HIGHLIGHTS
 
*Hardik Pandya came on the show with teammate and good friend KL Rahul
*It was the first time Karan Johar had hosted cricketers on his popular celebrity chat show
*Pandya and Rahul are currently gearing up for the ODI series in Australia which will begin from January 12
 
India all-rounder Hardik Pandya is in the eye of the storm after his appearance on the popular show Koffee with Karan on Sunday. Pandya was subjected to social media backlash after he made "misogynistic" and "sexist" remarks on Karan Johar's celebrity chat show.
 
Hardik Pandya came on the show with teammate and good friend KL Rahul as Karan Johar hosted cricketers on the show for the first time in its six-year history.
 
But it was Pandya's comments which drew a lot of criticism on social media after he boasted about things like not asking the names of women at parties, sending the same text to multiple women and watching them move on the dance among others.
 
Pandya later took to social media to apologise for his comments and said that he "got a bit carried away" on the show.
 
"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," Pandya posted on Twitter.
 
On the show, Hardik Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and even spoke about how open he is with his parents. Hardik Pandya revealed that he even informed his parents that he lost his virginity by telling them, "Aaj mai kar ke aaya."
 
"When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, 'Main karke aya hai aaj (I had sex today)'. At a party my parents asked me 'acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai [who is your interest here?] so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women)' and they were like 'waah proud of you beta'," Pandya boasted.
 

 

The 25-year-old also said things like, "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," when Karan Johar asked him why he doesn't ask women for their names in nightclubs.

Rahul then went on to reveal how they both decide on who gets to date a girl when Karan Johar asked them what happens when both of them like a particular person? "Upto the woman," Rahul replied.
 
But Pandya interrupted and said, "Nahi nahi aisa kuch nahi hai, talent pe hota hai. Jisko mila woh leke jao. It is on talent."
 

Pandya is currently with the Indian team in Australia where they just registered a historic Test series win, the first in India's Test history Down Under.
 
Hardik Pandya had joined the team before the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne after recovering from the long-standing back injury which he had suffered during the Asia Cup in UAE last year.H
 
He didn't get to play any Tests but was a part of the Test squad which retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after winning the series 2-1, courtesy the victories in the Adelaide and Melbourne Tests.
 
India lost the second Test in Perth while the fourth match ended in a draw due to the poor weather conditions in Sydney which prevented India from pushing for victory in the final Test.
 
Hardik Pandya is now gearing up for the three-match ODI series against Australia which starts in January 12 in Sydney. The focus will then shift to New Zealand where India will play a series of 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is from January 23.
