New Delhi: Team India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya is currently a big name in the world of cricket. Everyone has an idea of how Hardik Pandya can turn the dice of the match when he has his time. But let us tell you that Hardik has also been caught in big controversies many times.
There was a ruckus in Koffee with Karan
A few years ago today, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul went to director Karan Johar’s show Koffee with Karan. At that time, Hardik Pandya had given many controversial statements, after which he was heavily criticized. Even Hardik and Rahul were banned for some matches by the BCCI. After that controversy, Hardik’s name had cropped up the most.
This tweet going viral
A tweet of the same controversy that happened with Hardik Pandya in Koffee with Karan is now becoming fiercely viral on social media. Comedian and actor Rahman Khan has tweeted that if Rahul Dravid was the coach of the team, Karan Johar would never have dared to invite Hardik Pandya to his show. He said in a tweet, ‘Rahul Dravid is the coach of the team on the tour of Sri Lanka. For Hardik Pandya, the transition from Ravi Shastri to Rahul Dravid is very difficult. If Rahul Dravid was India’s coach at that time, Karan Johar would never have dared to invite Hardik to the Koffee with Karan show.
