Adnan, who has labored in exhibits "Mere Qatil Mere Dildar" and "Pakeeza", had shared a heartfelt submit after Irrfan Khan's demise. "You received an offer for Jism 2 as well which you didn't do, so these two actresses (Rani Mukherji and Bipasha Basu) owe their lives to you". The actor also worked with Sridevi in the Bollywood film Mom in 2017. Adnan, who was visibly uncomfortable with the statement, had told off Husain immediately and had later taken to Twitter to express his feelings about the incident elaborately.

Adnan had worked with Irrfan Khan in 2007 in "A Mighty Heart". Angelina Jolie was also a part of that movie. Post the show, Aamir got a lot of criticism for such corrosive remarks and finally, he had to apologise. He did a chat show where the host Aamir Liaquat said something that shouldn't have been said.

"When I said those words, they didn't seem like a big deal to me but now that I have thought about it I realise that I shouldn't have said that". I'm sorry. Thank you. Keeping humanity in mind, this should not have been said.

Later even Adnan made an official statement of twitter, regretting his tolerance for such remarks. But this needs to go out.

With the tense climate in India over the loss, in Pakistan an anchor Amir Liaquat made an inappropriate joke on the deaths of Irrfan Khan and Sridevi. Not only was that they were close to me, but as a person it was wrong on so many levels. "I can not even call it hitting below the belt", added Adnan.

Calling it an "extremely callous act", Siddiqui said the remarks put the "entire country in bad light". "That is in very unhealthy style, not exclusively does it present him and me but additionally the whole nation in unhealthy gentle". I want to apolgise to the families of Sridevi Sahiba and Irrfan Khan Sahab and their loved ones,"he wrote in the apology". When you see my body language, what he said was extremely uncomfortable to me, but I didn't want to bend to this level.
