So much has been talked and written about the alleged vulgar telephonic conversation between politician Amar Singh and Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu. After keeping silent for a while, Amar Singh has broken the silence. He said in an exclusive interview to the Times of India that the voice in the infamous tape is not Bipasha"s.
The politician said that the conversation was between him and his male friend and not with the actress. “I am not denying it is my voice – but that is not how I would speak to a lady. I have spoken that line to a naughty male friend of mine – some bitchy men to men talk. It is along the lines of "I have become old, I am not interested in girls" conversation. I'd like to make clear that it is not Bipasha," he said in the interview.
He refused to reveal the name of the person with whom he was speaking to but said that he is a celebrity. “I will not tell you with whom I was talking, but he is also a celebrity, he is also a known person. So yes, it is my voice, and I am not embarrassed to accept that. I know a film actor – a faded star – was very hostile towards me, spreading canards about Bipasha and me at that point of time."
Amar Singh went on to say that he has seen the actress only twice and hasn"t interacted with her. He claimed that the alleged audio tape is a fabricated and offered apology to the pain caused to her. “I'll tell you. I studied it. First of all, my unqualified apology to Bipasha. I am born and brought up in Bengal. By heart, I am a Bengali," he said, adding, “My 2005-2006 24 hours, 365 days' taped telephone conversations can be checked, there is not a single conversation between me and Bipasha."
Bipasha had earlier denied having any conversation with Amar Singh. She even threw a challenge to the public to prove that it"s her. She wrote on her Twitter page, “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."
