Hardik Pandya Spotted First Time After Koffee With Karan Controversy
India allrounder Hardik Pandya was finally spotted in public since returning to India midway through the tour of Australia. The BCCI has suspended Pandya and KL Rahul pending an inquiry for their controversial comments on television show Koffee with Karan. Both the players faced heavy backlash for the comments that have been condemned as ‘sexist’, ‘racist’ and ‘misogynistic’.
Both players missed the three-ODI series against Australia, which India won on Friday night, and are also set to miss out on the limited-overs series in New Zealand later this month.
Recently, his father said that Pandya was not taking calls and avoiding leaving the house since returning home.
Hardik’s father had earlier stated that his son is keeping a low profile and not leaving the house and has even stopped taking calls after returning to India. Himanshu, Hardik’s father, also said that his son was very disappointed with the comments that he made on the show before saying that the family has not brought the topic up at home.
“We have decided not to talk to him on this subject. Even his elder brother Krunal has not discussed anything about the episode with him. We are waiting for the BCCI’s decision,” Pandya senior had said.
Well, Pandya was finally seen in public on Saturday. He was seen along with his elder brother Krunal at the Mumbai airport. Seemingly upset with the recent turn of events, Pandya avoided contact with the journalists as he made his way into the airport.
Meanwhile, Pandya and Rahul will have to wait a bit longer to learn their fate as the Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned the case related to the BCCI till next week. The court was set to give its verdict on several cases with fate of the under-fire duo being one of them. The apex court has now stated it would proceed with the case only after the appointment of an amicus curiae to replace Gopal Subramanium.
