Disha Patani Tiger Shroff Booked: Ayesha Shroff’s Response
Mumbai police reported that the actors were not arrested at the time because Section 188 is a bailable section. However, Tiger Shroff’s mother, Ayesha Shroff took to Instagram to defend her son after the news of FIR being filed surfaced online.
Ayesha Shroff claimed that her son and Patani were heading home and the police were simply checking their Aadhar cards. She said that media outlets should get their facts right before spreading news like this.
Further, Ayesha pointed out how her son has been helping people out during the pandemic and no one talks about it. “How come no one writes about the free meals he’s providing to front-line workers!!” she wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post.
Ayesha emphasized how no one is interested in roaming around during the pandemic. But the duo had also been caught the day before. The FIR case happened a day after Shroff and Patani were caught when they were reportedly out for a car ride on June 2.
Mumbai Police’s Response
The official handle of the Mumbai Police cleared various allegations using a creative tweet. They posted a tweet regarding the duo being booked without naming them. In a creative spin, the police mentioned the films they starred in instead of their names.
Check out their creative tweet below.
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’ which can compromise on safety against #COVID19
