Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya on Wednesday apologised following intense criticism for his 'sexist' and 'misogynist' remarks when he appeared on a popular celebrity chat show on Sunday. 

The 25-year-old tweeted that he 'did not mean to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments' and simply got a bit carried away by the nature of the show. 

"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," wrote Pandya. 

However, fans were not in the mood to forgive him for his controversial remarks and brutally mocked the all-rounder despite an apology. 

Pandya was recently a part of the Indian squad for the historic 2-1 Test series triumph against Australia. However, the all-rounder did not get an opportunity to feature in the matchday lineups for any of the matches.
