The Power of Indian Culture video posted by Sandeep Maheshwari caused a huge controversy between him and Shwetabh Gangwar. Later Prakhar Gupta was also involved in the controversy.
Watch this video of Varun Mayya (the CEO of the community platform called Scenes) to understand the complete controversy:
Here is Sandeep Maheshwari’s apology post:
“Please accept my heartfelt and sincere apology for whatever I said or did whether knowingly or unknowingly to everyone who was directly or indirectly involved in this controversy. My parents watched the Prakhar’s video in which he’s using a lot of abusive words against me and my mother started crying… she called me and asked… aaj tak kisi ne tumko gaali nahi di… sab acha bolte hai… phir… ye kyun itna ganda bol raha hai tumhare baare mein?”
And I immediately realised my mistake. My fault is that I acted out of anger instead of acting out of kindness and compassion. Zindagi mein pehli baar mujhe aisa lag raha hai ki meri wajah se kisi ka dil dukh raha hai. Please forgive me. And if possible, please delete that video with abusive language because it’s too hard on me, my wife, my kids and my parents.
I don’t have anything else to say. My heart is really aching with pain and my eyes are full of tears… sorry.”
Here is Sandeep Maheshwari’s previous community post in which he warned Prakhar Gupta after he uploaded a video explaining the entire controversy:
“Prakhar, please don’t get so toxic. It will not help you in any way. The whole controversy was started by you. You said something about me on a public platform and in response to that, I said something about you. The problem is that you want to speak whatever you want about others but you cannot tolerate it when it comes back to you. Although I said nothing wrong in that post but I deleted it because was genuinely concerned about your future. But now you are crossing all your limits. The words that you are using in your video are defamatory and derogatory (to say the least).
Will you speak like this to your father or elder brother? Please take my advice as an elder brother. Stop making toxic content. It will ruin your career completely. Just let go of all the hatred and jealousy in your heart.
I just got a message from Shwetabh Gangwar and he clearly mentioned in writing that you are totally lying and manipulating the facts. If I share that message in public, it will expose you completely and you will regret it for the rest of your life. Nobody will trust you. And nobody will pay you a single rupee for your expensive courses. You will not get anything constructive or productive out of this controversy.
Please stop it.
However, if you don’t want to settle this matter and would like to fight a legal battle, just get ready. I am not scared of anyone or anything. I don’t attack anyone but if someone starts attacking me for no reason, I will not sit quietly.
Let the battle begin…”
The fact that Sandeep Maheshwari apologizes to his audience indicates that he is aware of the mistakes he made, and we can expect the controversy to come to a close. We can only hope for the best here.
Update: Sandeep Maheshwari apologizes again in his community post on YouTube.
Here’s his new community post:
“Zindagi mein jab aapse koi bahut badi galti ho jaaye… toh sabse pehle apne poore dil se aur poori imaandari se saamne waale se maafi maango… agar woh maaf na kare toh dobara se apne dil par haath rakh kar… maafi maango… agar woh phir bhi maaf na kare… toh kam se kam khud ko maaf karo… aap insaan ho… aur duniya mein aisa koi insaan nahi… jisse kabhi koi galti na hui ho…Please forgive me… mujhe maaf kar do”
