Mahira Sharma has denied all the allegations leveled against her.

After which actress Mahira Sharma in an open letter claimed that her manager Abhinav Tanwar was contacted by  Premal Mehta who told him that she has been given an award for certain category. She wrote that her name has been falsely dragged into the matter and is being falsely accused of forging the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival 2020. But the actress was never called on stage for giving the award as Bigg Boss team was given a token of appreciation. Premal Mehta from Purple Fox Media along with Yash Naik who is an artiste manager for the said award show claimed that they have been associated with Dadasaheb Awards past two years.

She further stated that after completing the award show, she gave interviews to news channels and posted the photo on her social media accounts. Unaware of being linked to forgery and miscommunication the actress has denied apologizing. The actual organizers in a letter claimed that the award given to Mahira Sharma was a fake certificate handed over by a third party agency related to the PR industry. They also claimed that the PR agency does not have a direct link with the festival.

The team of organizers have sent two formal communications in which one of the letters seeks apology for violating the brand's IP assets and brand collaterals. They claim that this has led to negative PR and damages to the DPIFF team.
