It must be noted here that his colleague and partner on the show KL Rahul exercised greater restraint while answering Johar's questions on women and relationships.

His statements were deemed as "crass and cringeworthy" prompting the BCCI to think about barring cricketers from appearing on "such non-cricket shows", a source said. "The CEO may join them in the sensitisation as well as recommended by Ms. Veena Gowda, Advocate".
