MUMBAI: The controversial remarks made by cricketer Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have cost them a lot. While BCCI has suspended the duo from playing any form of cricket until final adjudication of the matter, the brands associated with them have also started reviewing their associations.

Gillette India has already suspended its association with Hardik Pandya, who was appointed as the brand ambassador for men’s shaving razor Gillette Mach3 just a few months back. In an official statement, a Gillette spokesperson stated, “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.”

As per certain other media reports, other brands associated with the cricketers are also in the process of reviewing their terms. While Hardik Pandya endorses brands such as Gillette and D:FY, Puma’s sportswear brand, KL Rahul is associated with names like Puma and Curefit.

Meanwhile, online streaming platform Hotstar has taken down the controversial episode from its site.
