EXCLUSIVE: Saina Nehwal’s Father Says Will Sue Actor Siddharth If He Doesn’t Apologise

Saina’s father Harvir Singh Nehwal defended her concern about the security breach during PM Modi’s visit to Punjab on Jan 5.

New Delhi: Reacting sharply to the remarks actor Siddharth made against ace shuttler Saina Nehwal, her father speaking exclusively to India Ahead said that he will sue the actor if he does not apologise.

Saina’s father Harvir Singh Nehwal demanded that the actor Siddharth should apologise for his alleged remarks against the badminton player. Harvir called the actor’s statement ‘derogatory’ and ‘cowardly’.

“The gentleman should not have said anything pampered by somebody. We don’t know him, he does not know us, we do not know his stature but Saina is well known in India and abroad. She has brought laurels to the country, and somebody gives her a lewd words…against Saina seems too derogatory,” said Saina’s father Harvir Singh Nehwal while expressing himself while in talks with Editor-In-Chief Bhupendra Chaubey.

Harvir Singh defended Saina’s concern about the security breach during PM’s visit to Punjab and denied that the remarks made by the actor were a part of public criticism after she joined BJP. Saina’s father objected to the term Siddharth used and said that he is a repeat offender.

“The upbringing is very bad of this gentleman. He is a repeat offender, time and again he has used bad words against women. So this type of person should avoid such words. And he should publically apologise to Saina so that we can get solace,” Saina’s father said.

On January 6, the actor in a Twitter post had retweeted a post by Saina Nehwal in which she had expressed her concern over the security breach of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his Punjab visit on January 5.

Raising concerns over the Prime Minister’s convoy being stopped for 15-20 minutes on a flyover in Punjab’s Bathinda as the road was blocked by protesting farmers, the ace badminton player tweeted, “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.”

Retweeting her post, Siddharth wrote, “Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India. Folded hands. Shame on you Rihanna.”

Following the controversy, the actor also responded that he did not mean to disrespect anyone and his “subtle cock” tweet contained no kind of insinuation. “Cock and bull. That’s the reference. Reading otherwise is unfair and leading. Nothing disrespectful was intended, said or insinuated. Period,” he tweeted.
