Mahira Sharma stirred a big controversy the day she posted Dadasaheb Phalke Awards appreciation certificate for being the Most Fashionable Bigg Boss 13 contestant. The certificate was forged as Dadasaheb officials called out the actress for it and said they never awarded her for anything.
Matter took a turn when Mahira clarified that a third party- Mr Premlal Mehta is the one who handed over the certificate to her. We also spoke to the actress on the issue exclusively, where she made a lot of revelations and also said she will not apologise.
However, around our interview, which was last week, Mahira put out another post on Instagram where she said that she is returning the forged certificate to the authorities and wants to put an end to the matter on a good note. BUT what's surprising is that, just like last time, Mahira deleted this post too instantly. We managed to get a grab of it just in time. Take a look:
The matter of the post read as below:
"Respected dignitaries at DPIFF,
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 the fact while receiving the certificate on the night of 20th February 2020.
However, it would be wrong to say that I have conveniently put the blame on a 3rd party, whereas the 3rd party,purplefox media 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 ?
Yes, I definitely faultered 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."
After writing such a detailed post on returning the certificate and ending things on a positive note, we wonder why did Mahira delete it. The post clearly stated that she doesn't want to apologise but in a way hinted that she did goof-up somewhere.
Is Mahira still unapologetic about whatever happened? Was this post a forced stunt by her PR team? Looks like Mahira doesn't want the controversy to end so soon. We don't see a reason for her to take the post off otherwise.
