Koffee With Karan, the ever so charming, informal yet engaging talk show which has been ruling the roost with respect to film talk shows for a long time has seen Karan Johar hosting a variety of personalities from the filmy world..
But for the first time ever in it’s history, Koffee With Karan witnessed an episode which had two people who had nothing to do with films as they belong from the field of cricket, the names being the new sensations of Indian Cricket, Hardik Pandya and K.L Rahul.
The duo were invited to be guests on Karan Johar’s show to have a nice and cosy chat with the charismatic Karan.
However seems like this decision of their’s to accept the invitation and go to KWK Season 6 has proved to be a disaster for both.. No we are not blaming Karan Johar here for anything.. It’s probably just another incident of inviting self trouble..
K.L and Hardik engaged in a freewheeling chat with Karan and seems like the duo got so carried away with the format that they end up saying ‘misogynistic’ things for women thereby inviting lot of criticism and flak for themselves on social media and in the public eye.
On the show, Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and also how open he has been about it with his parents.
When asked why he didn’t ask women their name in a club, Pandya responded by saying, “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.”
This hasn’t gone down well with people of the country and eventually BCCI which has made BCCI send a showcause notice to both the cricketers to which they have given 24 hours to respond..Not just that BCCI representative added that if needed cricketers might even be barred from attending such shows which have got nothing to do with cricket.
While K.L is yet to come up with an apology, Hardik has tweeted his apology claiming –
“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.”
Well seems like Hardik’s apparent ‘cool and badass’ nature has backfired on him and instead of cooling, has turned the situation hotter and hostile, something he definitely didn’t expect. We wait to see whether K.L Rahul will come up with an explanation with a similar line of thought or will he be having his own ways..
