Hotstar Pulls Hardik Pandya’s Koffee with Karan Episode Following Controversy Over Misogynistic Remarks

Hardik Pandya KL Rahul suspended will not be considered for 1st ODI against Australia

India will not be fielding Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul in Saturday's ODI series-opener against Australia after Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Diana Edulji recommended a suspension pending inquiry for their controversial comments on women during a TV show.

Hotstar has not issued a statement giving the reason for taking the episode off the air, but it has removed promotional pictures related to it from platforms such as Instagram.

Edulji had initially suggested a two-match suspension for the duo but referred the matter to the legal cell after CoA chief Vinod Rai agreed with her and recommended the same.

He also took the opportunity to distance himself from the comments made by Pandya and Rahul. Now, some internet sleuths have digged up an old clip of actor Ranveer Singh from an older season of Koffee with Karan, making what many are calling "sexist" remarks.

The duo who were on a talk show were slammed for the misogynist comments made on the show and even the BCCI slapped KL and Pandya with a show cause notice.

"I think this is the way to go", he responded when asked about the suspension. "And they were like, 'Waah, proud of you beta'".

"I like to watch and observe how they (women) move".

DNA expert weighs in on Hacienda Healthcare sex assault case
The now-former CEO of Hacienda HealthCare , Bill Timmons , has also stayed silent about exactly what he knew and when he knew it. In the wake of the reports, the Arizona Department of Health Services said new safety measures have been implemented.


"I am a little from the black side, so I have to see how they move first".

"The two concerned players have felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened". "While Rahul chose the sensible answer, "[It's] up to the woman", the outspoken Pandya chimed in: "Nahi nahi, aisa kuch nahi hai.

"Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

"I made an appearance on the chat show where I have made certain statements without realising that these could be disrespectful and offend sensitivities of viewers for which I am sincerely regretful", stated Pandya's response, as quoted by PTI.

In case the two are brought back from Australia, the likes of Rishabh Pant and Manish Pandey will be in contention to be their replacements.

"Yesterday, and some time before that as well, we have all been waiting for a decision by the board".
