Tamil and Telugu actor Siddharth is currently in the headlines because of his tweet on Badminton player Saina Nehwal. He called for a controversy when he replied to Saina Nehwal's tweet on PM Narendra Modi's security lapse incident. He got called mysoginist and more for the use of word 'cock' in his tweet. Later, he clarified on the same and wrote that he was making the use of idiom - 'cock and bull'. However, netizens bashed him left, right and centre and he even got in trouble with National Commission of Women. Amidst this, his old tweet allegedly targeting Samantha Ruth Prabhu has gone viral on social media.
It was right after Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya announced their divorce that Siddharth had tweeted about 'cheaters'. He wrote, "One of the first lessons I learnt from a teacher in school... "Cheaters never prosper." What's yours? (sic)." Fans had quickly come to a conclusion that he was targetting Samantha Ruth Prabhu as several reports suggested that they were a couple in the past. This old tweet has once again come to fore amidst Saina Nehwal row.
Siddharth has now issued an apology to Saina Nehwal. He wrote, "I am a staunch feminist ally and I assure there was no gender implied in my tweet and certainly no intent to attack you as a woman. I hope we can put this behind us and that you will accept my letter. You will always be my Champion. Honestly, Siddharth."
