Koffee with Karan 6

Open this

As per Committee of Administrators chairman Vinod Rai, Pandya and Rahul's explanations weren't convincing and he has recommended a two-match ban.

The backlash is so severe that even Hotstar, the digital streaming platform that aired the episode, has pulled it down following the controversy.

He also took the opportunity to distance himself from the comments made by Pandya and Rahul.

Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul appeared on Koffee With Karan season 6.

The comments made by Rahul and Pandya were unanimously deemed to be "sexist" and "misogynistic". Pandya was particularly guilty of derogating women as he narrated his off-field encounters.

He also shared that he openly identifies the women he sleeps with to his parents: "At a party my parents asked me acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai (Which are your women)?" "And they were like, 'Waah, proud of you beta'".

'Why don't you ask women's names at nightclubs?' asked Karan. "I think we need to give both of them a two-match suspension", Rai told IANS over email.


Johar pressed on throughout the episode, with one of his queries being how the Indian players decide if they happen to hit on the same woman.

Barely hours after Pandya's apology, BCCI handed the pair a show cause notice giving them 24 hours to explain their demeanour on the talk-show.

Pandya, for his part, has apologised for his comments saying he "got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

"I made an appearance on the chat show where I have made certain statements without realising that these could be disrespectful and offend sensitivities of viewers for which I am sincerely regretful", stated Pandya's response, as quoted by PTI. As for Rahul, considering that the cricketer didn't make any indecent remarks, it is being said that he may be left with just a warning.

The decision could turn dicey for the duo who are now in Australia for the ODI series.

"From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don't support", he said.
