It’s still an early phase of his cricketing career but Hardik Pandya has found himself in the middle of a controversy. After suspension, now a case has been registered against Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul and Karan Johar in Jodhpur, reported news agency ANI.
According to ANI, the case has been registered in Jodhpur for comments made during Koffee with Karan in December last year. In December last year, cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul had appeared on Koffee with Karan Season 6 and were highly criticized for their comments on the show.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) suspended the players and even sent them back from Australia, where they were playing for a series against the Aussies. The extent of the backlash has been such that even the broadcaster Star TV, has removed the episode from its online streaming platform, Hotstar.
Ace-cricketer Hardik Pandya too took to Instagram and apologised for his misogynistic comments publicly.
The cricketers, Hardik in particular, were accused of making sexist comments, talking casually about their dating and sex life and for objectifying women in the ‘Koffee with Karan’ episode aired on January 6. They were dropped from the tour of Australia going on then and had returned to India. While the episode has been pulled off air, the duo tendered apologies to the board.
