Actor Adnan Siddiqui has apologised over presenting an analogy between women and flies.

In his Instagram story, the actor said he would like to address his recent statement that he made jestingly rather than with an intention to hurt someone. 

He believed that his words were misconstrued, still he sought an apology if he hurt someone’s feelings inadvertently, he said.

Siddiqui further stated in his story that in the future he would careful and speak in clear and plain words.

“I’d like to address the recent comments I made, which were intended to be humorous and not to cause offense. Metaphors like ‘slippery as a snake’ are often used in a language. However, I understand how my words may have been misconstrued, and I regret any unintended offense. Moving forward, I will ensure my words are conveyed with greater clarity and sensitivity,” he wrote.

It should be noted that the actor recently spoke during a private TV show and said that a fly and woman were similar, the more you run after women, the more they will run away from you and if you sit down, they will sit on the hand like a fly.

He gave this example during a TV show and also said: "When I was running after a fly, it was running away and when I sat down, it came and sat on my nose."
