Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who was seen cheering at the Lord’s for Indian women’s cricket team on Sunday, has apologised for posting a picture of himself in which he is seen holding the national flag upside down.

The actor faced backlash on the social media for violating the code of conduct for the tricolor and later tweeted an apology on his official Twitter account.

“Extending my sincerest apology for violating the code of conduct for the tricolor. Didn’t mean to offend anyone,the picture has been removed,” Akshay Kumar wrote. But Akshay did share some happy moments with the Team India.

Earlier, the actor had said that he ran barefoot on the platform because of the excitement as he boarded the train from Leeds to London so that he reaches the Lord’s on time.

“This is how excited I am, never in my life have I run for a train barefoot to make it in time for a match!! Come on,” the actor wrote.

While the actor faced criticism, many of his fans supported him, calling it a unintentional mistake.

Akshay Kumar is in London to promote his film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ which is going to release on August 11 worldwide.
