Mumbai. Actor Siddharth has been surrounded by controversies for the last many days. Recently, she made objectionable remarks on badminton star Saina Nehwal, after which she was taken cognizance of by the Women’s Commission. On these allegations, Siddharth had said that, there was nothing objectionable in his tweet, but now Siddharth has apologized to Saina for his remarks.
In fact, the actor had retweeted a post by Nehwal on January 6, in which he expressed concern over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security lapse during his visit to Punjab on January 5. At the same time, Siddharth has written in his open letter that, ‘Dear Saina’ I apologize to you for the joke I wrote in response to your tweet a few days ago.
I may disagree with you on many things but when I read your tweet, even my frustration or anger cannot justify my tone and words. I know I have more grace than this. And as far as the joke is concerned…if a joke needs to be explained, it was not a good joke in the beginning. I’m sorry for this joke, which I couldn’t explain properly.
However, I must emphasize my word play and humor which was not so malicious intent that so many people of all walks of life have attributed it. I am a staunch feminist ally and I can assure you that there was no gender implied in my tweets and I certainly had no intention of attacking you as a woman. I hope we can leave this behind us and you will accept my letter. You will always be my champion. Really, Siddhartha. Let us tell you that Siddharth is a well-known face of cinema. He played an important role in the Hindi film ‘Rang De Basanti’. The actor has worked in many Hindi and South films.
