Mumbai-based Khar Gymkhana has revoked all-rounder Hardik Pandya‘s honorary membership of the club for his sexist comments on the Koffee With Karan Show.

The cricketer, along with opener KL Rahul, was earlier suspended pending inquiry by the BCCI for making sexist comments on a television show. He has since also been suspended by the shaving product brands MACH 3 Start.

“The three-year honorary membership was given to Hardik Pandya in October 2018. But the club’s Managing Committee Monday evening decided to revoke the membership,” Khar Gymkhana’s honorary general-secretary Gaurav Kapadia said.

Kapadia informed that such honorary memberships were given to sports persons by the club. Another club official said the committee took up the issue following the backlash over the comments.

Khar Gymkhana is one of the better known clubs in Mumbai. A BCCI official had Monday said the two suspended cricketers had tendered apologies.

Pandya and Rahul, during an appearance on the Koffee with Karan show, spoke about hook-ups with multiple women and being casual about it even with their parents.
