Young Hero Apologizes; Credit Goes to Siddharth!

ranveer-singh-apologizes-for-sexist-ad-credit-goes-to-siddharthPopular Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh was the centre of a lot of backlash after a ‘sexist’ Ad featuring the actor was displayed on a billboard. The ad by Jack and Jones had Ranveer in work attire carrying a woman on his shoulder with the caption stating ‘Don’t hold back. Take your work home.’

Actor Siddharth, who has made a name on social media for being a believer of equality of both the sexes, found that the ad objectified women and called it. However, the latest development in the controversy is that Ranveer has issued an official statement apologizing for the ad.

The actor said that, “I treat all women with the utmost respect both professionally and personally and would never do anything to disrespect them” and added that “we rectified [the mistake] immediately by having that hoarding taken down ASAP from everywhere over 30 cities overnight.” About the ad he said that, “It was important to give the brand creative freedom while designing their campaign, but I guess we got it wrong on one of those billboards and I’m sorry this happened but it’s a thing of the past.”
