Urvashi Rautela defends Boney Kapoor over viral video of inappropriate touching
New Delhi : A video from a function showcasing Boney Kapoor touching Urvashi Rautela 'inappropriately' had gone viral on the social media. While, many people were blasting the man, Urvashi came to his rescue and cleared that there is nothing like what is seen in the viral video.
Urvashi has said that the situation was blown out of proportion and that she thought that it was 'a great gesture'.
Speaking to a entertainment portal Bollywood Hungama, she said, "It was blown out of proportion. Everywhere, the video went viral overnight. But there was nothing like that. I was supposed to work on a film with superstar Ajith. It was a Tamil film which I couldn't do because of my movie dates. So I knew him already. But because I couldn't do movie with him, that doesn't mean I don't have a relationship with him."
The video was shot during Jayantilal Gada's son Aksshay Gada's wedding in April. Moments after Urvashi learned that the video is getting viral for all the wrong reasons, she clarified on Twitter, "I felt appalled and beyond shocked this morning when i saw social media flooded with trolls of me in a video with respected Boney Kapoor sir. He is a true gentleman and it makes me feel extremely unhappy and miserable because the social sites/ media don't even think twice before putting up things or destroying anyone's reputation. I request all to stop trolling. I honestly respect Boney Kapoor sir and stand by him and his dignity."
She told Bollywood Hungama, "So, it was a great gesture. I was entering at the party, he was also there and the person who was getting married was also there. So we were just clicking picture. And I don't know if the photography or the angle, the way they captured, it was so weird. So then it went to become such a big thing. My phone was ringing non-stop for 7 days. So I think it was blown out of proportion."
