Veteran actor Amitabh Bacchan has issued an apology to fans for sharing a wrong advertisement. The Sholay actor, who’s the brand ambassador of Legends League Cricket, featured in the promo of the upcoming tournament. Sachin Tendulkar’s name was also mentioned in the promo as fans geared up to see the former Indian batter back in action again. However, Tendulkar’s company, SRT Sports Management Private Limited, later clarified that the batting great won’t feature in the tournament.
The firm also urged the organizers to not mislead Amitabh Bacchan and fans with false information. This gaffe left the fans fumed as social media got flooded with criticism for the organizers. The Sholay actor also came under the scanner for sharing incorrect information. However, following the clarification tweet from Sachin’s company, Amitabh apologized to the fans and shared the revised promo which didn’t have Tendulkar’s name.
“T 4152 – CORRECTION : Legends League Cricket T20 , FINAL promo .. apologies .. and regrets for any inconvenience caused .. the error was inadvertent .. #legendsleaguecricket #bosslogonkagame,” the legendary actor wrote on Twitter.
