Actor Adnan Siddiqui was a part of the Pakistani show where the host Amir Liaquat jokes about Irrfan Khan and Sridevi’s death!
It was extremely disgraceful how Pakistani TV show host Amir Liaquat jokes about the demise of Indian stars Irrfan Khan and Sridevi. Adnan Siddiqui, who has worked with both of them, was a part of the show. And the actor has now issued his statement on social media.
He wrote, “So I don’t know how to explain what I’m feeling right now or what to say. But this needs to go out. I was invited on the live chat show ‘Jeewey Pakistan’ yesterday when this unfortunate incident happened. The anchor Amir Liaquat Sahab joked about something extremely sensitive. Not only were they both close to me but also as a human it was wrong on so many levels. I cannot even call it ‘hitting below the belt’.”
Adding how it puts their country in a bad light, he said, “It was an extremely callous act to joke about the deceased. This is in very bad taste, not only does it show him and me but also the entire country in bad light. I want to apologise to the families of Sridevi Sahiba and lrrfan Khan Sahab, their loved ones and fans. If you see my body language I was extremely uncomfortable with what he said but I didn’t want to stoop to that level. I regret being on the show. I’ve learnt my lesson and I promise I will not tolerate such an act in future. I was hoping this bit wouldn’t become public but unfortunately it has. I’m sorry. Thank you.”
For the unversed, host Amir joked about how Adnan’s co-stars have passed away.
