Bigg Boss 13 former contestant Mahira Sharma completely took us by surprise when she was awarded as the Most Fashionable Contestant of BB13 title at Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2020. This not only impressed us but also left Mahira on cloud nine who then took to her Instagram stories and shared an image of the trophy presented to her at the award function. As she was been showered with praises for her win, today, we have learned that the award is forged. Yes, you read that right.
Just some time back, DPIFF officials have released a statement on Mahira for sharing the fraudulent certificate on her social media handles while calling Sharma a fraud. While sharing the statement on their handle, they wrote, “DPIFF OFFICIAL STATEMENT Our official statement on @officialmahirasharma for forging the prestigious certificate of Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2020.”
The statement read, “This certificate of appreciation has not been issued by any team member of DPIFF or the associates involved in the event and hence is considered to be forged. This fraudulent certificate has clearly violated the DPIFF’s IP based assets and the brand collaterals as they have been used without the consent of the organization to create this accolade.”
It also mentioned that DPIFF’s team has issued an Intimation letter of such act to Mahira Sharma asking to take down all the misleading PR activities done by her and her team and have asked her to share a written public apology to the bran within the next 48 hours. Failing to do so will result in legal proceedings against her and all the others involved in the preparation of such purported story and certificate. Well, now that an official statement is released we have to wait and watch what Mahira will have to say about this.
