Television actress Shweta Tiwari stated after a case was registered in Madhya Pradesh against her “Meri bra ka size bhagwan le rahe hain” comment. She has been receiving a lot of criticism after her comment. Now the actress issues an official statement and apologies for unintentionally hurting religious sentiments.
Shweta Tiwari‘s statement read: “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 about ‘Bhagwan’ was in context with Sourabh Raj Jain’s popular role of a deity. People associate character names with 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 the 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 apologize for the hurt that the statement has unintentionally caused to a lot of people.”
Actor-RJ-host Salil Acharya, who was a part of the event, spoke exclusively with BT and said that Shweta’s statement was taken out of context. In a video statement, the actor shared, “I was on stage with Shweta when this happened. I was asking a question to actor Sourabh Raaj Jain, who plays a bra fitter in the web series. I had asked him that for a person who has played mythological and godly roles in the past, how was it playing something so different. Funnily, Shweta said that now we are making God do this. When she said God, she meant Sourabh because he is known for his mythological roles. Her statement has been taken out of context and I really would like to clear the air.”
