It seems the ghost of Koffee With Karan Season 6 is not leaving Hardik Pandya anytime soon. In a picture that is going viral on social media which is claimed to be from the second T20 international between India and New Zealand on February 8, Friday, a girl is seen holding a banner with the message, "Pandya Aaj Kar Ke Aaya Kya." Case Registered Against Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul Post Passing Misogynist Comments on KWK 6.
For the uninitiated, the comment on the banner is related to what Pandya said during the Koffee With Karan talk show where Hardik Pandya appeared along with KL Rahul. Pandya's comments during the show had come under huge criticism and the players also faced suspension. Hardik Pandya’s Father Comes to His Defence Following Koffee With Karan 6 Controversy.
India registered a comprehensive seven-wicket victory over New Zealand in the second Twenty20 International (T20I) on Friday. India skipper Rohit Sharma asserted that his team learned from the defeat in the series opener which helped them to produce a much better performance. India restricted New Zealand to 158/8 before overhauling the target with more than an over to spare. However, Hardik Pandya had a forgetful match as he conceded 36 runs in four overs without any wickets and then this incident happened which is gaining attention now.

After the BCCI lifted the ban on the duo, fresh troubles emerged for the duo as a case was registered in Jodhpur on their name for the misogynist comments passed by KL Rahul and Pandya during the talk show which was hosted by Karan Johar. The comments by the duo had come under the scanner and had received severe backlash. Both KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya who were in Australia back then had been called back from the tour and they were dropped from the series to New Zealand as well. Vijay Shankar and Shubman Gill were named as their replacements. However, the two issued an unconditional apology and it was only recently that their ban was lifted.
