Vishal Dadlani had created a furore on social media with his controversial comment on Jain monk Tarun Sagar, with the spiritual leader's followers baying for his blood. The singer-musician had apologised to the monk on social media, but fearing any untoward action from the followers, Dadlani decided to tender a personal apology.

The noted singer musician met the Jain monk at his ashram in Chandigarh and personally apologised to him. 

"Guruji accepted my apology, he has forgiven me and I think we've also developed a bond of friendship," the singer-composer told reporters after the meeting. Before apologising personally, Dadlani had also written an open letter to the monk and the Jain community.

"As a concerned Indian, I should have been especially careful to be sensitive to the sentiments of followers of Muni Tarun Sagar ji. Especially after receiving his forgiveness, I realise what a magnanimous and generous heart he has, and what strength lies within the gentleness of the Jain people," Dadlani wrote in his letter.
