'It was awkward for Boney Kapoor': Urvashi Rautela on viral video of filmmaker's alleged misconduct
Earlier in the year, pictures of Urvashi Rautela and Boney Kapoor posing for the paparazzi together at the wedding reception of producer Jayantilal Gada's son Aksshay Gada went crazy viral. But what irked netizens the most was one particular video, in which Boney Kapoor and Urvashi Rautela can be seen exiting the photo-op area together, when the veteran filmmaker was accused of "inappropriately touching" the actress. While Urvashi came out in defence of Boney Kapoor by tweeting: "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?", the actress hasn't spoken much about the issue since. Well, that is up until now.
In a recent interview, when Urvashi was asked about the whole controversy, she stated, "It was blown out of proportion. It was nothing like that. The video went viral overnight. But there was nothing like that. We were supposed to work on a project. I was supposed to be part of a film, which he is doing with superstar Ajith... which I couldn't do because of my movie dates. So, I knew him already. Because I couldn't do a movie with him doesn't mean I don't have a relationship with him."

On being quizzed about the incident, Urvashi said, "I had just entered the party and he was also there and the person who was getting married was also there. We were just clicking pictures and I don't know... the photography or the angle or the way they captured it... it was so weird."
She added, "My phone was ringing non-stop for like seven days because it became such a big thing. It was awkward for him."
