India’s one of the most famous television shows -Koffee With Karan always comes out with controversy or a drama. The show is basically a talk show where celebrities are invited for a chat with the famous Bollywood director and producer-Karan Johar. Karan recently started its 6th season and invited the most unanticipated and surprising celebrities together as guests. On one of its recent episodes, the host invited two cricketers which surprised the audience in all possible ways. Hardik Pandya and Kannanur Lokesh (KL) Rahul were a treat to watch on the talk show.
Both had discussions we had never seen them do in any gathering. And the same garnered negative comments as well. Social media is now full of people who found Pandya’s statements -vulgar and disgusting. The cricketer talked about his sex life and was open to a lot of private things that created controversies. He has been accused of misogyny by a lot of Twitterati. In a promo video, Karan asked his guests which one of them was likely to get distracted by cheerleaders when Rahul replied, “He’s been with all of them.” The cricketer also revealed that he has received messages of girls appealing that Pandya sent one same flirty text to two girls at a time.
Imagine going to your mother n talking about losing your virginity saying "aaj mai kar ke aaya"

After receiving criticism for their statements on the show, Hardik came forward to apologise for his sexist comments. “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,” he wrote.
CoA chief Vinod Rai told PTI that Pandya and Rahul will have 24 hours to explain the remarks they made on the show. “We have sent show cause notices to Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul for their comments. They have given 24 hours to give an explanation.”
