Ranveer Singh is seen in many crazy advertisements but his new advert for a popular clothing brand has drawn the ire of many people who deemed it as offensive and insensitive towards women. However, the brand has confirmed that they have pulled out the hoarding across all cities and even Ranveer Singh apologised on the issue.
"It was important to give the brand the creative freedom while designing the campaign but I guess we got it wrong on one of those billboards. I am sorry this happened but it is a thing of past. We rectified it immediately by having the hoarding taken down as early as possible from over 30 cities overnight" Ranveer Singh said in a statement.
He further added, "I treat all women with utmost respect both professionally and personally and would never do anything to disrespect them."
Even Rang De Basanti star Siddharth was offended with the billboard and was the first celeb to talk against it. He took to Twitter showing his displeasure as, "A new low for women's rights in the workplace in India. What were they thinking? #Fail."
