Overwhelmed by the negative reactions from the netizens, the representative from Eros Now went on record to share a statement to apologize for its inappropriate posts.

Especially, Ramesh Solanki who is known to be an avid Hindu activist even announced that he is about to take legal action against this company for hurting the Hindus’ sentiment.

They wrote,

"We at Eros love and respect our cultures equally. It is not, and it has never been, our intention to hurt anyone's emotions. We have deleted the concerned posts and we apologise for having offended anyone's sentiments."
