A recent episode of Koffee With Karan with Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul as guests sparked immense controversy, thanks to Hardik's misogynist comments. While the BCCI banned the duo from the Australia-India series, constant debate on his low thinking has been ongoing. Karan Johar, who was witnessed to all this drama, had remained mum for quite sometime, but now, in an interview with ET Now, he has opened up on the controversy saying he had sleepless nights because of it as he thought how to undo it. 

He said,  "I have to say that I feel very responsible because it was my show, it was my platform. I invited them as guests and so the ramifications and repercussion of the show are my responsibility. I have had so many so many sleepless nights just wondering about how I can undo this damage, who is gonna listen to me. It's now gone into a zone which is beyond my control." 

He also added that while his questions are standard for all, he has no control over how the guests prefer to respond. "I have to say and I don't defend myself when I say this. I have to say that the questions that I asked the two boys are the questions I ask everyone including women. Deepika (Padukone) and Alia (Bhatt) were on the show, I asked them those questions. I have no control about the answers that come my way," he added.

He also responded to allegations of doing everything for the sake of TRP and said that he doesn't really care about it. "I am just saying is that I think that perhaps things were said that may have crossed boundaries and I apologise because it was my platform from where it happened. I feel the boys have faced the price for it already," he concluded. 

Meanwhile, following the flak, Hardik in a statement apologised for his statements. 

"Stay in sync with the latest and hottest" & "SUBSCRIBE TO PINKVILLA"

No one should apologize actually.There are people who are doing this all the time, at least Hardik had the guts to admit it. Those guys are human being and they have the right to express their views. No one should judge their professional life because of what they do in their personal space. It's their life and it's entirely their choice how they want to spend it. Give them a break guys

lies kjo you only care about your show trps

the only saving grace from this debacle is his apology sounds sincere.

Why should Karan be responsible? He asks everyone these questions. It’s Hardik who should have been careful he is not a kid he is a full grown adult for God’s sake

So what if he spent sleepless nights. Is this even an excuse. He would have slept in the day

Lol. Good one

Not even 15 days this came out. How many sleepless nights did he spent. Dramebaaz

Obviously, Pandya being an uneducated person could not even figure out that no one admits to Casanova ways, if you are a playboy, you don’t need to shout it from the rooftop and it’s nithing to be proud of either. KL was far more nuaced in his answers but pandya took him down aswell.

karan should take responsibility for damaging someone else's career. he has been taking so much credit for making people's career.

Karan is not responsible for the format of the show. How guests react is totally their responsibility. I guess these cricketers are bound to their contracts and should know where and how much to speak. Everybody is well aware for the format and questions on this show. Yes the editing team should have deleted some comments to make each party future safe and even if cricketers lack experience the people behind the show have loads of experience. Saying that these are international players and are adults and Hardik in particular should bear the consequences of his words and actions.

I guess they were so raw. Unlike other celebs they don't know how to mask their views and opinions on a public platform.

Actually its true he fire the question and the guest should act on themselves how to reply without being in controversies.

Hes right he did not put those words in their mouth and they got dropped from the series and got so much flak

No Karan it’s not your fault. Everyone should thank you for unmasking those chauvinist jerks. Now they should be banned from Indian cricket!

Although Karan Pokes his nose in every ones life, when it comes to apology,I have noticed he is sincere.

yeah we can see how disturbed you are by your instagram

This fool. Shut him up
