Mumbai: Bollywood’s not so lucky star son, Tusshar Kapoor recently apologised to Preity Zinta for making a disparaging remark about her on Karan Johar’s chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’.

Apparently, Tusshar passed a nasty snide about Preity, when Johar asked the actor “who comes to mind when I say the following things.”

So when Karan said botox, Tusshar blurted out Preity, which made the Zinta girl quite livid. She quickly called Karan and requested him to delete the insulting question.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “Preity doesn`t talk rubbish about anyone. She sees no reason why Tusshar, who she hasn`t even worked with, should take off on her without provocation.”

It is believed that Preity called Tusshar and demanded an apology, to which the actor readily complied.

When contacted, Tusshar said, “Preity called me. She was upset and I cleared my stand. Everyone knows that Karan`s rapid fire round is just for laughs. You don`t even have the time to think when Karan puts you in the dock. Recently, I saw Preity`s picture in a magazine and she was looking stunning having lost a lot of weight. So, when Karan asked, Preity`s name just came out at the spur of the moment. There`s nothing more to it.”

“I`ve loved Preity since ‘Soldier’. I didn`t mean to hurt her and I`m feeling bad that my comment turned into such an ugly controversy. I`m glad that we spoke and sorted it out rather than letting it snowball into something worse. I don`t even know what botox actually is, and why will I say something like this about someone who I truly respect,” said the actor.

When asked if the botox question had been deleted, Tusshar added, “I don`t know. Maybe some of what I said might have been edited out.”
