First Published Nov 28, 2020, 6:25 PM IST
Hardik Pandya is one of the most prominent Indian all-rounders currently, known for his lethal fast bowling and explosive hitting abilities. Meanwhile, he is also famous for his personal life, having got hitched with Bollywood actress Natasa Stankovic.
When it comes to India’s explosive batsmen among the modern ones, names like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma comes to one’s mind. However, Hardik Pandya is also one name that does sound good to many, as he is not just famous for his explosive batting abilities, but even his fearsome pace bowling.
Nonetheless, he is also famous for his off the pitch tactics, as he is married to famous Bollywood actress, Natasa Stankovic. However, he landed himself in trouble on a talk show, Koffee with Karan, after saying some statements, which many referred to as sexist, as we take a look at them.
On dealing with girls
“I have to see how they (girls) move first. I have to imagine the picture”. Not sure what he meant by that, by girls surely wouldn’t want to imagine the picture.
On losing his virginity
“With my family, I have been open about everything. When I lost my virginity, I told them, ‘Aaj karke aya’ (I did it today).”
WOW! Pretty bold, Hardik.
On his mother finding his condom
“I was just about 18, when my mother found it (condom) and she made my dad yell at me. So, obviously, my dad, in front of my mother, gave me a proper hearing and then she went to sleep. Then, he (his father) slowly came into my bedroom, he slid me the thing and said, ‘I’m very happy you are using it, like you should be safe’.”
Not sure what should we say about that.
On talking about his dates with family
“There was this party where my parents were sitting and they’re like, ‘Teri wali kaun kaun hai (Who all are yours?)’. Actually, I sat with them and I was like, ‘Yeh, yeh, wo… sabke saath kuch na kuch raha hai mera (This, this… I’ve got something with everyone)’. They said, ‘Waahh… (Wow), we are proud of you beta.’”
Again, really bold, Hardik.
On sending flirty texts to girls
Pandya’s teammate KL Rahul, who was on the show as well, said “I’ve gotten those screenshots from two different people saying, ‘Tell him to at least send us different messages.’ Pandya replies, “But why? It’s the same thing I feel for them.”
The most embarrassing thing
On being asked about the most embarrassing things he has in his wardrobe, Pandya revealed that it was a lube. Frankly, no one even wanted to know that, Hardik. Instead, you could have just skipped it all.
