Ranveer Singh apologises for ‘sexist’ ad

Ranveer Singh, who is known for his usual quirky style and cool demeanour, found himself in the eye of a storm when an advertisement featuring him was being bashed on social media for being sexist. The ad – a hoarding – in question, shows Ranveer carrying a girl over his shoulders and the caption read, “Don’t hold back. Take your work home.”
After numerous comments and posts asking him to react, Ranveer has finally broken his silence. As a clarification of his stand, Ranveer has issued a statement that reads, “It was important to give the brand creative freedom while designing their campaign, but I guess we got it wrong on one of those billboards and I’m sorry this happened but it’s a thing of the past.. we rectified it immediately by having that hoarding taken down ASAP from everywhere over 30 cities overnight. I treat all women with the utmost respect both professionally and personally and would never do anything to disrespect them.”
