A video of producer Boney Kapoor reportedly touching actress Urvashi Rautela, rather “inappropriately”, has been doing the rounds on the internet. The Grand Masti actress herself took to her Twitter handle to call out and slam the reportage.
Presumably one of the India's 'SUPREME' newspaper and this is 'NEWS'!!??— URVASHI RAUTELA (@UrvashiRautela) April 1, 2019
Please dont talk about GIRL POWER or WOMEN’S LIBERATION when YOU don't know how to RESPECT/HONOUR GIRLS. pic.twitter.com/QK2Xc2tuSB
“Presumably one of the India's 'SUPREME' newspaper and this is 'NEWS'!!?? Please don’t talk about GIRL POWER or WOMEN’S LIBERATION when YOU don't know how to RESPECT/HONOUR GIRLS”, Urvashi tweeted.
The video that is currently going viral on the internet, is from the wedding reception bash of producer Jayantilal Gada's son Aksshay Gada which took place on March 31 in Mumbai. Besides, Boney Kapoor and Urvashi Rautela, the party was attended by several Bollywood celebrities, including director Kabir Khan and wife Mini Mathur, Poonam Dhillon and Padmini Kolhapure, filmmaker Subhash Ghai, actors Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda, Shreyas Talpade and Aftab Shivdasani.

Before heading towards the reception, guests posed for the paparazzi at the entryway. In the video, Boney Kapoor can be seen striking a pose for the cameras along with Urvashi Rautela. However, before heading off to the celebrations area, the two exchanged a few words and the producer is seen patting the actress. The video went viral on social media and many slammed Boney for his alleged action.
Urvashi Rautela and Boney Kapoor
Here’s what Twitterati had to say about the act.
Ahh Dear @UrvashiRautela ma'am,— Mah (@mahifanboy) April 2, 2019
You have done very wrong instead of criticising & complaining you are ignoring it. Very bad. You are setting very bad example by this to all the girl and discouraging them and also misleading them.
Very shameful act https://t.co/XEabqpcdND
If you had slapped Boney right there I would have applauded you. Where is your anger towards him? Instead your anger is towards news channel for pointing this out. You think it's not a big deal for him touching you inappropriately ? If that's the case then I lost respect for you.— Niamat Far (@M_far89) April 1, 2019
He shud think too as his daughter too is in same industry what happens when someone touch her too.— A@d¡£ (@adil_imerc) April 1, 2019
Totally agree. If it had been any other common man, she would have slapped him by now, but clearly not the same reaction towards such a grand producer.— Abhishek Pandey (@iPandeyAbhishek) April 2, 2019
However, as it turns out, Urvashi took it upon herself to clear the air about the alleged misbehaviour, blaming it on an over-zealous media. Boney Kapoor hasn't responded to the controversy.
On the work front, Urvashi Rautela will next be seen in Pagalpanti being helmed by Anees Bazmee. The movie will also star Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Ileana D’Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda and Pulkit Samrat in prominent roles.
