Dear Saina: Siddharth apologies to Saina Nehwal for ‘rude joke’

Actor Siddharth has apologized to badminton player Sania Nehwal for his rude joke on the celebrated player on Twitter. Siddharth took to Twitter to share a lengthy note to apologise to Saina Nehwal.

“Dear Saina, I want to apologise to you for my rude joke that I wrote as a response to a tweet of yours, a few days ago. I may disagree with you on many things but even my disappointment or anger when I read your tweet, cannot justify my tone and words. I know I have more grace in me than that,” said the actor in the apology letter.

“As for the joke… If a joke needs to be explained, then it wasn’t a very good joke to begin with. Sorry about a joke that didn’t land. I, however must insist my word play and humour had none of the malicious intent that so many people from all quarters have attributed to it. I am a staunch feminist ally and I assure you there was no gender implied in my tweet and certainly no intent to attack you as a woman,” he further stated in the letter.

I hope we can put this behind us and that you will accept my letter. You will always be my Champion, the actor said.
