If you do not apologize to them, then you will not be able to go anywhere. They will put you in jail and you will have no choice but to harm yourself. You can even think of suicide. He said all these things to me. Why did they think that if I do not apologize to Hrithik Roshan, then I will commit suicide? He shouted at me. Angry too.
