Singing sensation Neha Kakkar had slammed comedians Gaurav Gera and Kiku Sharda for making fun of her height. Both the comedians in their recent act in ‘Dr. Pran Lele’ had cracked jokes on Neha’s height and singing talent. Obviously the act didn’t go down well with the singer and criticised both Kiku, Gaurav and the channel on which their act was aired. Neha said that she was really disgusted and shamed with the manner they made fun of her.

Gaurav Gera has now offered his apology and said that he has always found Neha inspiring and is in love with her songs.

In an interview with Times of India, Gaurav talking about the whole incident said that Neha has not directly blamed him or Kiku and even the Channel has pulled down the video.

Presenting his point of views, Gera told the daily, “I have always tried to stay away from controversy. I have tried my best to even stay away from shows on TV. Even during the shoot, we kept saying where we felt it is going overboard. We tried our best, but whatever they felt should go they aired and rest they edited out. You have seen what I do when it comes to comedy. I thought they (Channel and Production house) work on so many comedy shows on the small screen they must be aware of the sensibilities. They know what runs and also they had an equation with Neha so they should have known where to stop. But I would like to apologise to her and I love her. She is fantastic.”

We wonder if Neha will accept Gaurav’s apology.
