After Speed Singhs co-producer Ajay Virmani’s official apology, producer of the film, Akshay Kumar has also stepped in to apologise for Russel Peter’s scathing comment on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Akshay called up Abhishek Bachchan yesterday and said that he was extremely upset about what Russel had said. He also told junior Bachchan that he had no control over what the stand-up comedian was saying. Abhishek though was quite cool about the whole thing. “Akshay is a dear friend. He had nothing to do with what Russell said, and he should not be apologising for a remark from an actor of his production. The derogatory comments were made by Russell, who should ideally be the one to say sorry,” Abhishek is said to have told one of his staff members.
