Actor Vikrant Massey, who has been recently receiving applause for his latest offering 12th Fail, made headlines on social media for all the wrong reasons. An old tweet from 2018 resurfaced on X wherein he shared a cartoon of a conversation between Lord Ram and Goddess Sita, expressing his concerns over Kathua and Unnao cases. In his old tweet, Goddess Sita expressing relief for being kidnapped by Ravan rather than Ram's 'bhakts'. 

For this tweet, he faced massive backlash on social media, following which the actor has issued an apology clarifying his 'intentions'. 

''In context to one of my Tweets way back in 2018, I’d like to say a few words: It was never my intention to hurt, malign or disrespect the Hindu community. But as I reflect in hindsight about a Tweet made in jest, I also release the distasteful nature of it. The same could have been said without adding the cartoon which was published in a newspaper. And I’d with utmost humility like to apologise to each and everyone who has been hurt. As you all by now know, that I hold all faiths, beliefs and religions with the highest possible regard. We all grow up with time and reflect upon our mistakes. This was mine. Regards,'' Vikrant wrote in his apology post.

Not only this, the 12th Fail actor has also deleted his old tweet. 

Mumbai-based advocate Ashutosh Dubey on Tuesday night shared a screenshot of the chat he had with Vikrant Massey ahead of the latter's apology.
