The case was filed based on the complaint lodged by Sonu Prajapati, a local citizen. who alleged that the actor has hurt his religious sentiments through her comment.
Shweta Tiwari has apologised following the controversy over her ‘God is taking size of my bra’ remark. “When put in context, one will understand that the statement… was in context with [colleague] Sourabh Raj Jain’s popular role of a deity,” she said. “As…a staunch believer of ‘Bhagwan’ myself, there’s no way I’d intentionally or unintentionally….hurt sentiments by and large,” Shweta added.
