‘This is Not the Person I Once Knew’ – Elli Avram on Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have been facing flak for their sexist remarks on Karan Johar’s chat show. Elli Avram, Hardik’s ex-girlfriend has responded to the matter recently. The Bollywood actress said this is not the Hardik she had known. Also, she said the amount of criticism they have faced is fair, as such kind of mentality is not cool and there is nothing to brag in it.
Avram opens up about Hardik’s behaviour
The social media shared utter disappointment on what unfolded at Koffee with Karan. As a result, the BCCI and the CoA have suspended the pair pending inquiry. Not only this, but they also got released from the Australia ODIs and the New Zealand tour as well.
Elli Avram, who in the past had shared a relationship with the star India National Cricket Team all-rounder; said the incident is all but sad. At an award ceremony, Elli said she didn’t know what had happened until she arrived in India lately. After going through some footages, she said,
“I just came back to India and I have been getting messages from journalists who have been asking me questions regarding this and I had no idea what they were talking about. But then I have seen certain footage and I just think it’s very sad.
“I got a little bit surprised because that’s not really the Hardik Pandya I personally once used to know! I think it’s great that people are reacting and putting their foot down on this kind of behaviour because it’s about time we all realize that this kind of mentality is not cool. Neither is it something to brag about.”
They should not cross a line – Elli Avram
Elli Avram also talked about the suspension imposed on both the players. She told both Hardik Pandya, and KL Rahul are representing India; they cannot cross such a line knowing there is a generation looking upto them.
“On terms of what is happening from what I read, they are getting suspended right? I mean I just feel when you get an opportunity to represent your country, it’s a really big privilege to get that and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. I believe because by the end of the day the youth that is our next generation are actually they are watching and learning from their idols. So… that’s all I have to say on this.”
Esha Gupta denies knowing Hardik Pandya
Another Bollywood celebrity, Esha Gupta, who was also rumoured to be dating Hardik Pandya denied any such connection with him.
“Firstly, women should not compare themselves with men. We are the best in every respect. I don’t want anyone to feel bad, but why don’t you give birth to a child? We suffer from periods five days every month and even then we have to dance, go to an office, and take care of the children. When you can do all this, you become superior, adding, I do not think anyone should talk bad about any woman, if you think your family is not worried about it, then be it, but it is wrong in Humanity.”
