Any help will be appreciated.

Answer

As said here Issue #170849 reasons for the above crash

  1. This happens (at least) when no sdk is installed and no remote repos that contain platforms are available.
  2. Actually it happens whenever remote sites aren't available and the first run wizard is run.

Found a temporary solution from Issue #170850

Add the following code to C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\bin\idea.properties

disable.android.first.run=true


UPDATED

The issue has been fixed Fix Issue #170849

Happy_Coding... :)
