Actor Shweta Tiwari, who landed in hot waters recently, due to her statement on ‘Bhagwan’ at an event has issued an apology. She released an official statement of apology amid the controversy. The actress explained why she used the statement in reference to ‘Bhagwan’ during her conversation. She said that she is a staunch believer of ‘Bhagwan’ herself. Shweta Tiwari mentioned that she would in no way intentionally or unintentionally say or do anything that would hurt sentiments by and large. Tiwari said that she “humbly” apologizes for the hurt that her statement has unintentionally caused to a lot of people.
The official Statement of apology issued By Shweta Tiwari 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.”
