You have been such an inspiration for all of us and I couldn’t be more proud of you for everything you have done for yourself and people around you, for everything you have gone through and still decided to stand tall and get out of it like a winner.
Keep shining, smiling and getting stronger. You are on the right track. Stay focused. I’ll always have your back. Happy bday HP God bless you @hardikpandya93 #happyface.”

She had no idea who I was.” The cricketer had also revealed his parents’ reaction on finding out about his engagement and had stated, “My parents also didn’t know that I was getting engaged.
