Bipasha Basu has been accused of being unprofessional by the organisers of a UK-based fashion show, a charge the actor has denied.

Basu, who is currently in London with husband Karan Singh Grover, was to walk as the showstopper for the fashion show but she allegedly did not honour the commitment.

According to the talent scout of the show, Ronita Sharma Rekhi’s Facebook post, the actress “wanted her husband to fly out to London with her and wanted their stay be extended to five nights, which was originally for three nights only.”

Ronita, without mentioning Bipasha’s name in her post, further claimed that the actress asked the organisers to pay for their entire stay otherwise “she will not do our event so now this is like a gun point situation.”

Ronita claims the actress eventually did not turn up for the show.

However, taking to Twitter, Bipasha, 38, rubbished Ronita’s claims and said, “a con woman talking utter rubbish about my work ethics.”

In another post the actress wrote, “15 years you don’t last any business being unprofessional. You last because you are clear and particular and have self respect.”

Bipasha’s spokesperson has always issued a statement: Bipasha has always had a spotless reputation for more than 15 years in the industry and has been a thorough professional. Unfortunately, the organisers didn’t honour their commitment as promised in terms of hospitality and logistics, on landing Bipasha had to book her own hotel stay. What happened was completely unprofessional on the organisers part.

She also shared a picture on Instagram which read-- “less you respond (to) the negative people, the more peaceful your life will become.”
