Was Mahira Sharma's Dadasaheb Phalke Award Certificate fake or real?
Bigg Boss 13 contestant Mahira Sharma recently took to her Instagram account and shared a story of her Dadasaheb Phalke Award Certificate for the most fashionable contestant of the show. However, it now seems it was fake!
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)

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.
