Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s recent interview about his Ravan’s character in the upcoming film Adipurush has put the actor into trouble. Even though Saif apologised for hurting people’s sentiments, a case has been filed against the actor in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) in Jaunpur district of Uttar Pradesh.
Actor received backlash for his remark and many Twitter users began trending the hashtag ‘Boycott Adipurush.’ Recently, a civil court advocate, Himanshu Sharma, filed an application via advocate Upendra Vikram Singh under Section 156 (3).
After receiving backlash, actor apologised in a public statement. He said, “I’ve been made aware that one of my statements during an interview, has caused controversy and hurt people’s sentiments. This was never my intention or meant that way. I would like to sincerely apologise to everybody and withdraw my statement. Lord Ram has always been the symbol of Righteousness & Heroism for me. Adipurush is about celebrating the victory of good over evil and the entire team is working together to present the epic without any distortions.”
