That was what actress Priyanka Karki started with in a 500+ words apology letter (in English alone).

Before I share Priyanka’s statement, the background information:
Actress Richa Sharma talked in a program held in Kathmandu about why she didn’t like ‘Chhakka Panja’ movie and why it was against womenkind. In response, the makers of the movie attacked Richa by accusing her of telling the viewers ‘fools’ and telling her to ‘get well soon’. There were divided views on who was right. In my Twitter poll, majority of my followers thought Richa was right and ‘Chhakka Panja’ team was wrong to attack Richa.
In response, Richa claimed that she never told the viewers were fools and she was only advocating the better representation of women in films. After Richa’s statement, Richa got all the sentiment and people went against Deepak, Deepa and ‘Chhakka Panja’ team.
That is how Priyank’s statement was born.
In response to Priyanka’s response, Deepak Raj Giri wrote, “You have written it well. Everybody has made mistakes..” Here is what Priyanka wrote in Nepal (the English version follows).
