In a recent turn of events, former Pakistani cricketer Abdul Razzaq found himself in hot water over what many deemed as ‘disrespectful’ comments directed at Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai. The controversy unfolded during a press conference on Tuesday when Razzaq remarked, “We don’t really intend to improve and develop the players, in my opinion. It is like if you think you will marry Aishwarya (Rai) and have a good-natured and moral child. It will never happen like that.”
The insensitive comment quickly ignited a storm of criticism on social media, with numerous individuals expressing their disapproval of Razzaq’s statement, including former cricketer Mohammad Yousaf. In response to the backlash, Razzaq issued a public apology to Aishwarya Rai, acknowledging the error in his remarks. A video of the apology surfaced online, showcasing his remorse for the controversial statement.
Amidst this controversy, Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan entered the narrative with a cryptic post that many speculate is connected to the unfolding events involving Abdul Razzaq. The post, shared on social media, has fueled curiosity and speculation regarding Bachchan’s take on the matter.
As the cricket world reacts to Razzaq’s public apology and the aftermath of his ill-fated comment, the incident serves as a reminder of the impact and responsibility that public figures hold in shaping conversations and maintaining decorum, both on and off the field.
