After making a huge ruckus through social media over losing the debut award to Diljit Dosangh, Harshvardhan Kapoor has finally apologised to the Udta Punjab actor. Harshvardhan took to Twitter once again.
Love you to sir, have lots of respect for you and your body of work sorry if I said anything that came out wrong @diljitdosanjh @AnilKapoor, he tweeted.
What was surprising was that not only did Sonam Kapoor’s brother apologise for questioning Dosanjh’s Filmfare win, he also showed his love and respect for the Punjabi actor. Harshvardhan also tagged his father Anil Kapoor in the tweet.
Harshvardhan Kapoor might have won a few odd Best Debutante awards this year, but the youngster was evidently unhappy about losing out the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut to Punjabi singer-musician Diljit Dosanjh, for his acclaimed performance in Abhishek Chaubey's 'Udta Punjab'.
The actor, who's currently working on Vikramaditya Motwane's 'Bhavesh Joshi,' had told a leading daily, "Although I picked up two debutant awards earlier, I was really looking forward to winning the black lady. But I guess every awards event has its own parameters. I'll be honest, though. I think a debutant award is meant for someone working on his first film. It shouldn't go to an actor who has worked in several films in another industry or language."
If that statement wasn’t enough, the actor had taken the row to another level, by claiming that Diljit had made his Bollywood debut in a 2008 film.
Reportedly, Diljit said he wasn’t hurt by Harshvardhan’s rude comment and said, “It didn’t offend me at all. But one thing I know that my case is not the first. Dhanush also got the best debutant award, despite having worked in the south industry and even Fawad Khan received the award. It’s not as if something unethical happened.”
