In response to the whole controversy Aseem Bajaj, said ‘ We don’t know the source of the leak “,  in addition to this he said ” The film is in public domain ( Netflix) since it was released in France and a few other countries. We were contemplating legal action but realized that we can’t do anything about it because we don’t know who to name in the complaint.But, this is definitely not a publicity gimmick.If we are getting mileage out of it, good for us. In a way, it’s helping creating awareness about the film ” according to a report by mid-day. No other actor has yet made a statement about this incident.

In spite of all the statements only on the leak of the nude scene, some have supported the movie also. The movie revolves around the life of four women, Radhika Apte ( Lajjo ), Tannishtha Chatterjee ( Rani ), Lehar Khan ( Janki ) and Surveen Chawla ( Bijli ), and how all of them fight against the old-age tradition. All of them have their own personal issues which they share with each other.
