Riteish apologises for his pics in front of Shivaji Maharaj statue
Riteish Deshmukh took to Twitter to apologise for having his pictures taken in front of the statue of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj at Raigad fort, Mumbai. “We didn’t want to hurt anybody while sitting there or clicking photos. Yet, if anybody’s hurt, we apologise,” he tweeted.
“I had bowed before him and garlanded his statue,” Deshmukh said in a statement. “I wanted to sit at his feet from many years now. While sitting there, we clicked some pictures and posted them on social media and we only had devotion in our minds while doing so. We didn’t want to hurt anybody while sitting there or clicking photos. Yet, if anybody is hurt, we apologise.”
