When Arnab Goswami of Times Now got in touch with Kashyap, the producer couldn't help but laugh at the accusations.

"I don't think it's even worth a reaction, what do I say to that man who in his defence all he can do is accuse. He knows his lies and methods have been caught so obviously what will he say? It's the defence of the weak, the defence of the guilty " Kashyap said.
