New Delhi: After two women charged actor-director of misbehaving with them, the filmmaker has tendered an apology on micro-blogging site Twitter . 
Responding to the allegation, which comes in the wake of the Tanushree Dutta-controversy that continues to make headlines, Rajat Kapoor said,''all my life I have tried to be a decent man, to do the right thing. If however, I have slipped and through my actions or words caused pain or hurt or trauma to absolutely anybody, please accept my apology. I am sorry from the bottom of my heart- and sad that I was the cause of this hurt to another human being. If there is one thing more important to me than even my work, it is to be a good human being. And I have tried to be that person. And now, I will try harder.''
 
The first alleged incident took place in 2007 wherein the journalist was conducting a telephonic interview with Rajat Kapoor during which he drifted from the topic and asked her questions about her sexual nature. This made her very uncomfortable. 
 
The second woman has alleged that Rajat would call her from actor Saurabh Shukla's phone and tell her that he wanted to shoot a film with her at an empty house. She alleged that Saurabh Shukla knew about this.(UNI)
