Think before opening your mouth. Recently, no one understood that better than Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya. Yes, I am talking about the Koffee With Karan controversy. For all the non-gossip lovers out there, let us refresh your memory. When Hardik Pandya went on KJo’s show with K.L. Rahul, he made some sexist comments that didn’t sit well with the viewers. Soon controversy sparked and eventually BCCI suspended the players from playing few matches.
After serving the suspension, Hardik Pandya is back on the team to play against New Zealand. Though some were questioning his return, the cricketer soon proved his worth by taking an awesome catch.
Pandya went flying to eliminate dangerous Williamson from the game. The moment at which the catch was taken is absolutely surprising. The only word that came in mind after seeing the sensational catch was – WOW! Check out for yourself:

Not only that but one of the users came up with an absolutely valid point! The user compared Hardik Pandya’s catch with that of Lakha from Lagaan. Yes, the character played by Yashpal Sharma who was initially a villain but then turned out to be a good guy. This is the post:
