Quickly right after he faced backlash, Daniel apologised through an Instagram submit. He wrote, “My latest stand-up video seems to have offended a whole lot of followers of the late Sushant Singh Rajput, numerous of who have pointed out an apology is in buy and I agree!”

“As a comedian, my only intention is usually only to entertain you and make you laugh, but from time to time in that endeavour, it is achievable that I could possibly evoke an unfavourable response. That getting stated, I would like to deal with my error. In direction of the finish of this bit, I stated that Rhea has been acquitted of her costs. That is factually incorrect. She has been launched on bail. For some weird cause, I applied the word ‘acquitted’ by error in the Pune demonstrate. It is surely not how I have written or carried out it elsewhere. I get that back and apologize to everyone whose emotions may well have been harm,” he additional.
