Urvashi Rautela was in news earlier this year for a video with Boney Kapoor which was blown out of proportion. The video was of the photo-op event in which Urvashi was seen posing with Boney Kapoor at the wedding reception of producer Jayantilal Gada’s son Aksshay Gada.
The video went viral on social media, with netizens discussing how the filmmaker has touched the actress ‘inappropriately’. In the video, we saw Boney and Urvashi having a hearty laugh as they exchange a convo. When they leave, Boney is seen patting Urvashi which turned into a controversy.
Urvashi before this has also clarified about the same saying Boney is a gentleman. But she has more to say about the same. In an interview to 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 a movie with him, that doesn’t mean I don’t have a relationship with him.”
She also said, “So, it was a great gesture. I was entering the party, he was also there and the person who was getting married was also there. So we were just clicking pictures. 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.”
When this incident happened, she took to her social media accounts and posted, “I felt appalled and beyond shocked this morning when I saw social media flooded with trolls of me in a video with respected sir. 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.”
