Kapoor was secretly screened by a television channel while he was allegedly asking for sexual favours from a journalist posing as an aspiring actress and alleging that the "casting couch" was a common practice in Bollywood.
Taking strong reaction to his allegations, the Film and TV Producers' Guild of India today dubbed Kapoor's statements as "slanderous, mischievous and unsubstantiated". It also advised members not to engage Kapoor in any of their projects.
The Guild further demanded a public apology from Kapoor for the utterances he made during the sting operation against Bollywood personalities including Subhash Ghai and the late Yash Johar that they were indulging in casting-couch.
Several BJP workers, including women wing of the party, led by Shaina NC, staged a demonstration in front of the actor's suburban residence. The angry workers shouted slogans and threw shoes and eggs on the posters of the actor.
Shanti Kumar Jain, editor of local daily 'Pol Khol' also urged police to book the actor under relevant laws for his "indecent behaviour". However, police were yet act on this.
Meanwhile, director Subhash Ghai and actress Preity Zinta, whom the actor had named in the casting couch game, came down heavily on Kapoor for his utterances.
