Koffee With Karan attracts controversies but this time, things have gone a bit too far and Karan Johar himself along with guests Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul bear the brunt of it.
After inappropriate comments that both cricketers made on the couch this season, it got them suspended by BCCI and now there seems to be legal trouble for the trio.
According to a report by a leading news agency, ANI, a case has been registered in Rajasthan against the film-maker as well as the sensational cricketers for their comments which offended the viewers.
Several celebrities including Virat Kohli and Harbhajan Singh proceeded to condemn the act.
In the episode which was shown in December last year, Hardik made statements about women, including how he makes his first move in a club and how there are days when he comes home and tells his parents that he’s ‘done it’.
The rage of it reached a level that even Hotstar had to remove the episode from their platform.
BCCI had earlier suspended the cricketers from the Australia ODI series and one New Zealand ODI. However, the ban was lifted after two weeks and they resumed to play.
Moreover, KJo who expressed guilt in media interviews for whatever happened has now been roped in the legal trouble.
Many blamed him for airing the episode, to which he clarified in a conversation with ET Now saying:
“The show Koffee With Karan is entirely run by a woman, I’m the only man there. None of them came up.
Some thought he was wild, he was crazy, he’s crack, he’s mad. They said he’s funny. No one came and told me it was inappropriate, maybe you should reflect on it.”
Given that the two cricketers budding ace-players who represent the country on an international level, one expected a level of respect and maturity, rather than a display of laddish behaviour.
One waits to see what happens next.
