Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar was cheering for Indian women cricket team at the finals of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, which was held yesterday in London.
Well, the actor found himself in the eye of a storm after he posted a picture of himself waving the Indian flag upside down.
He posted a picture on Twitter, and within minutes, received a lot of flak. Knowing the superstars’s love and dedication towards the country and the armed forces, it didn’t come as a surprise that he immediately apologized for his mistake.
The actor deleted the picture and posted a message which read, “Extending my sincerest apology for violating the code of conduct for the tricolor. Didn’t mean to offend anyone, the picture has been removed.”
