Actor Kamaal R. Khan, who has been in news after filmmaker Vikram Bhatt slapped a defamation case against him for his derogatory remarks towards women in showbiz, has apologised for his doing.
Of late, Bhatt has been vocal in slamming Khan, who for long has been passing indecent and lewd remarks towards a string of Bollywood actresses on social media.
In reaction to Bhatt's statements on the controversy, Khan tweeted on Saturday night: "Today I watched Vikram Bhatt and he said -- 'KRK has got big social media power so he should decide whether he wants to be... Recognised as a troll only or respected critic', and 100 per cent agree with his statement. So thanks to Vikram Bhatt for showing me right way."
"Anyway thanks Vikram Bhatt for giving me very good advise and I am sorry if I hurt you in the past. Cheers and best of luck for future. I m sorry to all other Bollywood people also if I have hurt anyone by my statement or review. Today a new very serious type of critic has born."
Responding to Khan's change of heart, Bhatt expressed his admiration for the actor for accepting it on a social media platform.
"Kamaal R Khan it takes a lot of courage to correct your ways and accept it on a public platform. I admire you for it. I am sure everybody in our fraternity will accept your apology and applaud you for understanding," he tweeted.
"You are a talented critic and people will take you seriously now because you are not a troll anymore. Cheers," he added.
Time and again, Khan in his past tweets, wrote in a deprecating manner about actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Huma Qureshi, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra, Sunny Leone, Bipasha Basu and Nargis Fakhri.
