Veteran actor Adnan Siddiqui appeared on Aamir Liaquat Hussain’s latest Ramzan show called “Jeeway Pakistan” and went home with a controversy attached to his name.

Siddiqui has shared a heartfelt apology to the families and peers of the two Bollywood legends in his Instagram post. Aamir Liaquat, who is also an MNA, has posted a video apology as well to appease the backlash against him.
The Controversial Statement
While talking to Adnan Siddiqui during Friday’s Jeeway Pakistan show about the recent deaths of Bollywood actors, Aamir Liaquat said that both late Sridevi and recently deceased Irrfan Khan had one thing common: they both worked with Adnan Siddiqui.
Siddiqui had previous worked with Sridevi in her last movie “Mom,” whereas he last shared the screen with Irrfan Khan in “A Mighty Heart.” Liaquat went as far as to say however Siddiqui works with in Bollywood passes away.
Adnan Siddiqui’s Response
While Adnan Siddiqui tried to gently ask Liaquat to not make such jokes about sensitive matters, he took to his Instagram where he left a heartfelt apology to his fans at large. “Not only were they both close to me but also as a human it was wrong on so many levels. I cannot even call it ‘hitting below the belt’” he wrote in his apology.
“It was an extremely callous act to joke about the deceased. This is in very bad taste, not only does it show him and me but also the entire country in bad light,” he added. He conveyed his apologies to the families of the deceased actors.

After Adnan Siddiqui posted his apology, Aamir Liaquat also took to his Instagram and shared a brief video of himself apologizing. “Sometimes you can get carried away with what you’re was saying on a live show,” he said in the video.
