At a time when the country is talking about MeToo and how women were assaulted by the men with power, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul went on to make some inappropriate comments about women on the controversial show, Koffee with Karan. Hardik’s views were under the belt misogynistic and boasted hooking up with multiple women. He told how his parents were cool with the fact when he told him about losing virginity. KL Rahul chose his words carefully but he too got stuck in this massive storm. Hardik’s comments created a stir on the social media.
Their comments have jeopardized their cricketing career as their return to the game would be delayed considering the level of comments passed on women whom they dated, especially Hardik. The cricketer did post an apology and that read as, “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.” Well, it was too late for Hardik to realize as the damage was already done.
Hardik has earlier been liked to Bollywood actor Elli AvrRam . The two were dating for a brief period of time and their pictures went viral. The two parted ways for unknown reasons. When asked about the whole fiasco and Hardik’s comments on the show, Elli, at an award show, said she just came back to India and she has been getting messages from journalists who have been asking her questions regarding this and she had no idea what they were talking about. But then she saw the viral video certain and she thinks it’s very sad.
“I got a little bit surprised because that’s not really the Hardik Pandya I personally once used to know! I think it’s great that people are reacting and putting their foot down on this kind of behaviour because it’s about time we all realize that this kind of mentality is not cool. Neither is it something to brag about,” added Elli AvrRam.
