As reported by a source, “Elli wanted a commitment, while Hardik was looking for something casual. This led to a lot of arguments between them and they called it quits.” A few months ago the name of Urvashi Rautela also came in the news because the cricketer and the actress were getting overtly friendly with each other at a party when Elli was not in town. This subsequently led to an altercation between the two actresses and eventually led to the break-up of Elli and Hardik.
As soon as Hardik and Elli split, the cricketer grew closer to Esha. A source revealed, “They met at a party and hit it off immediately. The duo started chatting up, exchanged numbers and before we knew, they were an item.” However, the two wants to keep their relationship under wraps and do not want to flaunt it. The source further said, “Right now, both of them are hush-hush about their budding romance. They want to see how things turn out. They make their lunch and dinner plans secretively and want to avoid the public glare. Currently, they are in the phase where they are getting to know each other.”
