Now, Dulquer Finally Comments
Addressing the matter, the ‘Charlie’ actor shares his opinion saying, “It is his statement, so I don’t want to dive into it. I cherish every one. I feel that I have a wonderful group of friends, including co-actors and industry peers. I’m easygoing, I don’t usually complain, and I’m fine. I believe whatever he chose to say, maybe he wasn’t considering it fully. That’s why he apologized. He’s a close friend, and I suppose he was concerned that It impacted all of us, so he clarified,” he said while speaking to Zoom.
Rana’s apology read, “I am genuinely troubled by the negativity that has been aimed at Sonam due to my comments, that are totally untrue and were meant entirely in a light-hearted manner. As friends, we often exchange playful banter, and I deeply regret that my words have been misinterpreted.
I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt apologies to Sonam and Dulquer, both of whom I hold in great esteem. I hope this clarification puts an end to any speculation and misunderstanding. Thank you for your understanding,” he wrote on X.
