Shweta Tiwari issues statement on 'Bhagwan' controversy
A complaint was filed against Shweta Tiwari for the statement she made on 'Bhagwan'. After the video of her from the event went viral on the internet, it stirred up a controversy. Many did not appreciate the actor's statement. Earlier in the day, Shweta Tiwari issued a statement of apology. The statement reads: "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 media. However, it has been completely misconstrued which is saddening to see. As someone who has been a staunch believer of ‘Bhagwan’ myself, there is no way that I would intentionally or unintentionally say or do any such thing that would hurt sentiments by and large. 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 the statement has unintentionally caused to a lot of people.”

Do they have the same feelings for the babies like the mothers who give birth to the babies?" However, although her tweets did not mention the names of the celebrity couple, it came after Priyanka's announcement about welcoming a baby via surrogate.
