Basu hit out at the media saying that she had never said 'all door were closed on me and that people encouraged me to get into prostitution.'

Speaking about the day when she was arrested she says 'I hadn't been called to Hyderabad by any agent for commercial sex. I had gone there to attend an awards ceremony. Call it fate or whatever, I missed my flight back in the morning.'

"My air ticket and stay were done by the organisers of the award function. I still have the ticket, I've been told that the agent has been arrested. The case is being investigated, I am a victim in the whole situation. There was a raid, I am not denying the incident but the facts are not what they've been made out to be," she said.

Focussing on her future plans she says that she would like to focus on her documentary and that she would continue acting.
