Bowing to all-round to criticism, actor-turned-MLA N Balakrishna has apologized for his ‘off-the-cuff’ remarks saying that he does not intend to hurt anyone. “Those remarks were made in a casual, jovial and convivial way and I don’t wish to hurt anyone” he said.
Balakrishna’s remarks at the audio release function of Savitri that “a lady should either be kissed or made pregnant and his fans would do the same” created furore. Several women groups and YSRC have demanded apology from him. YSRC leader Roja, who has acted in several movies with the hero- has denounced the comments and urged him to say sorry.
The Telangana Advocates JAC has also filed a case in a city police station today against Balayya.
Sensing the mood, the MLA has apologized. “Our family respects women and we treat any woman as our sister and I have lot of respect for women. If I hurt anyone through my remarks, I am sorry” was his statement.
