Actor Ranveer Singh has been busy promoting his soon to be releasing movie Befikre. The actor, who is known for his quirky, happening and bold behavior, found himself in the middle of a controversy with an advertisement. Recently, Ranveer featured in an advertisement by Danish menswear brand Jack and Jones that was heavily criticised on Twitter for its sexist approach. Though the company apologised for the same, Ranveer Singh’s fans demanded an apology from the actor as well. The actor has now released a statement saying that he treats all the women with respect and that he will never personally do anything to disrespect them.
Ranveer Singh issued this statement :
“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. We rectified it immediately by having that hoarding taken down ASAP from everywhere over 30 cities overnight. I treat all women with the utmost respect both professionally and personally and would never do anything to disrespect them.”
A complaint against the ad was registered in the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) forcing the MNC to withdraw the ad at once. Hope this sorts out the matter now!!!
