Mumbai, May 12: Bollywood actor Bipasha Basu has denied that the voice in the Amar Singh tape does not belong to her, nor had she any such conversation with Singh in the recent past.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Bipasha has said that her voice had distinct characteristics and the voice on the tape is completely different.
The statement reads: "I have been besieged with calls from the media seeking my reaction to the publication of the tapes containing the alleged telephone conversation between Mr. Amar Singh and me. I have since heard the clip on the internet.
"I have never had any conversation with Mr. Amar Singh over the phone ever. The voice on the recording is certainly not mine.
"I dare say that my voice has distinct characteristics and the voice on the tape is completely different.
"I am appalled at the unjustifiable conclusion the female voice on the tape is mine merely because the person identified herself as Bipasha. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
"More appalling is the fact that The MiD Day has reportedly published a transcript of the tape in their English daily issue of 12th May 2011 under the heading Age Matters Between The Legs: Amar Singh to Bips without making any effort to verify with me whether the voice in question was mine.
"This is irresponsible, mischievous reporting and is defamatory to say the least", the statement concludes.
