Indian cricketer is currently in the news for all the wrong reasons for his recent comments about women along with KL Rahul on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan 6.
The cricketer also banned from playing India vs Australia ODI series. After returning home, Pandya has stayed home and has stopped taking calls.
According to a report in Mid-day, the cricketer did not celebrate Makar Sankranti yesterday. Hardik was sitting at his Baroda residence and was watching India beat Australia in the second ODI at the Adelaide Oval.
Hardik Pandya has stopped going out
His father Himanshu Pandya told the leading tabloid, “He watched the match. Ever since he has returned from Australia, he has not stepped out of the house. He is also not taking any calls… he is just taking rest.”
He further added, “It’s a festival… a public holiday in Gujarat, but Hardik did not fly any kites. He loves flying kites but his busy cricketing schedule never allowed him to be at home during this festival over the last few years. This time, he had a chance to fly kites, but because of the adverse situation, there was no mood to celebrate the festival.”
“He is very disappointed with the suspension and repents the views he expressed on the TV show. He is committed not to repeat the same mistake,” Pandya Sr remarked. “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.” he concluded.
Pandya has been facing a severe backlash among the fans for his comments on Koffee with Karan. He boasted about hooking up with several women and how he is extremely open about it with his parents. When he was asked by Karan Johar on why didn’t he ask women their name in a club, Pandya said that “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.
