Aaj Tak anchor Anjana Om Kashyap apologises

Aaj Tak anchor Anjana Om Kashyap has issued a public apology after a video of her calling Aditya Thackeray ‘Shiv Sena’s Rahul Gandhi’ went viral. Kashyap was heard saying live on air, “He (Aditya Thackeray) will turn out to be Shiv Sena’s Rahul Gandhi. Take it in writing.”

Kashyap made the comments without realising that it was being broadcast live on TV. The young Thackeray was a guest on a conclave organised by the India Today Group, Aaj Tak’s parent organisation, in Mumbai. Kashyap made the controversial comments after cutting live to the event.

No sooner did the video go on air, several journalists took to Twitter to share the controversial line.
Now Anjana Om Kashyap writes on Twitter- My remark on Aditya Thackeray which is being spread with malice was out of lapse of judgement. I regret it. This, by no means, reflects the views of the channel or the network.
