Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui has apologised to the families of deceased Bollywood stars Sridevi and Irrfan Khan over insensitive comments by PTI leader and host Aamir Liaquat Hussain and labelling it as an ‘extremely callous’ act to joke about the deceased.
The Mere Paas Tum Ho actor turned to Instagram and shared a lengthy post while expressing his regret about being part of the show.
He wrote, “So I don’t know how to explain what I’m feeling right now or what to say. But this need to go out. I was invited on the live chat show ‘Jeeway Pakistan’ yesterday when this unfortunate incident happened.”
“The anchor Amir Liaquat joked about something extremely sensitive. Not only were they both close to me but also as a human it was wrong on so many levels. I cannot even call it ‘hitting below the belt’.”
‘It was an extremely callous act to joke about the deceased. This is in very bad taste, not only does it show him and me but also the entire country in a bad light’
“It was an extremely callous act to joke about the deceased. This is in very bad taste, not only does it show him and me but also the entire country in a bad light.”
“I want to apologize to the families of Sridevi Sahiba and Irrfan Khan Sahab and their loved ones,” he said.
“If you see my boy language I was extremely uncomfortable with what he said but I didn’t want to stoop to that level. I regret being on the show.”
He further said “I’ve learned a lesson and I promise I will not tolerate such act in future. I was hoping this bit wouldn’t become public but unfortunately, it has.”
