Veteran actor Om Puri, who was under fire for making derogatory remarks against Indian soldiers, visited the house of martyred BSF soldier Nitin Yadav in Nagla Bari village in Etawah, on Tuesday.
The veteran actor, on the occasion of his 66th birthday , said he had come “for repentance, and not forgiveness”.
He met Yadav’s family and paid floral tribute to the martyr.
My comments are beyond forgiveness. Had I uttered those words in any other country I would have been executed. I seek forgiveness and request you to accept me as a part of your family – the actor said to the soldier’s family.
