Recently, Kl Rahul and Hardik Pandya were invited in the controversial chat show Koffee with Karan hosted by Karan Johar. Koffee with Karan’s set has always been producing controversies.
The latest controversy was the episode starring KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya. The young Players came to enjoy the show but became a part of the controversy unfortunately after their sexist and misogynist comments. Hotstar who has been regularly streaming all Koffee with Karn episodes has taken down the episode starring KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya. More than that, both the talented cricket players got in trouble after their comments.
The COA has sent a notice to the cricketers asking for an explanation and based on the explanation, the two young cricketers might be banned from playing cricket matches. Pandya apologized via Twitter on the same and wrote- “After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned whom 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.”
While KL Rahul was not the one spoking much of the controversial comments, still he got in trouble just for being in the show with Pandya. Kl Rahul has not expressed his views on the matter till now. Here are some controversial comments that Pandya passed in the show. In the show, Hardik explained why he did not ask the names of the women he met in Nightclub. He said- “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move [in nightclubs]. I’m little from the Black side so I need to see how they move.” He did not stop there, he further said- “At a party, my parents asked me acha Tera Wala (women) Kaun Sa hai so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women) and they were like waah proud of u beta.” This was not all, hen Kran asked Pandya- “If Y’all hit on the same women, then how you decide?” Pandya’s answer on this was- Ya up to the woman”, Pandya further added”Nahi Nahi Aisa Kuch Nahi Hai, talent pe Hota Hai. Jiso Mila Woh Leke jao.”I like to spank, bando ko Dhappad Karke dene ka, Unko Lagta Hoga Mere Liye normal hai,” which was rather assumed to be sexual harassment.
These were some of the most controversial comments Pandya passed on the show. KL Rahul also said Rahul said that he partied in Miami till the morning of the match and only returned in the morning to find that he is a part of the playing XI.
This was more of Pandya’s mistake that put Kl Rahul also in the problem. CAO has been demanding a ban of to matches for the 2 cricketers, though the punishment is not decided yet. These two guys might get a harder punishment from the Board.
The Captain Koli expressed his views on the same- “From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don’t support and the two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what’s happened. Definitely, it has to hit anyone hard, they will definitely understand the things that have not gone right.”
