Bangalore: We have seen comments becoming disastrous and controversial several times in public sphere. Words can bring fame to the public figures at the same time it can spoil their image completely. The recent controversy of Prashant Bhushan calling PM 'Shikhandi' is an example to one of these, though Bhushan denied the statement later.



Many have faced the bitterness of unnecessary comments. Though the comments were sometimes hilarious or sarcastic, the famous ones struggled to calm down the fire aroused around those silly comments.  Here we list some of the most celebrated comments that would have been better unsaid by the famous people based on the report by Forbes.



1. “Ek hi maara [he landed just one slap]?”



Hazare said to a group of journalists at Ralegan Siddhi when he learned about the attack on Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar “Ek hi maara [he landed just one slap]?” The comment was followed by a big laugh among the audience but Anna’s attitude of being sympathetic to the attacker who assaulted the Union minister brought huge criticisms on him. The leaders all around India reacted to Anna’s ridiculous attitude.



 Anna Hazare had to make a good number of justifications to come out of this issue. When Hazare realized the impact of comment he said, “He (the attacker) may be very angry. This is not good. Anger is not good. Our Constitution does not tell us to be violent with anyone.”



He further justified, “I was addressing a daily gathering of people when someone sent me a note informing about the attack. I wanted to know whether it was just a slap or there was some other kind of violence,” as First Post reported. When the defenses went futile Hazare had to apologize for the silly comment that he made before the public.
