The reactions were so extreme that Richard apologised to his dear ‘Indian friends’ if he had “offended” anyone. “What is most important to me is that my intentions as an HIV/AIDS advocate be made clear and that my friends in India understand that it has never been nor could it ever be my intention to offend you. If that had happened, of course it is easy for me to offer a sincere apology,” Richard had said in a statement.

His apology letter had come a day after a Jaipur court had issued an arrest warrant against him. The actor also felt sorry for Shilpa following the controversy. “I assure you, I have utmost respect for her, and she knows this. Of course, I’ve felt terrible that she should carry a burden that is no fault of hers. The burden is mine and no one else,” he had said.

In his letter, Richard had described the way he kissed Shilpa on stage. “My clumsy attempt at a Shall We Dance move was a naive misread of Indian customs and I assure you nothing more,” he had said.
