Ever since the episode of “Koffee With Karan” featuring Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul went on air, there has been a huge buzz on social media over the controversial comments made by Pandya in particular.
While fans slammed BCCI for allowing the two cricketers to appear on the show, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has suspended the duo until final adjudication of the matter.
Amid the ongoing furore, the controversial episode has been taken down by the streaming platform Hotstar.
Here are the seven most controversial statements which Pandya and Rahul made on the show:
1.) Hardik Pandya on girls
I have to see how they (girls) move first. I’ve to imagine the picture.
2.) KL Rahul on mother finding out his condom
I was just about 18, when my mother found it (condom) and she made my dad yell at me. So obviously my dad, in front of my mother, gave me a proper hearing and then she went to sleep. Then he (his father) slowly came into my bedroom, he slid me the thing and said, “I’m very happy you are using it, like you should be safe”.
3.) Hardik Pandya on losing virginity
With my family, I’ve been open about everything… When I lost my virginity, I told them: “Aaj karke aaya (I did it, today).”
4.) Hardik Pandya about telling his family about the girls he has dated
There was this party where my parents were sitting and they’re like, “Teri wali kaun kaun hai (Who all are yours?)”
Actually, I sat with them and I was like, ‘Yeh, yeh, wo… sabke saath kuch na kuch raha hai mera (This, this…I’ve got something with everyone)”.
They said, “Waahh… (Wow), we are proud of you beta.”
5.) Dating cheerleaders
Karan: Who is most likely to be distracted by cheerleaders during a match?

KL Rahul: He’s been with all of them.

Karan: Who has copy-pasted the same flirty text to multiple women?

Hardik: But why? It’s the same thing I feel for them.
