Akshay Kumar, who was in Lords Cricket Stadium to experience the final match of ICC Women’s World Cup between India and England, faced backlash for violating the Code of Conduct for the Tricolour. The actor was seen holding the Indian National flag upside down while cheering Team India.
Akshay himself tweeted the picture, unaware of his folly but later realised his mistake and deleted the tweet. The 49-year old actor has now issued an apology which reads, “Extending my sincerest apology for violating the code of conduct for the tricolor. Didn’t mean to offend anyone, the picture has been removed”
