In last week’s Koffee With Karan 6 episode, guests Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul ruffled some feathers when they made controversial remarks on their dating life. Their fans got particularly offended by their sexist remarks about the women they have dated in their life. While the cricketers are facing the heat of that episode to this day, an old video of Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma from Koffee With Karan is doing rounds on the social media. The netizens immediately jumped into the whataboutery mode, questioning the industry on their double standards.

In this old video which probably is from Band Baaja Baraat time, Ranveer Singh is heard talking about his teenage crush on Kareena Kapoor with Karan Johar. He narrated an old incident when Ranveer used to watch Bebo swim at Otter’s Club. During one of his such remarks, Anushka Sharma even gave him a good beating, though in a joking manner. Twitterati are calling Ranveer Singh ‘sexist’ after the video went viral on the internet.

Netizens have slammed Ranveer for making such offensive statements about the actresses. A few days ago, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya created controversy after their appeared on the show and made some comments about women. They issued an apology on the social media while the episode has been pulled down by Star World from all the streaming platforms.
It's sad that Just Bcoz he has some hit films now (courtesy of bhansali).... Suddenly this loud and unsophisticated person has turned into the new apple of the eye for everyone..... It's unfortunate that the bar has been set so low for stars and cricketers (cough" pandya" cough)— Gloria Guha (@GloriaGuha) January 11, 2019
On the work front, Ranveer Singh will be next seen in Gully Boy opposite Alia Bhatt. The film directed by Zoya Akhtar is based on the life of street rapper Divine and Naezy who grew up in Mumbai slum and now are touted to be the best rappers of the country.
