Actor Siddharth’s comments on badminton champion Saina Nehwal have sparked outrage. Responding to Siddhartha’s remarks, women’s groups and cine politicians have come out in support of Saina. Siddhartha, however, reacted once again as the controversy escalated. He publicly apologized to Nehwal. Wrote a letter to this effect.
“I apologize for the rude joke I made via tweet. I mean there was nothing wrong with that but some people misrepresented it and criticized it. Women have a lot of respect for themselves. There are no gender issues in my tweet. My apologies Saina”, he also said that “you will always be my champion”.
This all started when Saina Nehwal tweeted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not safe and what would happen to the country in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s obstruction of his visit to Punjab. Responding to the tweet, Siddhartha tweeted that he takes pride in Saina Nehwal being the co*k champion of the world.
