India cricketer Hardik Pandya on January 9 apologised after being slammed for making what many construed as misogynistic and sexist remarks on talk show Koffee With Karan hosted by film maker Karan Johar.

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are now with the Indian team in Australia where a historic maiden Test series win was recently recorded. In the whole episode, he could not stop himself from boasting about womanizing and that did not go down well with the netizens.

Pandya took to his official instagram account to issue apology, "After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way".

Responding to the show cause notice, Pandya said that while on the chat show he did not realise his comments could be disrespectful and offend sensitivities of viewers. But the response has not gone down well with CoA chief Vinod Rai.

On the other hand, Rahul, who was quite restrained during his appearance on the show, is yet to respond to CoA's notice.

Pandya and Rahul were asked a number of questions about their personal life on the chat show. On the show, Pandya narrated an incident where he was out partying with his parents and revealed that he had told his parents about the women he had a "scene" with. "Respect", Pandya wrote on his Twitter page. The two cricketers have fallen into trouble over the controversial remarks.

"It will be considered whether players should even be allowed to appear on such shows which have got nothing to do with cricket", a BCCI source told PTI.

Pandya was asked about how he approached women in nightclubs, to which he replied: "You are just watching and observing how they move. I am little from the black side, so I need to see how they move".

Pandya is now with the Indian team in Australia and his response, released to a section of the media in Sydney, spoke of regrets.

But Pandya interrupted and said, "Nahi nahi aisa kuch nahi hai, talent pe hota hai".

Pandya returned to the national squad after he suffered injury in a match between India and Pakistan in Asia Cup held in October previous year.

India are scheduled to start a three-match ODI series against Australia from Saturday.
