Eros Now apologises after Navratri post causes outrage
Eros Now has issued an apology after a post featuring Katrina Kaif about the ongoing festival Navratri caused a controversy.

The full statement revealed, "It is not, and it has never been, our intention to hurt anyone's emotions. We have deleted the concerned posts and we apologise for having offended anybody's sentiments."
 
The creative is part of a Navratri campaign the OTT platform is running on social media.
