Ajnala: Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon took to Twitter to react over a case filed against her in a comedy show where the word "Hallelujah" was allegedly interpreted as "hurting religious sentiments". The actress has cleared her stance on the issue by urging people to watch the concerned portion and asserting that no insult to any religion was intended during the show.

I haven't said a word that can be interpreted as an insult to any religion. The three of us (Farah Khan, Bharti Singh and I) never intended to offend anyone, but in case we did, my most sincere apologies to those who were hurt."
