There have been few controversial comments on the Coffee couch over the years. However, the recent episode featuring Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul was the talk of the town for the comments made by Indian All rounder. His comment made huge buzz over social media and was criticised for his sexist comment on the show.
In the last episode of KWK telecasted on 6th January, Pandya remembers partying with his parents and his statement in which he shared that he had told his parents about the women he had had a “scene” with, “And I had to tell them. This one. This one. This one” said Hardik.

How he bragged his parents about losing his virginity and said “Ajj main karke aaya.”
He also said on the show “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.”
The episode was out on Sunday, and since then a lot of deliberation and speculation was going on.
His comment earned him criticism. Pandya issued an apology on the social network and said: “I got carried away with the nature of the show.”
