Oops! Stars make headlines for wrong reasons

When celebs took to Twitter to apologise for their words and actions

In Bollywood, if actors are misquoted or have unknowingly hurt sentiments via their actions, they are expected to apologise publicly. Well, also because they wouldn’t want to hurt their fans or society by any misconduct. Recently, Priyanka Chopra made an apology after one of the scenes on her series Quantico hurt religious sentiments.  Here is a list of celebs who have apologised publicly…

Language barrier

When Sidharth Malhotra tried to speak in a certain language on a TV show for his film promotion, it ended up becoming a laughing stock to which many people objected. So, the actor took to twitter to clarify and wrote, “I recently tried speaking a new language while I was on a TV show. In the process, if I inadvertently hurt anyone’s feelings or sentiments, I apologise and assure you that no disrespect was meant in any way.”

Patriotic touch

Akshay Kumar had apologised for a photo shared by him wherein he is seen holding the Indian flag upside down. The picture, however, had been deleted from his accounts, but Akshay apologised by tweeting, “Extending my sincerest apology for violating the code of conduct for the tricolour. Didn’t mean to offend anyone, the picture has been removed.”

Come on, Bhaijaan

Arijit Singh had posted a note on his Facebook page at late night apologising to Salman Khan. In his post, the singer had begged the star not to delete a song that he had sung for Khan’s forthcoming movie Sultan. The singer had later deleted the post.  

Action reaction

When superstar Salman Khan made a statement on feeling like a raped victim while shooting action sequences for Sultan, the trolls went all out. Well, Salman’s father Salim Khan came to his son’s rescue and tweeted, “Undoubtedly, what Salman said is wrong, the simile, example and the context. The intention was not wrong. Nevertheless, I apologise on behalf of his family, his fans and his friends. Forgiveness is to pardon the unpardonable or it is no virtue at all.”

No comic timing

There was a lot of dirty linen washed in public when the fight between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover took place. After many rounds of replies and arguments, one day Kapil Sharma got sentimental and tweeted to Sunil, “Paji @WhoSunilGrover sry if I hurt u unintentionally. U knw vry well how much I luv u.
