The actress was accused by fellow Bollywood star Poonam Pandey of making an unfair judgement based on her personal life.
Pandey tweeted at her: "Just cause you chose all the losers in your life, doesn't mean all men are lukhas. People who say 'all men are losers' haven't really met a man yet.
"If today's "guys are losers," will you settle with a filthy, old rich man? tsk tsk. For an actor who is "unsatisfied" with her career after a decade in Bollywood, clearly, Who is the "loser" here?
"If you have been "mothering" your men, seriously, I got two words for you. Grow up!"
Basu responded to her followers: "Hey guys!Thank u fr liking the article! Bt seriously I did nt want 2 generalise ppl at all!Some random experiences of my life,thts it!
"This is for all men! I love men! I have max number of male friends! It's sad that I have to justify this! It was not a generalised statement!"
The Race 2 star has been romantically linked with Rana Daggubati and Shahid Kapoor.
She split up with John Abraham, when he decided against getting married after ten years of dating.
Last week, Basu described herself as the industry "poster girl" for being single.
