Reddit suspects Natasa Stankovic, Hardik Pandya have split: Changed name, IPL absence, removed pics and more | Bollywood

Social media chatter speculates on the status of Natasa Stankovic and Hardik Pandya’s relationship. The couple tied the knot on May 31, 2020, and embraced parenthood with the birth of their son Agastya on July 30, 2020. Natasa, a Serbian model and actress, faced cyber harassment in March 2024 connected to Hardik’s less than stellar cricketing spells. A recent Reddit discussion titled ‘Natasa and Hardik separated?’ has caught the public eye.

Instagram Name Change Fuels Speculation

A user on Reddit raised eyebrows on Tuesday, noting, “This is purely conjecture. However, there’s a noticeable silence on Instagram Stories from both parties. Natasa formerly included ‘Natasa Stankovic Pandya’ in her Instagram handle, but has recently ditched it altogether.”

The discussion also pointed out, “Natasa celebrated her birthday on March 4th, absent a greeting from Hardik; she has purged most of their shared photos, sparing only those featuring their son Agastya. Additionally, Natasa has been conspicuously absent from the IPL spectator seats and has ceased sharing anything related to the team. Though Krunal and Pankhuri still engage with her content, the dynamics between the couple seem amiss.”

Internet Buzzes Over Potential Split

The rumor mill on Reddit has been active with opinions. One individual remarked, “Not shocked in the slightest.” Another mentioned, “So there was a comment on that Gill expose thread about Hardik’s infidelity. Apparently, he was spotted in London with another lady.”

A cautious Redditor suggested it might be too soon for conclusions, “She hasn’t gotten rid of all their photos, so it might be premature to draw any conclusions. Regarding the IPL absence, it’s possible Hardik might have advised her to steer clear since she was already the target of trolls merely for being his partner.”

Another opined, “The torrent of IPL criticism and negative attention towards Hardik may be the reason, potentially leading to him asking her to keep a low profile. It’s not unusual in this country for sportsmen’s spouses to face backlash or even threats. Recalling the harassment directed at Dhoni’s young daughter, it’s plausible they’re exercising caution.”

Amidst the IPL 2024 season, Natasa became the focal point for derogatory remarks on social media, as trolls blamed her for Hardik’s lackluster performance on the field, particularly as the Mumbai Indians battled through a tough start in the tournament.
