Veteran Pakistani cricketer Abdul Razzaq found himself at the center of a firestorm of criticism after making a controversial remark regarding Indian actor Aishwarya Rai at an event earlier this week. His harrowing analogy, which sparked a tremendous backlash, prompted him to apologize to the Bollywood superstar for his tasteless remarks.
At a press conference where cricket, coaching and intentions were discussed, Razzaq’s comment took an unfortunate turn when he accidentally used Aishwarya Rai’s name in an analogy. He expressed regret, admitting that his remarks were inappropriate and far from the point of discussion he intended.
In his apology, which was widely circulated on social media platforms, Razzaq clarified that his statement was a mistake. He admitted that he slipped his tongue while making a different point and mistakenly referred to Aishwarya Rai instead of using the intended example.
Expressing his regret and offering his sincerest apologies to the actor, Razzaq emphasized that his intention was never to offend. He reiterated that his choice of words was unintentional and did not reflect his true thoughts or feelings.
The former all-rounder’s comment, which included the Bollywood icon’s name, received severe criticism from netizens and the public. Many people condemned his remarks and called the analogy inappropriate and unnecessary in the context of the debate.
The incident sparked immediate backlash, with social media users condemning Razzaq’s poor choice of words during a public event where he was accompanied by other cricket veterans, including Shahid Afridi, Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal. Critics pointed out that the example he was trying to convey was completely irrelevant to the current debate.
Razzaq’s apology to Aishwarya Rai was aimed at making amends and clearing up the unintended offense caused by his statement.
