On Sunday’s episode of Koffee With Karan season 6, host and filmmaker Karan Johar welcomed two cricketers on his couch for the first time. Young and fierce cricket stars, Hardik Pandy and KL Rahul were invited on the show as Karan’s way of accepting more cricket in his life and paying a homage to the sport.
Hardik was his usual confident self as he talked about his affinity for black culture and how he had never been a good student. He also talked about his love and sex life with great ease while KL couldn’t help but feel embarrassed.
The two were seen talking about their unheard past and their off-field lives.Basically, it was all about party and girls from both the players and fans were totally not impressed. The social media users found it uncool and even lashed out at them for objectifying women.
Talking about his style inspiration, Hardik said he has always been a fan of how the black community expresses itself through style and fashion. He said people often wonder if he is from the West Indies.
When asked about his days in the school, he said he would fail every year after Class 2 but the school helped him pass to maintain their pass ratio. He said he would often just write his name and roll number on the exam sheet and his teachers and parents knew he would never take studies seriously. Hardik said he hasn’t finished his education beyond Class 9.
Karan asked KL about the embarrassing moment when his mother found a condom in his room when he was 18 and asked his father to scold him for it. While his father did thrash him, he later praised him for practising safe sex. Hardik jumped into the conversation by saying that his parents are too cool about his sex life. He said he tells them on his own “Aaj karke aaya (I did it today).” Karan couldn’t believe a family could be so easy about such things.

Sample some of the statements made by Hardik Pandya in response to questions that themselves were loaded with innuendo.
Q: “Why don’t you ask women their name in a club? What do you talk about, then?”
A: “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move.”
Internet went furious on the absurd comment of Hardik and roasted him like never before :

I know #HardikPandya is star and all but @BCCI should teach him how to show some respect for women. You can’t say on National television that ” Waah Aaj tu karke aaya hai ” (Sex) there are lot of people who thinks you as their inspiration.Treating women like another MOM trophy.

The first ever episode of #KoffeeWithKaran where I couldn’t sit through the one-hour show … #HardikPandya proved he is a 9th standard failure … no education, no etiquette & no respect towards women … what a waste of time!!!

Such classless act from #HardikPandya what is the example these cricketers are setting for future generation. Those were the days when Dravid and Sachin use to be so humble. Miss those cricketers.

#HardikPandya family asks him “inme se Kis kis ko liya hain tuney” “who all have you fucked between them women.”@BCCIofficials should apologise because of his behaviour and his perpetual habit of objectifying women as objects of sex.#KoffeeWithCricketers #KoffeeWithHardik

Cricket was supposed to be a gentleman’s game… Now it’s all about misplaced attitude. #HardikPandya showed what an uncultured and misogynistic person he is.. What does he mean by “main karke aaya” disgusting is the word. This is how they view women?.. What has he done in life?

Apparently the cheerleaders are to cheer the players after the match and @BCCI hotel rooms are used for bringing in girls.

In the rapid fire round, KL says Dhadak was an overrated film but was embarrassed when Karan revealed that he was the producer of the film. He said he would love to take Katrina Kaif out on a date, Arjun Kapoor is an overrated actor and chose Virat Kohli as the better batsman than Sachin Tendulkar.
On his turn, Hardik said he would like to take Kareena Kapoor on a date, his go-to pick up like is ‘Hard-d**k always’, he also said that he found Akshay Kumar’s Gold to be overrated. He said he would marry Parineeti Chopra, hook-up with Esha Gupta and kill Urvashi Rautela.
