Nawazuddin Siddiqui finally broke his silence over Chitrangada Singh’s accusation against their Babumoshai Bandookbaaz director Kushan Nandy, saying there was nothing which was unacceptable about the shot.

The actor was quoted as saying, “We did a normal scene. There was nothing unacceptable about what we shot. The incident being described did not happen. Kushan is a decent soft-spoken person. He’s a gentleman, incapable of crass behaviour.”

Adding to this, Kushan said, “Those who know me will know I never use filthy words like she has accused me of using. I don’t know people who use language like that. This is character assassination.”

For the uninitiated, Chitrangada walked out of the movie set claiming the director persuaded her to do an unbecoming love-making scene with Nawaz, urging her on with language that was objectionable.

Chitrangada added that Kushan’s crass behaviour made her feel even more awkward as she was wearing only a petticoat.
