Actor Sidharth Malhotra, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Aiyaary, has tweeted an apology for hurting the sentiments of some people while trying to speak Bhojpuri language. It so happened when Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary team graced Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 11 and Sid tried to speak Salman’s dialogue in Bhojpuri and made some remarks that didn’t go down well with actress Neetu Chandra. The lady lashed out at the actor.

Sid took to micro-blogging site Twitter and tweeted an apology. He wrote, “I recently tried speaking a new language while I was on a TV show. In the process if I inadvertently hurt anyone's feelings or sentiments, I apologise and assure you that no disrespect was meant in any way.”

After the episode was aired on social media, Neetu wrote, “So disappointed @S1dharthM some1who is so fortunate 2 work wd d best. Who despite being an outsider has made a name 4 himself,4 U 2 use ur words so loosely.2 disrespect #Bhojpuri on national TV. SHOCKED! How on earth does speaking in #Bhojpuri gives u a latrine feeling.Shame on U.”

This is not the first time Neetu has lashed out at any actor speaking in Bhojpuri as earlier, she also slammed Alia Bhatt for portraying the role of Bihari migrant in Udta Punjab.

On a related note, Aiyaary, which also features Manoj Bajpayee, is all set to hit the screens on February 9. The movie will fight the box office battle with Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan.
