Speaking about the incident, Kiku said in an interview, "I am an actor and the actor is given a script and clothes by the makers and will be instructed to act accordingly. As an actor, I had fulfilled my duties. I never realised that the look will hurt anybody's religious sentiments. And if this has happened, mistakenly, I have apologised before, and now again I'm apologising."

He further added, "I don't want my work to harm anybody in any way. I have been in the industry for 13 years and my work is to make people laugh, and I have been doing the same thing. I just want people to be happy with me."

Kiku continued, "I had accepted the look that was given to me, and I never said no to any acts. We are religious families, and I respect all saints/babas."

While many celebrities and fans have come in support of Kiku, there are a few followers of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who have appreciated the legal action. Here are a few celebrities who have supported Kiku.
