After the recent fiasco over Jaan’s statement in Bigg Boss 14, his father and singer Kumar Sanu has apologised on his behalf. In a video, Kumar Sanu shared that he has learnt that Jaan made some objectionable statements in the house and he wants to apologise on his behalf.
He says in the video, “I heard that my son, Jaan, said something very wrong that never crossed my mind or could have crossed my mind in these 41 years. Maharashtra, Mumbai and Mumba devi blessed me and gave me name, fame and everything else. I can never think such things about that same Mumba devi and Maharashtra. I love and respect all languages of India. I have sung songs in different languages.”
He further added, “I haven’t stayed with them for 27 years and I don’t know what teachings he got, what to speak and what not to speak. I don’t know about the upbringing his mother gave him and I don’t understand how he could have said such a thing. I am sorry. As a father, I can only apologise to you all.”
In a recent episode, Bigg Boss called Jaan in the confession room and he apologised on the show and said that he unwittingly hurt the sentiments of Marathi-speaking people. He said that it was not intentional and that he would not repeat his mistake.
