Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul has recently appeared in the latest episode of Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee with Karan season 6.
Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul got into trouble
But, the duo found themselves into trouble over their ‘sexist’ and ‘disrespectful’ remarks on women.
On the show, Hardik Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and even spoke about how open he is with his parents. Hardik Pandya revealed that he even informed his parents that he lost his virginity by telling them, “Aaj mai kar ke aaya.”
“When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, ‘Main karke aya hai aaj (I had sex today)’. At a party my parents asked me ‘acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai [who is your interest here?] so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women)’ and they were like ‘waah proud of you beta’,” Pandya boasted.
The 25-year-old also said things like, “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move,” when Karan Johar asked him why he doesn’t ask women for their names in nightclubs.
Hardik and KL Rahul have been under fire ever since the Koffee With Karan episode aired on January 6. The two cricketers on Wednesday were issued show cause notices by the BCCI, which took note of the massive outrage on social media and elsewhere.
Post this, Hardik issued an apology for the remarks and took to Twitter and wrote, “After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way. Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone’s sentiments. Respect.”
