Koffee with Karan – Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul

When popular cricket duo Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul went on a Karan’s show, he asked them about their virginity and personal life, to which Pandya said, “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’,”. This answer landed Karan, Hardik and apparently Rahul in the worst situation. After holding a long silence KJo broke his silence and apologised to everyone on his twitter handle.
