Deepak Tijori clarifies his statement about Amrita Singh preventing Saif Ali Khan from supporting his film: “Such a derogatory quote.”

Deepak Tijori clarified his viral comment, stating, “I would like to clarify something. I said something recently that got misconstrued. I was asked how I managed to get so many actors for the premiere scene in Pehla Nasha. I replied, ‘We were all friends. Hence, we supported each other in every way we can.’ Then I said, ‘When Saif Ali Khan was getting ready, Amrita Singh asked him where he was going. To which he said, ‘I am going to shoot for the premiere scene in Deepak’s film’. At this, Amrita replied, ‘Kya baat hai (Wow, amazing). Your generation of actors is different. We never supported one another in such a manner. Aap logon ki dosti ko manna padega (You guys really have a great friendship).’

Deepak Tijori recently made headlines when he mentioned in an interview that Amrita Singh had stopped her then-husband Saif Ali Khan from making a cameo appearance in his film. However, in a recent interaction with Bollywood Hungama, the actor-filmmaker clarified that his words were misconstrued.

Deepak Tijori referred to Amrita Singh as a ‘sweetheart’ and clarified, “This was my quote. But it was published that Amrita stopped Saif from going to the premiere. I never said that. Amrita was only amazed to see the bond between Saif and other actors. In her time, they used to not help each other. Amrita is a sweetheart and a wonderful woman. She has always been supportive of everybody as an actor. I have not worked with her. However, for us, her debut film Betaab (1983) was the ultimate film. I must have seen it a hundred times. Itna ghatiya quote bana diya hai (I feel like my words have been misinterpreted and it’s really upsetting to see how they’ve been twisted into something so repulsive). I wake up and I get pained when I see the news stories. I never said that.”

Deepak Tijori made his acting debut in Mahesh Bhatt’s “Aashiqui,” alongside Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal.
