Ekta Kapoor reacts to receiving rape threats for a controversial scene in her show, says 'It means sex is bad but rape is okay

Ekta Kapoor has been in the headlines once again. The owner of Balaji Tele-productions got backlash for one of the scenes involving an army man in her show XXX: Uncensored. After an Ex-Bigg Boss contestant Hindustani Bhau aka Vikas Phatak filed a complaint against the producer for the alleged scene, the troll brigade on the internet started abusing the actress and her mother Shobha Kapoor. Even after the scene has been removed, they want Ekta to apologise.
 
Opening up about the same in an interview with Shobha De, Ekta said, "This gentleman who thinks that he’s the ‘patriot of the year’ decided to come out there, abuse my mother and me. And now, he has openly put a rape threat on a social platform. This is now no longer about the army or sexual content because the idea of this is ‘rape a girl, rape her son, rape her 71-year-old mother’ for making sexual content. It means sex is bad but rape is okay.”
 
Adding further, " Now I have decided to take the route of standing up to this cyberbullying”. She said, “If they can decide to take my nudes out, put out my nudes on the net, call me r****, tomorrow, they can do this to any girl. you want to rub my nose on the ground? Well, you are not getting a chance."
 
She also said that had an army institution expressed their dissent over the issue, she would have apologised but she won't bow down to cyberbullying. "As an individual and as an organisation, we are deeply respectful towards the Indian Army. Their contribution to our well-being and security is immense. Yes, we shall readily tender an unconditional apology if such a demand comes from any bona fide army institution. But we won’t bow down to uncivilised cyberbullying and rape threats by random elements."
