Amid the ongoing controversy of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul’s controversial comments on TV show ‘Koffee with Karan 6’, an old video of Virat Kohli is doing the rounds on social media in which the Indian skipper is calling a girl ugly. In the video, host Anusha Dandekar is interviewing a much younger Kohli and asks him about his quickest date ever.
To this Virat replies that he left a date with a girl within 5 minutes because she was ugly. ‘I actually went on a blind date which ended in about five minutes. I saw the girl and I ran away.” Kohli says in the video. When asked why he had run away, Kohli replies, “she was ugly”. Have a look at the video below.

As soon as the video was shared on social media, Kohli was criticised by people for his insensitive comments for a girl. Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were recently criticised for their ‘sexist’ comments regarding girls on national TV, due to which both were dropped from the Australia ODI series and sent back to India. Virat Kohli responded on the controversy by saying that the Indian team does not stand with the comments of both and the comments were their personal opinions.
