Around 9 to 10 years ago, Bipasha Basu and Amar Singh's leaked audio became viral, and this created quite a stir
This throwback story was one of the most scandalous tales of Bollywood. There was a time when Bipasha Basu was one of the top actresses and this controversy created quite a stir.
We are talking about Bipasha and Amar Singh's alleged telephonic conversation, which became viral overnight. The conversation is explicit with Singh mentioning that ‘age matters between the legs’, in reply to Bipasha’s comment on his age.
However, Bipasha later reacted to the alleged taped conversation and said she can "openly challenge" anyone to prove that she is the one in the tape.
"Pls request u all to go n hear d conversation 1st n then if u still think it's me, I openly challenge anyone to prove it is me!" Bipasha had posted on her Twitter page back then.
Bipasha, who was bothered with the media coverage, said, "A celeb takes beatings of all kinds but if my dignity is challenged, I am ready to take this issue up in a stronger manner! There is a limit to making up stories at the cost of a celeb! Sensationalising ridiculous and untrue stories is not ethical at all."
On the other hand, Samajwadi party leader Amar Singh had admitted that the voice in the leaked tapes was his but the lady on the other end was not Bipasha. In an interview with ETimes, Singh said, "I am not someone who runs away from relationships of any nature. They are not something to be ashamed of, or embarrassed about. But here, there is nothing to deny. My 2005-2006 24 hours, 365 days' taped telephone conversations can be checked, there is not a single conversation between me and Bipasha. And thank God it is not there. The Bipasha Basu of 2006 phoning somebody would be very flattering for anyone, but I did not get that opportunity of feeling flattered. And any lady is unlikely to talk like that... ladies rarely propose. It is the habit and prerogative of men to propose, and we are also often disposed of. A lady will not chase Amar Singh!"
He also added, "I am not denying it is my voice – but that is not how I would speak to a lady. I have become old, I am not interested in girls' conversation. I'd like to make it clear that it is not Bipasha."
