Actor Siddharth who made headlines for posting an inappropriate tweet on badminton player Saina Nehwal for her reaction to the alleged breach of Prime Minister Modi’s security in Punjab has now issued an apology letter on Twitter.

Saina's tweet read, ‘No nation can claim itself to be safe if the security of its own PM gets compromised. I condemn, in the strongest words possible, the cowardly attack on PM Modi by anarchists. #BharatStandsWithModi #PMModi." Siddharth replied to this tweet which is now deleted and wrote, ‘Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India. Shame on you #Rihanna."

After receiving backlash for his unseemly sexist tweet the Boys actor shared an open apology letter that reads, "Dear Saina, I want to apologise to you for my rude joke that I wrote as a response to a tweet of yours, a few days ago. I may disagree with you on many things but even my disappointment or anger when I read your tweet, cannot justify my tone and words. I know I have more grace in me than that. As for the joke... If a joke needs to be explained, then it wasn't a very good joke to begin with. Sorry about a joke that didn't land."

Further, he added, "I, however must insist my word play and humour had none of the malicious intent that so many people from all quarters have attributed to it. I am a staunch feminist ally and I assure you there was no gender implied in my tweet and certainly no intent to attack you as a woman.‘I hope we can put this behind us and that you will accept my letter. You will always be my Champion. Honestly, Siddharth," he concluded.
