The new year has started on anything but a memorable note for India cricketers KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya. While the rest of their teammates were busy celebrating India’s historic Test series win in Australia, the duo was caught up in a storm for their comments on TV talk show Koffee with Karan. And it is safe to say that the storm is showing no signs of slowing down. Ever since the episode was aired, the cricketers have been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
The two, especially Pandya, is facing heavy backlash for the comments that have condemned as ‘sexist’ and ‘misogynistic’. From fans to cricketers, almost everyone has expressed his or her displeasure over the two for the remarks. And the latest to join the anti-Pandya chorus is Priya Malik, who shot to fame after appearing on television reality show Bigg Boss. Malik has written a poem ‘Dear Mister Player’ to take a shot at Pandya and it has gone viral.
“Dear Mr Player, aaj mai kar ke aai, no not sex, but a lesson on respect, gender sensitivity and sexism, which is available to you for free to help you understand that there is nothing cool about your rampant misogyny to help you realise that being a man has nothing to do with crass behaviour, and that boys manning up are all about kindness, compassion and candour,” part of her strongly-worded poem read.
Here is the whole video:
Upset Pandya avoids interacting with others:
Affected by the recent turn of events, Pandya has confined himself in his house, according to his father Himanshu. Pandya and Rahul have been sent back home from Australia and are currently suspended pending an inquiry. Both the players are in danger of facing bans.
“He watched the match (India vs Australia 2nd ODI). Ever since he has returned from Australia, he has not stepped out of the house. He is also not taking any calls… he is just taking rest,” Hardik’s father was quoted as saying by Mid Day.
