Harshvardhan Kapoor has tweeted an apology to Diljit Dosanjh after the Best Male Debut award rant that happened earlier. All is well between these two Punjabi boys! The actor, who made his debut in Rakyesh Omprekash Mehra’s Mirzya tweeted, “Love you to sir, have lots of respect for you and your body of work sorry if I said anything that came out wrong @diljitdosanjh @AnilKapoor” What started off as a small disagreement with the awards committee soon became a big issue when Kapoor Jr quoted to a leading daily on how he thought it was unfair to award the Filmfare’s black lady to Diljit Dosanjh, who already as experience in the line of acting. Basically, things just went on to escalate after that because even Diljit opened up and said how he has immense respect for Anil sir and that words of Harsh don’t affect him. Finally, to put an end to all this, the Kapoor scion tweeted that he is sorry and holds a lot of respect for the Punjabi superstar.
Quite recently after Filmfare awards got over, a dejected Harsh had quoted to a leading daily, “Although I picked up two debutant awards earlier, I was really looking forward to winning the black lady. But I guess every awards event has its own parameters. I’ll be honest, though. I think a debutant award is meant for someone working on his first film. It shouldn’t go to an actor who has worked in several films in another industry or language.” This resulted in a big controversy as people from everywhere started questioning the parameters of judging by the Filmfare committee. Everybody thought it would end there but it didn’t. (ALSO READ – Harshvardhan Kapoor is busy defending his stand on social media against Diljit Dosanjh winning the Best Debut award)

Just today morning, in an interview with Mid-Day, the Punjabi superstar finally broke his silence on the comment made by Harshvardhan. “I wasn’t affected by what Harshvardhan said. In fact, I am a huge fan of Anil Kapoor sir. I have no issues with him [Harshvardhan]. Being Anil Kapoor’s son makes him a star son and not a star, right? He will also become a big star some day. I have no hard feelings towards him,” said the Udta Punjab actor. He further added, “As far as my knowledge goes, Dhanush sir, who has worked in so many films down South, also won a debutant award (‘Raanjhanaa’, 2013) and Fawad Khan, who has done TV and films in Pakistan, also received the same honour (‘Khoobsurat’, 2014). So, I was surely not nominated in the wrong category, but I did not expect to win.” Evidently, his examples were proof enough that the trend of awarding the black lady to actors who have previously worked in different industries has been prevalent since long.

Finally, just sometime ago, the Miryza actor took to Twitter to apologise to his contemporary. In return even Diljit replied by saying, “Nahi Veere Gal Hee Koi Ni Baba Nanak Hameshan Chardi Kala Ch Rakhey Respect. Isn’t that sweet? What we find tad bit weird though, is the fact that Kapoor tagged his father Anil in the apology tweet. We wonder why the young actor tagged his father when clearly it was a matter that occurred between him and Diljit. What do you think, BollywoodLifers? Tell us in the comments section below.
