New Delhi: Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal on Wednesday said she is happy that actor Siddharth issued a public apology for his unsavoury remarks on her after she raised concerns about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security breach recently. Siddharth’s reply to the Olympic bronze medallist’s tweet on PM Modi’s security breach in Punjab attracted much flak a few days ago, with the National Commission for Women (NCW) asking Twitter India to “immediately” block the actor’s account.

He issued an apology on Wednesday, calling his comment a “rude joke” and admitted that he could not “justify my tone and words.” Saina said she is glad that he acknowledged that.

“He only said it and he is now apologising. I was surprised to see myself trending on Twitter that day. I haven’t spoken to him but I am happy that he apologised,” she said on the sidelines of the ongoing India Open here.

“See, it is about women, he shouldn’t target a woman like that but it’s okay, I am not bothered about it, I am happy in my space and god bless him,” she added. After Saina posted her tweet on PM’s security breach, Siddharth had tweeted, “Subtle cock champion of the worldThank God we have protectors of India (sic).”

Following strong criticism on social media for his comment, Siddharth said that “nothing disrespectful was intended”.

Rang De Basanti actor Siddharth Anand landed into controversy on Monday after making a crude and sexually insulting comment online against star badminton player Saina Nehwal after she denounced PM Modi’s security failure at Ferozepur on January 5.

Nehwal tweeted that the security of a country’s Prime Minister is jeopardised, and no country can claim to be safe and she condemns the barbaric attack on PM Modi. Siddharth, on the other hand, replied to Saina’s tweet and said, “Subtle c**k champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India Shame on you #Rihanna.
