Hardik Pandya’s Father Comes to His Defence Following Koffee With Karan 6 Controversy

As controversy rages around the latest episode of Koffee With Karan and the inappropriate and sexist comments made by cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, the channel, Star World, has chose to pull off the episode from Hotstar. "This one", he had said on Koffee with Karan.

And now the recent update on that front is that, Hardik Pandya may have to face two match ban wherein he wouldn't be allowed to perform for two of them. Also, the channel Star World which airs the show on television has removed all the teasers and photos of the episode from its official social media handles. The ongoing season 6 had current sportsmen Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul as guests in an episode that aired last week.

The comments made by Rahul and Pandya were unanimously deemed to be "sexist" and "misogynistic". "Respect." Pandya had sparked a controversy when he revealed on the sets of the show that he had relationships with multiple women.

"At a party, my parents asked me, 'Acha tera wala kaun sa hai [Which women are yours]?" "And I actually had to tell them. I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move". "I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women) and they were like 'Waah, proud of you beta", Pandya claimed. Rahul answered saying, "up to the woman" while an outspoken Hardik said: "Nahi nahi aisa kuch nahi hai, talent pe hota hai".

As the controversy built up in the following days, Pandya took to Twitter Wednesday to issue an apology: "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who [sic] I may have hurt in any way". In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. He said, "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated". India are scheduled to start a three-match ODI series against Australia from Saturday. The duo faced major backlash on social media.
