Om Puri doesn’t think our politicians are naalayak and ganwaar anymore.

The 60-year-old actor, who is facing a privilege motion in Parliament over use of derogatory language against politicians at his recent pro-Anna speech at the Ramlila Maidan, on Sunday apologised for his choice of words describing parliamentarians.

Puri said he should have used “appropriate language,” and said the remarks were made in the “heat of the moment”.

He however denied that he had made the caustic comments in an inebriated state.
