“Because of my language barrier, I was genuinely misinformed about the meaning of the word. Once I was made aware of its meaning I immediately took the part down. I have utmost respect for every single person from every caste, creed or gender and acknowledge their immense contribution to our Society or nation. I  sincerely would like to apologize to every single person who has been unintentionally hurt by the usage of the word,” she wrote.
