The organiser of a fashion event in the UK is planning to go one step further with her public spat with Bipasha Basu.
According to Mid-Day, Ronita Sharma Rekhi is planning to hold a press conference after a bitter row with Basu over certain demands that were made allegedly. Apparently, the actress was expected to walk the ramp as the showstopper but allegedly decided against it. Without naming each other, Basu and Rekhi, took to social media to blast each other’s work ethics.
Rekhi told the publication, “If she decided to not do the show, she should have the dignity to take the next flight back home. I have cancelled her return ticket. We’ve borne too many losses because of her. No more paying for her fun.”
She added, “I am going to call a press conference and expose her if needed. I’ve requested the hotel to source CCTV footage to show what a fit she threw. I have witnesses to substantiate my claims. She will have to apologise for her behaviour. I am not scared.”
Meanwhile, a source close to the actress told the publication, “When Bipasha and Karan landed, there was no car to receive them. The car landed two hours later. They hadn’t even booked a hotel for her. Since it was a hospitality deal, Bipasha was going to stay longer, even after the show was over. She’d to make an emergency call to the hotel which she had booked for after the show, with her personal money and arranged her stay over there for the entire trip. She will be staying in London as per their original plan and she is using her own money for that. The organisers can claim what they want to. The relevant information is all on email.”
A statement from Basu’s camp said, “She is a thorough professional. Unfortunately, the organisers didn’t honour their commitment in terms of hospitality and logistics. On landing, Bipasha had to book a hotel on her own. What happened was completely unprofessional on the organisers’ part.”
