India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya turned 25 on Thursday as the cricketing fraternity queued up to wish him all day. He shares his birthday with the legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan and felt that he is lucky to be born on the same day as the senior artist. Hardik also received a wonderful gift in the form of a pet which he named ‘Bentley’ and welcomed him to the family on the eve of a special day.
Pandya is currently injured and recovering from his lower back injury which the cricketer sustained during the Asia Cup in September. This gave him an opportunity to spend some valuable time with his family and was also able to stay with them during his birthday. The pictures and the videos of the celebrations surfaced on the social media all day as even the fans were left in awe.
