If any person or community has been hurt by the usage of any word by me, despite it being unintentional and un-derogatory to anyone, i humbly apologise for the same."

For those who doesn't know the matter, let us tell you that the actress in one of promotional interview for Khandaani Shafakhana, said that she doesn't get enough time to prepare for the airport looks. She said, "Yeh thodi hai ki purposely ghar jaake, bhangi banke chalu jaaugi".
