Earlier today, BollywoodLife wrote a piece about Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya for his unacceptable behaviour on Karan Johar’s popular chat show. We waited for Pandya to realise his mistake before joining the bandwagon of ‘We Dislike Hardik Pandya’. The cricketer finally issued an apology for his behaviour and stated that he got carried away on the show. However, it seems his apology was not enough. According to the latest reports, BCCI is likely to take initiate action against Hardik. Apparently, the officials are currently watching the episode to figure out the appropriate punishment for him. Pandya was under the radar for his attitude towards women as he passed some really frivolous statements on the show.
Hindustan Times quoted a senior BCCI official as saying, “This attempt at an apology does in no way bring the issue to closure. This merely shows how lightly he takes the gravely serious issue of respecting women. His conduct was unacceptable. He needs to understand the impact the utterances of an international cricketer have in this country but more importantly, he needs to learn how to differentiate between the right and the wrong. Right now he seems to merely respond to the outrage and not to his own thought process and conduct.”
