Koffee With Karan season 6 finally saw two cricketers gracing the show. The new guns of Indian Cricket Team, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, made their debut on the chat show. While KL Rahul was goofy yet interesting to watch, Hardik Pandya was more on problematic side.
In the whole episode, he could not stop himself from boasting about womanizing and that did not go down well with the netizens. As Karan Johar spoke about the personal lives of the cricketers, KL Rahul praised how Hardik Pandya is very open about his personal life to his family. He narrated an incident where he had gone to a party with his parents and they asked him with whom he had a ‘scene’. He said, “And I actually had to tell them. ‘This one. This one. This one.” He also spoke about losing his virginity and how he openly boasted it to his parents, “Aaj mai kar ke aaya.” (I did it today).
When asked to choose better batsman between Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar, he chose the current Indian Cricket Team Captain. These comments did not go down well with the netizens as they brutally slammed the cricketer for his toxic masculinity and misogynistic statements.
