Elli stayed inside the car and even tried to hide her face from the photographers. Mumbai-based photographer Viral Bhayani posted a photograph on his Instagram account.  The picture fetched many likes when the rumours grew stronger. The actress was earlier spotted at Hardik’s brother Krunal Pandya’s wedding ceremony in December last year.

Hardik is an integral part of the Indian team and featured during India’s away tour of South Africa. The all-rounder didn’t contribute much with the bat, but his fielding skills and decent bowling spells kept him in the good books. India won the ODI series in the rainbow nation for the first time by defeating the hosts on a 5-1 margin. Virat Kohli’s men also sealed the T20I series by 2-1.

Elli plays safe on the alleged affair

The actress didn’t deny the rumours completely and instead choose the middle path.

“Let them [people] be curious in life. Why do I need to clarify anything? By talking about these rumors, 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 told Hindustan Times.

She also added that it is part and parcel of the life of a celebrity and there is not much they can do about it.

“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 rumors.”
