To this he replied, "The show talks to men that women are not an object of your desire, she is a person. If a woman enjoys sex, it doesn't mean that she is a slut."

The actor who has been at the receiving end for bullying Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur on social media, also clarified at the event that he was not aware about the issue as well as about the threats to her.

He was quoted saying, "I didn't know who this girl was.. I saw a tweet by Sehwag (former cricketer Virender Sehwag) and I often laugh at his jokes. He makes pretty funny jokes about all kinds of things. And I just laughed at it and left it. I didn't see the connotation in it then I got some messages, and that some prominent journalists are making comments on it, conversing on it.  went back to Twitter, and quickly went on to internet and saw what was happening on it. I could put two and two together and I immediately said that don't politicise this poor girl's point of view. And then those two words were taken (out of context), for 'poor' they said that you are misogynist and 'girl' they said you are a sexist. I said 'Hey if it was a boy, I would have said the same thing'."

He further added, "Let me clarify that I was not aware of any threats to her at all, and when I did become aware of it I immediately issued a statement and clarified, saying that it was not directed to her at all. Violence is wrong, and violence against women is a heinous crime. The traitors should be brought to justice and made an example of in a very severe way so that doesn't happen again. I don't think that has happened, what the authorities are doing. By that time the narrative was set and I was labelled and put in a box".

Randeep even made a valid point to make about faceless trolling and said, "They should look into it very seriously because it is becoming a bigger issue and it is getting out of hand day by day. I have got brickbats from this side and from that side. I am inviting them. Maybe I can sit with them and have a conversation with them and try and find a solution."
