Ever since the cricketer duo Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul went to the sets of Koffee with Karan, they have been catching all the negative attention for their derogatory and disrespectful remarks against women on the show.
Hotstar, for all the reasons and negative publicity of the episode, resultantly, deleted the episode. Now, when it seemed like the boys are getting rid of the trouble a case has been registered against the objectifying remarks they gave on the show.
After enormous social media backlash and suspension from BCCI, a case has been filed against them in a Jodhpur Police Station. This time, not only the cricketers seem to be in trouble but the host of the show Karan Johar additionally has his name involved in the case. Since the suspension of the duo was lifted, the former captain of India, Mohammed Azharuddin that Pandya and Rahul’s on-field performance should be speaking for them now.
Pandya’s mentor Kiran More said that the cricketer has been very upset for the controversy but currently his focus is on cricket only.
"Absolutely [was expecting him to make an immediate impact on comeback]. He is a very talented cricketer, no doubt about it. He had no bad intentions at all. The chat show incident happened. That's what shows the character of the cricketer. He is a cricketer who works very hard and gives his 100% whenever he plays for his teams. Happy he has made a huge comeback. Definitely, he was very disturbed [during the Koffee with Karan row]. Good, he has made a huge impact straight away," added Pandya’s mentor.
"Now, he is clear about his cricket. His focus is on cricket and he showed how much he wants to play for India in New Zealand. The suspension for him was like getting dropped from the India team. For him, it was like he was trying to make a comeback. He and Rahul both of them have realised they made mistakes. He is mentally so strong and it has shown with the way he has made the comeback," said More.
Well, it seems like the controversy is not leaving the boys any sooner.
