The Committee of Administrators Wednesday issued a show cause notice to Indian cricketers, Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul, and sought an explanation within 24 hours for their remarks on women on a TV show.
The show cause came hours after Pandya apologised for making remarks that were construed as misogynist and sexist on celebrity chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’, saying he got “carried away by the nature” of the show.
“We have sent show cause notices to Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul for their comments. They have given 24 hours to give an explanation,” CoA chief Vinod Rai told PTI.
Pandya appeared on the show, hosted by film maker Karan Johar, with his India teammate K L Rahul.
Earlier, taking to Twitter, Pandya posted, “After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way.
“Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone’s sentiments. Respect.”
On the show, Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and spoke about how open he is with his parents.
When the host of the show asked him why didn’t he ask women their name in a club, Pandya responded by saying, “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.”
A barrage of criticism started coming Pandya’s way soon after.
