Bigg Boss 13 contestant Mahira Sharma responded to allegations levied by the team of the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards that she had lied about being honoured by them as the most fashionable contestant of the show.

After Sharma posted about it on social media, the organisers slammed the news, stating: "This immoral and distasteful attempt by Mahira Sharma to gain publicity by counterfeiting a very reputed award and showcasing her name on to a falsified category has created irreversible damage to the brand's image." (sic)

Take a look right here:

Yesterday, Sharma took to social media to reveal that the team had, in fact, reached out to her management, promising her of the title. She claims her award was handed over to her management since the organisers said she couldn't be "called on stage owing to the huge hue and rush". She urged the organisers to have matters verified and offered to help in the investigation. Read her clarification right here:

It was not over yet, as the DPIFF had another counter for her claims. It seems a legal route is about to be taken by the prestigious awards. Read it here:

Sharma is now yet to reply to this notice. Let's see where and how the matter ends.
