During the promotion of his film Hum Do Humare Baraah, Annu Kapoor commented on a viral video where Kangana Ranaut was allegedly slapped by CISF personnel. His remarks quickly went viral on social media, prompting a response from the actress.

He was quoted saying, "Yeh Kangana ji kaun hain? Please batao na kaun hain? Zaahir hai aap pooch rahe hain toh koi bahut badi heroine hongi? Sundar hain kya?" Later in the conference, Kapoor commented on perceptions towards successful women in society. Kangana Ranaut, an actor-turned-politician, responded swiftly through her Instagram Stories, sharing a clip of Kapoor's press conference.

Kangana Rananut questioned, "Do you agree with Annu Kapoor ji that we tend to hate a successful woman, hate her more if she is beautiful and hate her even more passionately if she is powerful? Is it true?"


Now, Kapoor took to Twitter and reacted to Ranaut's statement and wrote, "Dear Sister Kangana, I am extracting some meaning from the answers to the questions posed by the media, so I thought I should clarify some facts."

"Every woman is respectable and worthy to me, so I can never disrespect any woman," he wrote adding, "Not knowing the system or laws of any country can lead to mistakes and punishment, but not knowing a particular person, place, or thing is not an error or a crime."

The apology followed Kangana Ranaut's response to Annu Kapoor's comments about societal views on successful women. The controversy began when Kapoor, during a press conference for his film Hum Do Hamare Baraah, claimed he was not familiar with who Kangana Ranaut was.

The backdrop to this controversy involves an alleged incident at Chandigarh airport on June 6, where Kangana Ranaut was reportedly slapped by a CISF woman constable while preparing to board a flight to Delhi for a meeting of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

An FIR has been registered against the constable under IPC sections 321 and 341, although no arrests have been made as of yet. (With inputs from ANI)
