Koffee with Karan Season 6 has been the talk of the town since Day 1. From the juiciest confessions to few major announcements, the season is doing very well till now. However, the recent episode of the show featuring Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul turned out to be a major let down. The reason behind the show getting negative coverage, all off a sudden is due to the sexist and racist responses from the players, especially Hardik Pandya. Once the episode went on air, the audience poured social media with aggression against the players for taking the show to all time low.
Hardik Pandya and his responses have hit him big time, including professionally. The cricketer openly talked about his dating life and relationships with the ladies, he met in the nightclubs. Further adding to it, was his statement on his family being proud of his casual sexual relationships. Another statement which raised the level of arrogance for the cricketer was about his pick-up line, he uses while approaching women.
The internet received a major turn off, by the collective answers of the duo when Karan Johar asked who is the better batsman – Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli? Both of them responded Virat Kohli. Soon after the response, the internet went insane posting memes on both Rahul and Hardik.
Currently, both Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have been suspended from all form of cricket until further notice. They have been sent back home from ongoing Australia Tour 2019. Pandya, after receiving a notice from BCCI, apologized on social media platform, saying that he got carried away and ended up making the most controversial statements ever on a public platform. However, the board does not feel this apology is enough on the contrary cricketers have been finally now barred from two matches. Also, Virat Kohli, in a recent interview, stated that the controversy will not lay an impact on the game against Australia and this will lead to an opportunity, to someone else in place of the duo.
According to the reports, this specific episode of Koffee with Karan has been removed from entertainment platforms including Hotstar. This certainly, will remain as one of the most controversial episodes ever in the history of Koffee with Karan and the show at its lowest ebb.
Cricket is a gentleman’s game surrounded by dignity and honesty. However, this turned out to be something which none would have ever expected from the players they adore on grounds.
