After making some controversial and sexist statements on Koffee with Karan, Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul faced a lot of public flak, that also resulted in them being suspended from the cricket team for a brief period of time. The suspension was later lifted owing to a pending inquiry by the Ombudsman appointed by the Supreme Court. Hardik had earlier apologized for his misogynistic comments on Twitter, but, of course, it fell on deaf ears.

Anyway, now the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took a serious step by slapping both the cricketers with a fine of Rs. 20 lakh each. The two players have been strictly instructed by the BCCI Ombudsman D K Jain to pay Rs. 1 lakh to each of the 10 families of the jawans who lost their lives serving the country. Apart from this, D K Jain has also ordered the cricketers to deposit Rs. 10 lakh each in the fund created by the Cricket Association for the blind. All payments are to be made within four weeks from the date of the order, i.e. April 19, 2019.

Post the incident, KWK host Karan Johar did appear on multiple platforms, saying that two have already paid their price and that he somehow feels responsible for the controversy. But, clearly, that wasn’t priced enough and this new step by the BCCI would hopefully set an example for one and all. Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more such updates.

Recently, Rajkumar Rao starrer Judgemental Hai Kya promotions took an ugly turn when the actress of the movie bashed a journalist at an event. Since then, it has become difficult for other co-stars and filmmakers to keep up with the media.  However, denying the actor’s support to such events, a source close to Rajkummar has issued a clarification.

Revealing that Raj has never supported or endorsed such actions, the source said in the statement that Rajkumar’s stand on the controversy was misquoted and misunderstood. “Rajkummar was never asked any question related to the press conference at the song launch of Judgemental Hai Kya. He answered an entirely different question, which was attributed as a response to another. He (Rajkummar) has always respected the media fraternity and has never had any issue with anyone whatsoever. In fact during the incident, Rajkummar even went up on the stage and tried to calm the situation down since he has always shared a warm equation with the media. He is a thorough professional and very sensible and prefers his work to do all the talking. So, there is no question of him giving an answer to a question which was never asked. It’s shocking that this has been misconstrued,” the statement read.

We hope that the controversy doesn’t affect the actor due to his co-star and the film releases without any further problems. Yesterday (July 10) even Balaji Telefilms, owned by Ekta Kapoor released an apology letter for the journalists. The film has been slated to release on July 26 this year.
