, it was reported that the all-rounder was dating Bollywood actress Elli AvrRam.
However, in a recent development, the actress spoke on her relationship with the cricketer.
“Let them (people) be curious in life. Why do I need to clarify anything? By talking about these rumours, I’d just be giving more fodder for gossip (material). Anyway, so many wrong things have been written over the years but I’ve never gone out and clarified (them),” she was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
"Once you become a known face, people will follow you for gossip and news. But, we are not going to lock ourselves up. So, you can’t do much to stop these rumours,” she added.
In an Instagram post uploaded by Shikhar Dhawan’s wife Aesha Dhawan, Elli was seen posing for a picture with wives of other cricketers like Ritika Sajdeh - wife of Rohit Sharma, Nupur Nagar - wife of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Radhika Rahane - Indian Test team skipper Ajinkya Rahane's wife - among others.
