XXX 2 controversy: Ekta Kapoor deletes sex scene, slams cyberbullying by online trolls

We have already deleted the scene that is being spoken about, so the action has been taken from our side. We fully apologise for any sentiment that is hurt unintentionally, Ekta Kapoor has said in her statement.

After receiving flak for a controversial sex scene in her erotic web series XXX 2, streaming on OTT platform Alt Balaji, producer Ekta Kapoor has confirmed that the team has deleted the scene in question. Moreover, she has apologised for hurting any sentiments unintentionally saying that their organization is “deeply respectful” of the Indian Army.

“As an individual and as an organization, we are deeply respectful towards the Indian Army. Their contribution to our well being and security is immense. We have already deleted the scene that is being spoken about, so the action has been taken from our side. We fully apologise for any sentiment that is hurt unintentionally. What we don’t appreciate is the bullying and the rape threats by the trolls,” the producer said in a statement.

However, the producer has slammed cyberbullies for abusing, issuing rape threats to her and her mother Shobha Kapoor on social media after her show got embroiled in a controversy. A video of the producer lashing out at a social media troll had surfaced online.
