Celebrity couple Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani landed in trouble after a case was registered against the duo for allegedly roaming at Mumbai’s Bandstand Promenade after the 2 pm deadline for Covid-19 restrictions.
Tiger’s mother Ayesha Shroff came to the couple’s rescue as she defends tham by clarifying that they went out to get essential items. Reacting to a post by a paparazzi account that read, “Tiger, Disha in trouble for heading out during lockdown”, Ayesha hit back by saying:
“You got your facts wrong my dear. They were heading home and cops were checking Aadhaar cards on the way. No one is interested in 'roaming' at a time like this. Please get your facts right before saying such things. Thank you!” She added, “For your information, it is permitted to go out for essentials.”
In another comment, she wrote, "Instead of bringing people down how come no one writes about the free meals he’s providing to front line workers!! That’s coz he himself doesn’t talk about it! So don’t judge till you know. Thank you.”
The post was then deleted.
On Wednesday, Tiger and Disha were booked by Mumbai Police for flouting Covid-19 norms. The duo was pulled by the officials during their car drive and failed to give a valid reason for staying out post the 2 pm deadline, said a police officer.
Mumbai Police even took to their Twitter handle to give a creative spin to the incident. Their post read:
“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.”
