Tiger, Disha booked in Mumbai; Ayesha Shroff comes to their defence
Actors Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani have been booked by the Mumbai police for allegedly violating the pandemic norms by roaming at a public place without a valid reason. According to reports, they were seen in Bandra in the evening, hours after the 2pm deadline.
Mumbai Police took the usual quirky route to confirm the development on Twitter.
“In the ongoing ‘War’ against the virus, going ‘Malang’ on the streets of Bandra cost dearly to two actors who have been booked under sections 188, 34 IPC by Bandra Pstn. We request all Mumbaikars to avoid unnecessary ‘Heropanti’...” read the post.
Shroff’s mother Ayesha denied the reports by commenting on an Instagram post by photographer, Viral Bhayani. She said they’d stepped out to buy some essentials. The post is now deleted.
She wrote: “...please get your facts right... instead of bringing people down how come no one writes about the free meals he’s providing to front line workers... don’t judge till you know.” We reached out to the actors for a comment but got no official response till the time the story went in print.
Ayesha Shroff also took to Twitter to thank Tiger’s fans. She wrote: “Big thank you to all Tigerians and supporters who have realised the game being played!!!”
