Free Press Journal 2018-10-08 13:00:25

Recently, a female journalist has come out with a shocker and exposed actor-director Rajat Kapoor of engaging in sexual misconduct. But now, Kapoor has finally issued his apology over the matter.

Apparently, a Twitter user had shared a post recently where two women had accused the actor of misconduct. One of them was a journalist and she stated that while interviewing the actor via a telephonic interview, he misbehaved through the phone and asked her questions such as ‘are you as sexy as you sound’ and asked about her body measurements. Shockingly, another woman also narrated an incident where the actor would not stop calling her for a film’s shoot and asked her if she knew an empty house. He wanted to shoot for a film with her in an empty house.

Addressing the allegations, Rajat Kapoor tweeted, “All my life I have tried to be a decent man, to do the right thing. If however, I have slipped and through my actions or words caused pain or hurt or trauma to absolutely anybody, please accept my apology.”

He added, “I am sorry from the bottom of my heart- and sad that I was the cause of this hurt to another human being. If there is one thing more important to me than even my work, it is to be a good human being. And I have tried to be that person. And now, I will try harder.”

Earlier, Queen Director Vikas Bahl was also accused by an employee of his ex-production house. She reportedly claimed that Vikas asked her for sexual favours and kept sexually abusing her for the last one and half years. Post the incident, his partners Madhu Mantena, Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane have severed ties with Bahl.
