The latest episode which was aired on Sunday, showed Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul talking about their relationships, crushes, favourite movies, actors and actresses.While Rahul kept a level head on his shoulders and chose his words very carefully while replying to Karan Johar’s questions throughout the show, it was Hardik Pandya who got carried away and never really seemed like he quite understood what he was saying throughout the hour-long show.Pandya might have finally realised what he said did not go down well with his fans and followers of the popular talk show and took to Twitter to apologise for his 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,” Pandya posted on Twitter.pic.twitter.com/O0UlpFm43ohardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) January 9, 2019But it seems that Pandya’s apology has come a little too late with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) now taking note of what all was said.It is understood that a section of the BCCI wants it’s decision makers to penalise Hardik Pandya for his comments on Koffee with Karan.”What Hardik has spoken at the show speaks poorly of the BCCI and Indian cricket. An apology is not enough and strong action should be taken so that right example can be set for the younger generation,” an official said.advertisementThe Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) sent show cause notices to both the players hours after Pandya issued his apology on Twitter. The duo have been given 24 hours to reply to the notices.It is all very well to issue show-cause notices now to KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya. But I do wish the BCCI spends time in sensitising these young players to life beyond the dressing room; to getting them outside the bubble that is inevitable given the adulation they get.Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 9, 2019On the show, Hardik Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and even spoke about how open he is with his parents. Hardik Pandya revealed that he even informed his parents that he lost his virginity by telling them, “Aaj mai kar ke aaya.””When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, ‘Main karke aya hai aaj (I had sex today)’. At a party my parents asked me ‘acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai [who is your interest here?] so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women)’ and they were like ‘waah proud of you beta’,” Pandya boasted.The 25-year-old also said things like, “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,” when Karan Johar asked him why he doesn’t ask women for their names in nightclubs.Rahul then went on to reveal how they both decide on who gets to date a girl when Karan Johar asked them what happens when both of them like a particular person? “Upto the woman,” Rahul replied.But Pandya interrupted and said, “Nahi nahi aisa kuch nahi hai, talent pe hota hai. Jisko mila woh leke jao. It is on talent.”Pandya is currently with the Indian team in Australia where they just registered a historic Test series win, the first in India’s Test history Down Under.Hardik Pandya had joined the team before the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne after recovering from the long-standing back injury which he had suffered during the Asia Cup in UAE last year.HHe didn’t get to play any Tests but was a part of the Test squad which retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after winning the series 2-1, courtesy the victories in the Adelaide and Melbourne Tests.India lost the second Test in Perth while the fourth match ended in a draw due to the poor weather conditions in Sydney which prevented India from pushing for victory in the final Test.Hardik Pandya is now gearing up for the three-match ODI series against Australia which starts in January 12 in Sydney. The focus will then shift to New Zealand where India will play a series of 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is from January 23.Also Read | Kohli better batsman than Tendulkar but Dhoni better captain: Rahul, PandyaAlso Read | Virat Kohli needs to calm down and go on a holiday mode: KL RahulAlso Read | Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul chatting with Karan Johar is not for the faint-heartedAlso Watch:advertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
