Nawazuddin apologises

Saturday, November 04, 2017

Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui on Monday issued an apology for hurting the sentiments of women whose names he had mentioned in his memoir, An Ordinary Life, reportedly without their consent and has decided to withdraw the book.

The 43-year-old actor took to Twitter in the wake of the controversy surrounding his autobiography, co-written by Rituparna Chatterjee, in which he detailed his relationships and flings with former miss India Niharika Singh and actor Sunita Rajwar.

"I'm apologising to everyone whose sentiments are hurt because of the chaos around my memoir An Ordinary Life. I hereby regret and decide to withdraw my book," he tweeted.

A spokesperson from the publisher Penguin Random House has confirmed to PTI that they were withdrawing the book.
