DPIFF OFFICIAL STATEMENT Our offical statement on @officialmahirasharma for forging the prestigious certificate of Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2020 ` #fraud #cheating #mahirasharma #biggboss #biggboss13 #dpiff #dpiff2020 #fraudactivity #viralbhayani #manavmanglani @amar_ujala @abpnewstv @pinkvilla @rvcjinsta @spotboye_in @laughingcolours @dailyhuntapp @dainikbhaskar_
The statement read, “This said certificate of appreciation has not been issued by any team member of DPIFF or the associates involved in the event and hence is considered to be forged. This fraudulent certificate has clearly violated the DPIFF’s IP based assets and the brand collaterals as they have been used without the consent of the organization to create this accolade.”
The DPIFF’s team issued an Intimation letter of such act to Mahira Sharma asking to take down all the misleading PR activities done by her and her team and have asked her to share a written public apology to the brand within the next 48 hours. Failing to do so will result in legal proceedings against her and all the others involved in preparation of such purported story and certificate.
