Speaking to TV9, He gave an open apology to the women organisations who demanded action against the actor for his comments , describing Anushka with a “hot jalebi” with “extraordinary thighs”.
He said, He made comments in lighter vein and not intentionally to criticise anyone. He also said, He hails from a decent family with two elder sister, two younger sister, wife and daughter and always has a lot of respect for women. He further said, He will keep his mouth in mute or avoid anchoring in audio launch events in future.
