Pandya had recently attended the show along with his India teammate KL Rahul and made quite a number of eye-popping comments. In the whole episode, he could not stop himself from boasting about womanizing and that did not go down well with the netizens.
After a furore on social media, Pandya took to Twitter to offer an apology in the morning.
Rahul, the more restrained of the two on the show hosted by film maker Karan Johar, has not yet issued a statement following the social media storm. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. Karan asked some very personal questions, while Pandya did not hesitate to answer any of those, he raised many eyebrows with them. 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.
The Indian all-rounder had earlier taken to Twitter to apologise for his comments, mentioning that he got "carried away nature of the show". Immediately, Pandya expressed "regrets" for his remarks, deemed disrespectable of women, and sent back his reply. "Exhausted of this boys will be boys attitude", Ekta Chauhan, a Twitter user, wrote.
When asked why he wouldn't ask women's names at a club, he said that he likes to 'watch and observe how they move'.
A BCCI source also reported that the officials were contemplating barring the players to participate in shows that have got nothing to do with cricket, henceforth.
"You are just watching and observing how they move as I said I am a little from the black side (influenced by West Indies culture) so I have to see how they (women) move first", he said.
"In the past also, BCCI has handed bans to players for their indiscretions", sources close to the CoA informed CricketNext. "I made these statements in the flow of the show and had not comprehended the extent to which my statements would be found offensive", Pandya had said in his response.
Pandya had joined the team before the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne after recovering from a back injury which he had suffered during the Asia Cup in UAE a year ago. He is now gearing up for the three-match ODI series which starts on January 12.
