Speaking to ANI, Saina’s father Harveer Singh Nehwal said, “I know all the details. Whatever he (Siddharth) said was not correct. He is known to be a big actor in the South. He used a lot of false words against Saina. It is very wrong for him to give such derogatory statements.
Harveer said that Saina is currently in Delhi and is preparing for the India Open 2022. “I spoke to Saina on the phone and she said she did not want anyone to write about her. Other organizations, such as the National Commission for Women, also supported it, and it was very bad and I had never heard such words from a gentleman.
He said the actor should apologize to his daughter. “We condemn his statement and apologize for his intentional or unintentional actions. It is not good to call a woman by these words. “
Winner of the world’s micro-confidence … Thank God that India has defenders. ⁇
