Hardik Pandya Opens Up about His Controversial ‘Koffee with Karan’ Episode

Indian Cricketer Dinesh Karthik, who is also the Captain of IPL team Kolkata Night Riders, recently indulged in an Instagram Live session with Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal Pandya. From discussing the impact of coronavirus to the postponement of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the trio had a great chat talking about various topics.

While their chat session was still on, Hardik Pandya decided to speak up about his controversial ‘Koffee With Karan’ episode that ruined his public image and also affected his flourishing career which further led to a suspension from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

To keep situation under control and from preventing things from going out of hands, Dinesh Karthik requested the fans not to ask any controversial questions because it had been a year since Hardik’s appearance on the show.

Clearing his stance, Hardik, who is an all-rounder when it comes to cricket, said that he was never a coffee drinker and the one he had proved to be too costly for him. He also sarcastically gave a name to KJo’s coffee, ‘highly expensive’ and that if we put together all the coffees sold by Starbucks, it will still not match up to Koffee With Karan’s coffee.

“One coffee I had, mere ko bahut mehengi padi vo (proved to be too costly for me),” Hardik said.“If you calculate all the coffee starbucks have sold till now, mine was much costlier than that,” Hardik added.

Further, the trio spoke about IPL 2020 getting postponed, Krunal Pandya said that the cash-rich league should go ahead but Karthik, who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL, took a cheeky dig at the Pandya brothers for their answer.

“After the BCCI, the biggest loss for a couple is for you only, if the IPL doesn’t happen. There is not one single family who will suffer as much as the Pandyas,” Dinesh Karthik said.

The BCCI had postponed the 13th edition of the IPL indefinitely on April 16 after the nationwide lockdown was extended by the Indian government till May 3.
