I recently tried speaking a new language while I was on a TV show. In the process if I inadvertently hurt anyone's feelings or sentiments, I apologise and assure you that no disrespect was meant in any way.— Sidharth Malhotra (@S1dharthM) January 22, 2018
Sidharth was slammed by Twitter users for his unpleasant remark, including actress Neetu Chandra. The actress schooled Sidharth Malhotra, for disrespecting the language and wrote: "So disappointed at Sidharth Malhotra someone, who is so fortunate to work with the best. Who despite being an outsider has made a name for himself, for you to use your words so loosely? To disrespect Bhojpuri on national TV. SHOCKED! How on earth does speaking in #Bhojpuri gives u a latrine feeling. Shame on you."

Twitter reacted strongly after Sidharth Malhotra made the offensive comment. The Internet condemned Sidharth's words and posted angry tweets in Neetu Chandra's support. "Proud of you @Neetu_Chandra that you have the courage to stand up for the right things! No one can insult any language like this," read a tweet while another user wrote: "Well done Mam! @Neetu_Chandra I fully agree with you! Languages and traditions need to be respected."
Here's a sample of Twitter's fury.
