The controversy erupted when Razzaq made a comment during a press conference about the Pakistan cricket team’s performance in the 2023 World Cup, bringing up Aishwarya Rai’s name. The comment faced widespread criticism, accusing him of disrespecting Aishwarya. Former cricketer Mohammad Yousaf also condemned Razzaq’s remark.
Razzaq later appeared on SAMAA TV to apologize to Aishwarya Rai. In the video statement, he explained, “Yesterday, we were talking about cricket coaching and intentions. I had a slip of the tongue and mistakenly took Aishwarya Rai’s name. I apologize to her personally. I did not intend to hurt anyone’s sentiment.” The controversy remains a topic of discussion, with Amitabh Bachchan’s cryptic post adding a layer of mystery to the unfolding events.
