In his video message shared on social media, with the caption “I am Sorry”, Aamir Liaquat said, “On the show yesterday, I had a slip of tongue where I lost control of over the flow of my words. Such gaffes can happen in a live transmission and I regret saying what I said”.

“Artists from across the border are very dear and respectable to us. I also praised them in the next segment of the show but that didn’t go viral. However, I sincerely apologise for the pain I might have caused to fans and followers around the world”, he continued.
Earlier, Adnan Siddiqui who was the guest at Jeewey Pakistan also clarified his position on the latest controversy.
Actor Adnan Siddiqui was a guest on the show when Hussain shared how the Bollywood actors Siddiqui has worked with have passed away, naming Irrfan Khan and Sridevi.
“You were offered roles in Mardaani 2 and Jism 2 but you declined, so the actors of that movie Rani Mukherjee and Bipasha Basu owe their life to you,” he continued.
