The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday shared an adorable clip, on social media, of India all-rounder Hardik Pandya getting a surprise visit from his son Agastya during an interview. The video has become an instant hit as fans cannot stop gushing about the adorable interaction between the father-son duo. “This will melt your heart,” ICC captioned the video on Instagram. Hardik’s Indian Premier League (IPL) team Mumbai Indians (MI), too, dropped a comment on the post, saying, “it sure did.”
The footage starts with Agastya walking into the room. Soon, his face lights up after he sees Hardik sitting on a chair. The cricketer then asks his son, “How are you”? However, it seems, rather than his father, something else is occupying Agastya’s mind, as he could be seen pointing towards something with his finger.
Hardik then asks his son if he could finish the interview and then come. But after not getting any reaction from his son, Hardik decides to do the interview with his son. After that, the interviewer shows Hardik an image from the time when Agastya was born. On seeing that picture, Hardik asks his son, if he recognises the infant in the picture. However, Agastya, too engrossed in his thoughts, could be heard saying “papa”.
Describing the special day, Hardik said that he told his partner Natasa Stankovic that he would not be in the room with everything happening. However, he somehow managed to stay and then saw his son. Hardik also joked about how tiny his son looked when he was born compared to now.
After that, Hardik decided to do the interview alone.
