Shreyas Talpade APOLOGISES For A Scene In His Old Movie Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal; Says, ‘I Should’ve Seen That’
Shreyas Talpade made a name for himself by doing comedy movies in Bollywood during the 2000s. One of the most-underrated actors, for the past few years he has focused on doing Marathi projects and continuing his stint as Laxman in Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal franchise. Recently, he came under the radar when a clip from his old movie Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal went viral on social media for hurting Hindu sentiments.

In the clip that is doing the rounds on Twitter, Shreyas can be seen stopping a small truck by putting his foot on the bonnet. However, what caught the attention of the netizens was that the bonnet, where he puts his foot, has ‘OM’ written on it. Netizens have claimed that he has hurt Hindu sentiments by doing so. The actor who returned to the small screens with Marathi television serial Mazhi Tuzhi Reshimgath, has now issued an apology for the same.

Sharing the note with the caption, “Apologies (folded hands emoji)”, on his official Twitter handle, Shreyas wrote, “There are too many factors while one is shooting... which includes one's mindset during a sequence, especially action scenes, the director's requirements, the time constraints & a lot of other things. But this is not me explaining or justifying myself for what you see in the video, all I can say is this was completely unintentional & am very apologetic for the same. I should've seen that & brought to the director's notice. Nevertheless, I would never intentionally hurt anyone's sentiments or repeat something like this.”

Talking about the movie, Priyadarshan directorial Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal was released in 2012. It also starred legendary actors like, Nana Patekar, Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Asrani, Shakti Kapoor and Nyra Banerjee. 

On the work front, last seen in the biographical drama Kaun Pravin Tambe? last year, Shreyas Talpade will be returning to the big screens as former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in Kangana Ranaut’s film Emergency. A period political drama, the movie is based on the emergency period in India during the mid-70s, which was announced by the then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi.
