Statement from Cardinal Gracias

April 2, 2016

We are given to understand from media reports that a popular Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan had, in January, tweeted a flippant refrence to the Pope, the Supreme Head of the Catholic Church, that could be construed as derogatory.

 While this statement may not have been uttered with any malicious intent, it could be deemed disrespectful as well as offensive to the Catholic community.

It is expected that a reputed actor like Hrithik Roshan would be careful in his remarks and be sensitive to the feelings of the community


+ Oswald Cardinal Gracias

   Archbishop of Bombay.
