Watch: Natasa Stankovic adds fuel to the fire as she responds to divorce rumors with Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya and wife Natasa Stankovic

Hardik Pandya has been grabbing headlines for all the wrong reasons of late. The Indian all-rounder is now in the news because of his personal life.

According to recent reports, all is not well between him and his wife Natasa Stankovic, and they have also separated. The rumor has been circulating viciously on social media for quite some time now. It all started after a user’s publication on social networks.

The user claimed that Pandya and Stankovic do not post on Instagram stories and also claimed that the actress changed her username from ‘Natasa Stankovic Pandya’ to ‘Natasa Stankovic’.

The user also pointed out that Natasa was not seen in the stands during IPL 2024 before claiming that the all-rounder did not even post anything on her birthday which was March 4. Some reports also claim that Natasa would acquire 70 per cent ownership of the cricketer if they were separated. Rumors spread like wildfire as fans had different reactions.

Neither Hardik nor Natasha have publicly addressed the rumors so far. However, a journalist asked the actress about it on Sunday. In response to divorce rumors, Natasa refused to give a clear answer and walked away from her saying “thank you.”

Hardik Pandya’s disappointing campaign:

Hardik Pandya has also faced severe criticism for his disappointing performance in IPL 2024. Leading the Mumbai Indians, the all-rounder failed to calm down and struggled throughout the competition. Fans constantly attacked him when they expressed their displeasure over Rohit Sharma’s removal as captain.

Pandya could not perform as a captain or as an all-rounder. Under his captaincy, Mumbai Indians finished at the bottom of the points table with just 4 wins in 14 games. With the bat, he scored 216 runs besides taking 11 wickets with an economy rate of 10.75.

He will be seen in action next month when the T20 World Cup begins and will be looking to deliver results. He has been named India’s vice-captain for the tournament. It will be his first assignment for India since the ODI World Cup last year.
