Mumbai: Following a huge controversy over her ‘bra’ statement, TV actress Shweta Tiwari issued an apology on Friday after a First Information Report was lodged in Bhopal.
The 41-year-old actress made the controversial statement about her brassiere while referring to God during a press briefing in Bhopal on Wednesday. She received backlash for allegedly hurting religious sentiments with her ‘God’ remark.
The Kasautii Zindagii Kay star said via a statement that her remark was taken out of context and ‘misconstrued’. According to her, she would never intentionally or unintentionally say or do anything that would hurt sentiments of people at large.
“It has come to my notice that a certain statement of mine referring to a colleague’s previous role has been taken out of context and has been misconstrued. When put in context, one will understand that the statement in reference to ‘Bhagwan’ was in context with Sourabh Raj Jain’s popular role of a deity.
“People associate character names to actors and hence, I used that as an example during my conversation with the media. However, it has been completely misconstrued which is saddening to see. I have, however, come to understand that when taken out of context, it has unintentionally hurt feelings of people. Please be assured that it has never been my intention to hurt anyone, with my words or actions. Hence, I would like to humbly apologise for the hurt that my statement has unintentionally caused to a lot of people,” read her statement.
