12th Fail star Vikrant Massey extends apology for hurting Hindu religious sentiments; netizens speculate the reason

   

The 12th Fail actor, Vikrant Massey, has started paying the price of being a successful actor in Bollywood. The moment an actor has to be particular about expressing his thoughts, especially on religious matters, it means they have indeed created a big space for themselves in the world of Bollywood. Earlier too, actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, and others have been seen apologizing for their statements and actions. And now it’s time for Vikrant Massey, who has joined the list of successful male lead actors of Bollywood with Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s 12th Fail. The actor recently issued an apology for hurting Hindu religious sentiments via his 2018 tweet. However, more than the old post, netizens are left wondering why the actor, out of nowhere, is apologizing for a tweet which he made five years ago. TV News and Entertainment News updates are now available on BollywoodLife on WhatsApp.

12th Fail star Vikrant Massey extends apology for hurting Hindu religious sentiments

For those unaware, in the year 2018 during the Kathua rape case, Vikrant Massey posted the below image. In the post, you can see how Goddess Sita is telling Lord Ram that she was glad to be kidnapped by Ravan rather than his devotees. The post was an indirect jab at the accused involved in the rape case. Check out the post below. Now, after almost five years, Vikrant Massey issued an apology and expressed that he made a huge mistake by dragging the names of gods in his old tweet. Check out the post below.

In context to one of my Tweets way back in 2018, I’d like to say a few words:

It was never my intention to hurt, malign or disrespect the Hindu community. But as I reflect in hindsight about a Tweet made in jest, I also release the distasteful nature of it. The same could Vikrant Massey (@VikrantMassey) February 20, 2024

Social media users were quickly to react to why Massey is apologizing for his tweet after five years. While the majority of the people thought that he knows his films can be boycotted if he doesn’t apologize for hurting Hindu sentiments, many also feel that it’s too late for the apology and the damage is already done.

Well Vikrant deeply disappointed

Translation: I was a small-time actor in 2018. Work was so much dried up that I had no films for 3 years between 2017-20. I had to stay relevant, so I used to tweet such things to stay in the good books of small-time woke filmmakers.

Now since my movie has done exceptionally THE SKIN DOCTOR (@theskindoctor13) February 21, 2024

Thats a lame excuse to make a self-qualifying statement and exonerate yourself.

VIKRANT MASSEY TWEETS TO VIKRANT MASSEY. VIKRANT MASSEY REPRIMANDS VIKRANT MASSEY. VIKRANT MASSEY CLARIFIES TO VIKRANT MASSEY. VIKRANT MASSERY EXONERATES VIKRANT MASSEY. Anyways how much you charged The Story Teller (@I_am_the_Story) February 20, 2024

You wrote an apology because you know the collective power of the audience, and you fear the boycott of your movies.
