Last month, the Dabangg actor used the word 'bhangi' during a radio interview, which had offended the Valmiki community. During a radio interaction, she said that she likes to dress casually while going to airports. She also added there are days when she does not get time for the airport look due to her hectic schedule.
However, there was something offending that the actor said that has been removed from the radio interaction. She said that she won't purposely dress like a 'bhangi' while going to any place. After receiving backlash, she posted this on her social media, seeking forgiveness if she hurt any sentiments of the community.
