Now, the actress clarified her assertion and said that Akshay didn’t mean to hurt her. Taking to Twitter, she wrote, “I want to make it clear, making those comments were @akshaykumar’s way of being playful with me. Even though his comments stayed with me for a while, I believe he didn’t mean to hurt me or cause me distress. I adore all of his work and wish him love & luck for his future!”
