Lucknow: Even as two courts have issued summons to Sanjay Dutt for his "Pappi-Jhappi" (kiss and hug) remarks directed to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, the Bollywood star today said he had not received anything of the sort from the courts.

"So far I have not received any summon issued by any court in Uttar Pradesh," Dutt told reporters in reply to a question.

However, defending himself he said there was nothing wrong with his remark as "Jhappi is given even to mother and pappi to a child."

The actor had landed in trouble during Lok Sabha polls last year when separate FIRs were lodged against him in Pratapgarh and Barabanki for making "Pappi-Jhappi" remarks while campaigning for the SP.

Courts in Pratapgarh and Barabanki had recently issued summons to Dutt asking him to appear in connection with the case.
