Kapoor had moved the High Court stating that she did not have any knowledge of the contents of the episode because she is not the producer or the director and her name is not reflected in the credits for the episode.

However, the Court had rejected the argument and said that she is “presumed to have knowledge” about the contents of the episode.

Kapoor had earlier issued an apology for ‘unintentionally hurting the sentiments’ and deleted the particular scene from the series.

“As an individual and as an organisation, we are deeply respectful towards the Indian Army. Their contribution to our well being and security is immense. We have already deleted the scene that is being spoken about, so the action has been taken from our side. We fully apologise for any sentiment that is hurt unintentionally. What we don’t appreciate is the bullying and the rape threats by the trolls,” Ekta said in a statement.
