Things have been soured between Bigg Boss 13 fame Mahira Sharma who was once a good friend of co-contestant Shehnaaz Gill. While there is no major fight between the two, but they refrain from speaking against each other in front of the media.
Recently, it was reported that Mahira Sharma has been paying money to Shehnaaz Gill’s fan pages on social media and various screenshots were circulated. But in a conversation with a leading daily, Mahira denied the allegations and revealed that she was contemplating approaching the Cyber Crime Cell with regards to the matter.
Mahira revealed, “It started a couple of days ago and I learnt about it through social media. A lot of people, including some small-time YouTubers have reported that I tried to buy Shehnaaz’s fan pages. They have been tagging me on such news and reports. I thought of avoiding it initially, but now, things have come to a head. To begin with, they have no proof to substantiate their claims. Why will I buy anyone’s fan pages?
She continued, “This fake news is being circulated to malign me. They are trolling me and it’s being done on purpose. I don’t know who is behind all of this. If I had to spend money, I would rather invest in a team that handles my social media accounts. I don’t want any negative publicity. I am not even active on social media. So, there is no need for me to buy anyone’s fans. It’s so bizarre to claim that I called random people to approach Shehnaaz’s fans to get me her fan pages. Isn’t it crazy? It’s not as if someone else’s fans will start liking my work over their favourite celebrity. I am happy with my fans and am proud of them. They don’t abuse or troll anyone. Main aise fans toh chahungi nahi ki woh kisi aur ko troll karein, because Shehnaz ke fans bahut abuse karte hain,” said Mahira.
When asked on the current equation with Shehnaaz, she said, “Shehnaaz and I don’t have any problems. At least, I don’t have any from my side. I had met her during an episode of ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karoge’, but I have not been in touch with her since. I have always spoken well about her, even when I was asked about her video with Sidharth. I believe in focusing on my work rather than talking about others, she said.
She also added, “I would expect everyone’s fans to maintain decorum on social media, as their behaviour also reflects on the celebrity they are cheering for. Shehnaaz has worked hard to reach where she is today. By trolling someone else, you tarnish the reputation of your favourite celebrity, too.”
Earlier, a few weeks back, Devoleena Bhattacharjee had lodged a complaint at the Cyber Crime Cell against a ‘supposed’ Shehnaaz Gill fan for posting a filthy audio clip targeting the actress and her mother after Devoleena said that she did not see any chemistry between Gill and Sidharth Shukla in their music video “Bhula Dunga”.
