Pandya has already lost a sponsor in the form of Gillete Mach 3 Start, according to a report on The Times of India. A tweet by Hotstar read, "Certain remarks / comments made by the guests on the episode 12 of Koffee with Karan may hurt the sentiments of our users / viewers". While KL Rahul does not seem to have made such statements himself on the episode, he did not counter Hardik either. However, they also made the move of bringing in wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik in place of all-rounder Kedar Jadhav.
The comments triggered social media outrage, and prompted Pandya to release a statement apologising for his behaviour, saying he got "carried away by the nature of the show". "You are looking at women in only one angle and that is not right", Harbhajan, who took more than 400 Test wickets while representing the national team, told India Today.
Pandya spoke about "hook ups" with several women and said he liked to observe women at bars or night clubs.
Referring to the exoneration of Board of Control for Cricket in India CEO Rahul Johri in a sexual harassment case, the old guard accused the current dispensation of "double standards" in dealing with cases related to players, PTI reported.

On Thursday, Vinod Rai, Chairman of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had recommended a two-ODI ban on the duo but fellow member Diana Edulji had pushed for a legal opinion before deciding on the quantum of punishment.
Pandya has since reportedly also apologised to head coach Ravi Shastri, and former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
"We must take a view by the time second ODI gets over as we can not afford to debilitate team strength due to delinquent behaviour on the part of some player", Rai had written.
Kohli added that the two players "have understood the magnitude of what's happened".
