My mother was really upset, asked me "how could you do this to Hardik Pandya": Karan Johar
Bollywood star filmmaker Karan Johar recently broke his silence on the on-going controversy over cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul who appeared on his popular show Koffee With Karan.
The news that took the internet by storm now seems to have settled as the Committee of Administrator that runs the Indian cricket board lifted the suspension on both the players. After listening to the latest news, Karan Johar said it was pleasing for him to know that the duo was allowed to get back to the game. He also said that he had messaged them apologizing and the two were gracious telling him that it was not his fault.
“I never thought they messed up. The episode was as per the frivolous nature of the show. I thought they were conforming to the prerequisites of the show. I didn’t think they’d get in trouble. I am feeling guilty, it was my platform, my show and they came as guests,” Karan said.
“The questions I asked them, I asked even the girls. I like these erratic, stupid questions,” Johar said, adding that he would like to get a second chance to interview a cricketer and would do his homework to ask them about their on-field moves.
He further went on to say that his mother was very upset with him over the incident and felt people were a bit too harsh on the pair. “My mother was so upset with me, she is a big Hardik Pandya fan and she was sulking and telling me ‘how could you do this to him? I said I didn’t do anything’. The one woman I offended was my own mother.”
