Ekta Kapoor Issues An Apology To The Indian Army After Series XXX Uncensored Controversy; Says ‘Would've Cut The Scene If I'd Seen Episode’
Producer Ekta Kapoor and her ALT Balaji web series XXX uncensored recently got mired in a controversy which managed to create a storm on social media against her. It all began when two police complaints were lodged against Kapoor for humiliating and disrespecting the Indian Army through a scene in the episode of her web series. Amidst the ALT Balaji web series XXX Uncensored controversy, producer Ekta Kapoor issues an apology to the Indian army and mentioned how she would cut the scene if she watched the episode.

The official statement released by XXX Uncensored producer Ekta Kapoor read, “I’d like to reiterate the fact that as a responsible and law-abiding citizen, I have the highest regard for the Indian army. They not only risk their lives at the frontier towards protecting us but are also one of the most-disciplined and honourable organizations in the country. We, at ALTBalaji, have the deepest regard for our valiant soldiers and truly respect them and their families. I would once again make it loud and clear that we offer a sincere and unconditional apology to the army and army wives if we have unintentionally hurt their sentiments.”

As Ekta Kapoor apologised to the Indian Army and their families, the producer mentioned how her team had no intentions of hurting the sentiments. Kapoor’s statement taking full ownership of the mishap continued, “Taking full ownership of the situation, we do agree that the objectionable scene shown in the episode was a slip at our end. We say that despite the show, that came out in March, not being produced by us. That said, with me holding a 30% stake in ALTBalaji, I would have certainly cut the scene had I seen the episode. We took action at the very earliest when this oversight was brought to our notice. Despite the first FIR lodged being dismissed by the police, we were proactive in our part and removed the content to not hurt any sentiments.” The producer mentioned how the objectionable scene was a slip from her team’s end and mentioned that she would have cut the scene, that she had watched the episode.


For the unversed, Ekta Kapoor was booked on the charges of spreading obscenity. The scene from the episode of Kapoor’s series featured an army officer’s wife having an affair with a man in his absence. While this was not enough, in the scene, the Army uniform was also torn, which is regarded as an insult to the armed forces and the military personnel fighting valiantly on the borders.
