Hardik Pandya is currently accompanying India’s white-ball team on the Sri Lanka tour. However, Hardik Pandya’s wife Natasa Stankovic & son Agastya didn’t accompany Hardik on the Sri Lanka tour. But the mother-son duo enjoys ongoing ODI series like other fans on a digital screen.
Recently Natasa shared their son Agastya’s reaction when Hardik Pandya was bowling for India in the first ODI against Sri Lanka. Natasa shared Agastya’s picture on her Instagram story. Agastya was unamused with his father’s presence on the TV screen. In the small clip, Natasa tried to divert Agastaya’s attention towards his father who was on-screen. She even murmured the words ‘Dada’ so that Agastya could relate with words & might catch attention on the screen that featured dad Hardik Pandya. But Agastya’s attention remained engrossed in the placard he had in his hands.
After repeated efforts, Agastya finally recognized his father & mutter ‘Dada’ but soon resorted to his playful activities with the card.
