New Delhi [India]: The “Hera Pheri” actor these days got here beneath the fireplace for a statement he made all through an election rally in Gujarat.
During his speech addressing the group, he stated “Gas cylinders are high priced, however, their charge will come down. People will get employment too. But what will appear if Rohingya migrants and Bangladeshis start living around you, like in Delhi? What will you do with gas cylinders? Cook fish for the Bengalis?” he said. The feedback did not pass down properly with many. The actor was accused of hurting the feelings of Bengali human beings with his phrases.
A Twitter user wrote, “We are sad that & hurt at the recent comments of @SirPareshRawal”.
Amidst the backlash, the “OMG: Oh My God!” actor took to Twitter to clarify and express regret.
In reaction to a person asking him to “make clear”, the actor wrote, ”
“of course the fish is not the issue AS GUJARATIS DO COOK AND EAT FISH. BUT LET ME CLARIFY BY BENGALI I MEANT ILLEGAL BANGLA DESHI N ROHINGYA. BUT STILL IF I HAVE HURT YOUR FEELINGS AND SENTIMENTS I DO APOLOGISE.”
