Actor Siddharth has now apologized to badminton star player Saina Nehwal after his controversial comment. Siddharth has apologized to Saina Nehwal by sharing a long letter on social media. He has also said in the letter that Saina will always be the champion for him.
Siddharth wrote in the post, ‘Dear Saina, I want to apologize to you for your rude joke as a reply to one of your tweets a few days ago. I may disagree with you on many things, but not even my frustration or anger can justify my tone and words when I read your tweet. I know that there is more grace in me than this. As far as the joke is concerned… if a joke needs to be explained, it may not be a good joke. I apologize to you for my joke, which people did not understand properly.”
The actor further wrote in the post, “However, let me emphasize my word play and humour. I didn’t have any bad intentions with my joke, for which so many people from all walks of life have blamed me for it. I am one staunch feminist ally and I can assure you that there was no gender implied in my tweet and certainly no intention to attack you as a woman. I hope we can get past this and you Will accept this letter of mine. You will always be my champion.”
