Hours after making his relationship with Serbian model and actor Natasa Stankovic official on social media, Hardik Pandya announced that they were engaged, taking fans by surprise. In an interview with The Times Of India, the cricketer’s father Himanshu Pandya has said that they had no inkling about it either.

“Natasa is a very nice girl, and we have met her in Mumbai on a number of occasions. We knew that they were going on a vacation to Dubai, but had no clue that they were going to get engaged. This took us by surprise. We came to know about it after they got engaged,” he said.

When prodded about the wedding, Himanshu said that Hardik and Natasa were yet to zero in on a date. “We haven’t decided on that yet, but I am sure that it will be decided soon,” he said.

Meanwhile, a close friend of Hardik revealed that the couple is not planning to get married just yet. “I had been invited for the engagement but could not attend it, since it was in Dubai and I was busy with some work. It was a sudden development, and I was informed just about a week back. They have no immediate plans of tying the knot, and it might happen later in the year or even next year,” the friend told the daily.

Hardik popped the question on a yacht during his New Year getaway with Natasa in Dubai. In the videos of the proposal shared by her on Instagram, he is seen getting down on one knee and putting a ring on her finger, as a band sings Sun Mere Humsafar in the background. The couple then proceeds to cut a ring box-shaped cake with ‘HP loves NATS’ written on it. “Forever yes @hardikpandya93,” she captioned the post.

“Mai tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. 01.01.2020 #engaged,” Hardik wrote, sharing glimpses of their engagement on Instagram. Natasa was seen flaunting the huge rock on her finger in one of the pictures.
