Says an eye-witness, "Soha and Kunal came in holding hands and took up seats in the last row. Half an hour after half the lights dimmed, the couple began getting cosy with each other, distracting people sitting around them. There was also some giggles emanating from near them, and this made people sitting ahead of them, turn around to see what the commotion was about." According to the eye-witness, during the interval, hostess Arpita requested the couple to take it down a notch, as people were getting disturbed.
But once the show began, the lovers went back to their antics. When asked about the incident, Arpita showed more interest in enquiring about the various ways to get the article dropped. Then she said, "Let me talk to Soha and Kunal and let them know." Finally, she decided to give a clarification, "I was sitting with Soha and Kunal on the last row. No such incident took place at my trial. They both come from very respectable families and their privacy should be maintained as such. Such articles would cause a discomfort in our friendship."
Soha Ali Khan says, "I completely and vehemently deny it. It's a fabricated story. I'm a single professional and coming from the kind of family I do, I would never conduct myself in a public place like this. There was absolutely no physical interaction between Kunal and me. In fact, a friend of mine, an entertainment lawyer, was sitting on my left. This kind of behaviour just doesn't go with my name or my family." Kunal Khemu remained unavailable for comment.
