The Hush Post: A woman journalist has accused Rajat Kapoor of sexually indecent behaviour on telephone way back in 2007.

A woman journalist said that during a telephonic interview with Rajat Kapoor in 2007, he asked her inappropriate questions. The questions were “Are you as sexy as you sound?” and even asked her about her body statistics.

Rajat Kapoor responded to allegations of sexual harassment saying if he has “slipped and through actions or words” he would like to apologise “from the bottom of my heart.”rajat kapoor

Journalist Sandhya Menon shared screenshots of her conversation with the two women. The two women claimed that Kapoor harassed them on phone.

Another victim, who has worked in the past as an assistant director, said that Kapoor called her many times saying he wants to shoot a film with her in an “empty house”.

The incident reportedly happened more than 10 years ago. Responding to it, 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.”

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.
