Talking about this matter, Mahira had earlier said, “My manager, Mr. Abhinav Tanwar was informed by Mr. Mehta that we will be gratified at the event with the title of Most Fashionable Bigg Boss 13 Contestant. At the event, the team of Bigg Boss 13 was called on stage and gratified with a token of appreciation. On questioning about my solo award by my manager to Mr. Mehta, he handed over the award to my manager stating that I cannot be called on stage owing to the huge hue and rush on stage.”
