Gillette ends association with Hardik Pandya
Gillette, one of the famous brand has suspended its association with Indian pace bowling all-rounder Hardik Pandya following his recent controversies.
Indian players KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya are facing some serious troubles now following their comments on a TV show named Koffee with Karan.
Even though Hardik Pandya made a common apology in his social media handles regarding this issue, still he is not cleared with the issue along with his partner KL Rahul involved in the controversy.
The latest update on the issues is the suspension of both players from playing the game for India until all the inquiries and inspections are completed. The duo is returning home to attend the officials appointed by BCCI to investigate this matter. As a result, the duo will miss the entire three-match ODI series in Australia as well as the limited-overs tour of New Zealand.
With so much negative talks going about KL Rahula and Hardik Pandya, the seam bowling all-rounder has an unexpected call on him by one of his sponsors Gillette.
According to recent reports Gillette, al leading shaving blade brand has ended its association with the Indian all-rounder following the recent issues. The multinational company had roped in Pandya in October last year to launch Gillette MACH 3 Start.
“Hardik Pandya’s recent comments do not reflect the values of Gillette. We have suspended our association with Hardik until we decide on further course of action,” a Gillette India spokesperson told the news outlet.
Pandya could suffer a further blow as the other brands will take a cue from Gillette in the aftermath of the controversy. He currently endorses seven brands, including Gulf Oil, D:FY, Star India, and Sin Denims.
