The post definitely didn't go well with the organisers of the award. The official handle of DPIFF called out Mahira in a statement issued by them. The organisers sent her a notice to take down all the misleading PR activities done by her and her team. Not just that but they also asked her to issue a written apology within 48 hours.

While the written apology didn't make its way to social media, what Mahira instead posted was a long clarification of what actually happened, narrating her side of the story. Mahira wrote, " Okay so the world has been talking about it since last night, here is my reply which is 100 per cent true and honest."

"Charges made against me for receiving and forging the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival 2020 is untrue and totally uncalled for...My manager, Mr Abhinav Tanwar was informed by Mr Mehta that we will be gratified at the event with the title of Most Fashionable Bigg boss 13 Contestant. At the event, the team of Bigg Boss 13 was called on stage and gratified with a token of appreciation. On questioning about my solo award by my Manager to Mr Mehta, he handed over the award to my manager stating that I cannot be called on stage owing to the huge hue and rush on stage."

Now, that is what we called real-life soap opera my friends. She further added that she doesn't require any PR gimmick after her successful stint in the most loved season of the reality show. The actress also explained how she put up a story, just to express her 'love and gratitude'.

Well, the sooner we know the truth, the better it is going to be for both the actress and the reputation of the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Awards.
