In a fast moving city like Mumbai, gone are the days when people used to hurl abuses/ accusing each other face to face, as they have now found a trendy platform for doing this: twitter. And since the last 24 hours the news that's' trending' is that of Ekta Kapoor and her alleged altercation with a 68-year-old man.
The man's daughter, tweeted, "at first an apology is all that my father is looking for. I don't want newspaper coverage, or any publicity. My tweets may be public, but that's not what I'm looking for. I just want her to apologize". She also added that she was now contemplating legal action and that they would be trying to procure CCTV footage of the incident from the bank.
On behalf of Ekta Kapoor, a statement was issued which stated, "This is to confirm that all sorts of allegations made against our client Ms. Ekta Kapoor are utterly ridiculous. To bring clarity to the matter, Ekta Kapoor was on her phone on a street in 7 Bungalows when an elderly gentleman came and pushed her. Having questioned him on why he did such a thing, the gentleman immediately retorted in a rude and abusive manner. Post this his daughter has gone on an overdrive with her tweets regarding this episode, all of which hold no truth. Such behavior is uncalled for, Ekta has maintained her silence given that he is a senior citizen, but such uncouth behavior and desperate plea for publicity are unappreciated."
