Following an uproar over his controversial ad for Danish fashion brand Jack & Jones, Ranveer Singh apologised yesterday, saying he had no intention to disrespect women. The advertisement featured the actor carrying a woman on his shoulders; the punchline said, "Don't hold back.

Take your work'. Rang De Basanti actor Siddharth was among the first few to slam it, saying it was a "new low for women's rights in the workplace in India" and added a hashtag 'Fail' to it. In his apology, Ranveer said, "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 am sorry this happened, but it's a thing of the past...

We rectified it immediately by having that hoarding taken down from everywhere over 30 cities overnight. I treat all women with utmost respect, both professionally and personally, and would never do anything to disrespect them."
