Exclusive !! What did Hardik Pandya say at Koffee with Karan? – Desi Express Magazine
Hardik Pandya has found himself in the middle of deep puddle following the controversial remarks over women that he made at the famous talk-show, Koffee with Karan. The extent of the backlash has been such that even the broadcaster Star TV, has removed the episode from its online streaming platform,
While a decision from the BCCI over the extent of the bans for both Hardik and KL Rahul remains pending, the cricketers’ immediate future in the team also hangs in balance.
Hardik ‘got carried away’ with the format of the show. Three separate apologies reportedly have been issues – on social media, to the BCCI and to head coach Ravi Shastri and senior-most member MS Dhoni – but the worst is yet to come.
Hardik on twitter
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.

Controversial statements made by the all-rounder during the show:
“Why don’t you ask women’s names at nightclubs?” asked Johar when Hardik replied saying he struggles in remembering names of the women he interacts with during such parties. “I like to watch and observe how they move. I’m little from the Black side so I need to see how they move,” Pandya responded.
He dwelled onto his sex life suggesting, “When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, Main karke aaya hai aaj (I did it today)”. Further highlighting the casual take on the subject from his parents, the 25-year-old revealed how “cool” he is with his family members.
“At a party my parents asked me acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai (Which are your women)? I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women) and they were like waah proud of you beta,” Pandya asserted.
Another question from Karan Johar that attracted a debatable response from the two cricketers was, “If you all hit on the same women, then how do you decide?”. Rahul answered saying, “up to the woman” while an outspoken Hardik said: “Nahi nahi aisa kuch nahi hai, talent pe hota hai. Jisko mila woh leke jao (Nothing like that, it’s about talent, whoever gets them, takes them)”.
