“I am from Mumbai. You might remember the 26/11 terror attack. The then Congress government was weak and could not do anything. The then Chief Minister (Vilasrao Deshmukh) had brought a film producer outside Oberoi Hotel while shooting and bombing was going on inside. CM was concerned about getting his child a film role,” Goyal said while addressing business community on Sunday.

Now, late CM’s actor-son Riteish hits back at Piyush Goyal and wrote on Twitter, “Honourable Minister, It is true that I had visited the Taj/Oberoi Hotel but untrue that I was there while the ‘Shooting and Bombing’ was happening as you claimed. It is true that I had accompanied my father but untrue that he was trying to get me a role in a film. He never ever spoke to a director or a producer to cast me in film & I take pride in that. You have every right to question a CM but it is wrong to accuse someone who is not here to defend himself. A bit late, 7 yrs ago- He would have replied to you. My best wishes with your campaign Sir. Love & Regards, Riteish Vilasrao Deshmukh
