KL Rahul likely to escape the ban in Koffee with Karan controversy

Koffee with Karan's episode featuring Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul has been taken down by Hotstar

Since the show was aired on January 6, a lot has gone down and here's all you need to know regarding the entire fiasco. "Respect." Pandya had sparked a controversy when he revealed on the sets of the show that he had relationships with multiple women. The recent episode became quite the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons, so much so that the comments made by Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul even resulted in strict action being taken against them by BCCL. Rahul has not yet reacted to the social media storm. He added, "Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

The firm said the behaviour in question was neither a criticism of any match or against a player or support staff or match official.

When Karan Johar asked about the most embarrassing thing in a locker room, Pandya once again said, "I like to spank, bando ko dhappad karke dene ka, unko lagta hoga mere liye normal hai", which was rather assumed to be sexual harassment.

"I made an appearance on the chat show where I have made certain statements without realising that these could be disrespectful and offend sensitivities of viewers for which I am sincerely regretful", stated Pandya's response, as quoted by PTI.

And now the recent update on that front is that, Hardik Pandya may have to face two match ban wherein he wouldn't be allowed to perform for two of them. She had earlier advocated for the ban as well but she surprisingly sought for a legal advice on the matter which has kept the Indian team also waiting ahead of the first ODI against Australia. He said that CoA should not hesitate in banning Pandya and Rahul from the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) if they are found guilty of breaching BCCI's contract regulations.

However, he clearly mentioned that this incident does not affect the dressing room camaraderie.
