Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya issued an apology on Wednesday after his appearance on the latest episode of Koffee With Karan drew criticism from every quarter for his 'misogynist', 'sexist', and 'racist' remarks.

Taking to Twitter, Pandya admitted that he 'got a bit carried away with the nature of the show' and he meant no disrespect to anyone.

"After reflecting on my comments on Koffee with Karan, I would like to apologise to everyone concerned who I may have hurt in any way. Honestly, I got a bit carried away with the nature of the show. In no way did I mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments. Respect," Pandya wrote on his Twitter page.

His apology comes days after the episode featuring him and KL Rahul on the popular celebrity talk show hosted by Karan Johar caught everyone's attention after Pandya passed some outrageous comments about women and his sexual activities on the national television.

Sample this.

Karan Johar: "Why don't you ask women their name in a club? What do you talk about, then?"

Hardik Pandya: "I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I'm little from the black side so I need to see how they move."

On the show, Pandya also 'boasted' about his 'scene' with women and how he casually discussed his sex life with his parents.

As soon as the episode was aired, Twitterati called the Indian all-rounder out for his 'misogynistic' and 'creepy' approach towards women.

Meanwhile, Pandya's apology has attracted mixed responses from Twitterati.
