“When I’d gone to shoot in Pune, on the first day I stayed in a different hotel. But when I told the production team who I was, the very next day they moved me to Taj,” he added while clarifying that it was a misunderstanding and didn’t call for an ego issue.

WOW! First of all you’ve made a news out of the interview which was done 3-4 years back and then even quoted me wrongly. I didn’t face any discrimation during the shoot. When I’d gone to shoot in Pune, on the first day I stayed in a different hotel. But when I told the production team who was I etc, the very next day they moved me to Taj. And there’s no ego/status issue here cause I understand I come from a different industry and at times we also don’t know about the actors and their status who come from different industries. I went to Taj to have dinner on day one in the rickshaw which let me tell you was a fun experience. From the second day till the shoot was over, I stayed at the Taj where Angelina Jolie and Late Irrfan Khan were also staying. FYI- Why half baked journalism? If you want to publish news, at least get the facts right and if there are doubts the least you can do is to cross check with the person you’re writing about!! Appalled at the state of journalism these days. Not only are you feeding wrong piece of information to your audience but also publishing news that will create a rift between people am friends with. My interview with Samina Peerzada is online guys, please listen to it. Thank you 🙏 . . . #saminapeerzada #huatetrail #fakenews #yellowjournalism #rewindwithsaminapeerzada
