The courteousness witnessed during the time of Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar has somehow extinguished now, there was a time when cricket and gallantry went hand in hand. Cricket is known as gentleman’s game for a reason. But, in the last episode of Koffee With Karan along with KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, there seemed to have happened a displeasing phase where Hardik Pandya projected himself as an outright misogynist.
It’s the era of Virat Kohli and his rough young Indian squad, known as much for their sledging as for their incredible victory in Australia. But after the latest Koffee with Karan episode, things have taken a nasty turn because of none other than Mr. ‘all-rounder’ Hardik Pandya.
The show commenced with Karan Johar introducing them as “two young, talented, brat-park cricketers,” and after the initial conversation about how Pandya, who has achieved quite a lot in cricket by now is an attention-seeking diva as well who likes to imitate “West Indian and Black culture,” the chat quickly took a turn towards relationships in a quintessential Koffee with Karan way. When interrogated about the women, he has dated or dating in life, Pandya replied that there was a distinction among seeing, dating and being in a relationship. This would prove to be one good perspective on women throughout the episode.
His dear friend Rahul’s account of how often Pandya forgets the names of women he is chatting up at clubs is hard to digest. Pandya goes on, there is “so much to talk man, so how can I remember the name”. He goes to the extent of bragging about using the same messages and pick-up lines for all.
Pandya says he likes to “observe” women dancing at clubs – a custom he owes to his affinity for West Indian culture. Little did he know that all these weird comments would land him in some serious trouble as the internet has already garnered dislike for the ‘all-rounder’.
