Ex Bigg-Boss 13 contestant Mahira Sharma, who recently got into big trouble after she shared an image of Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Award, clears her side of the story again and wishes to end the discussions on a good note. After sharing a forged certificate that declared her the ‘Most Fashionable Contestant of Bigg Boss 13’, the DPIFF officials accused her of using a fake certificate and demanded an apology from her as the whole incident damaged their reputation. But, it seems like Mahira is in no mood to apologise as she feels that she is not at fault. She has shared a letter addressed to the dignitaries, responding to their assertion that she has deleted her post but is yet to apologise.

Mahira Sharma shared the letter on Instagram addressing to “Respected dignitaries at DPIFF,” Mahira wrote, “No doubt, the certificate given to me was a forged one as mentioned and informed by the official team of DPIFF. I was unaware of this fact while receiving the certificate on the night of 20th February 2020. Also, you mentioned that I deleted the post later. Just to correct, I had mentioned it as my Instagram story and not a post which lasts for 24 hours only. I would not have put any story if I knew that the certificate was a forged one.” Also Read - Paras Chhabra's Cheesy TikTok Video on Long Distance Relationships Makes Fans Take Note Amid COVID-19 Lockdown



“On the point that I have conveniently put the blame on a 3rd party, whereas the so-called 3rd party, Mr Premal Mehta in this case, has himself in person been accepting the fault since the inception. There was a glitch and the situation is to be blamed here and not me. The concerned people have apologized and owned their mistakes, so I don’t know why I am being pushed to apologise for no fault of mine?”, the letter further said.

She concluded the letter saying, “Yes, I definitely faltered in one place where I accepted the certificate off stage, but had I known that the person who invited me and held a AAA All Access badge was not official of DPIFF, I would not have accepted it at the first place. Now that the matter is clear, I would like to return the forged certificate and will take this incident as a learning experience. With all due respect to the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival, as a performer and an artiste, I would love to earn this award in future, only and only by the officials of DPIFF.”



The caption of the post makes it clear that Mahira wants to finish this all on a good note, “Respected DPIFF, Here is my response to your statements. As mentioned by you, we too wish to end it on a good note and I hope this statement of mine will clear the final air@dpiff_official.”
