Then she stated that the person handed the award to her manager and said that she could not be called at the stage personally due to the rush. She wrote, "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."

She then demanded a clean chit as she has nothing to do with any type of forging and the accusations have hurt her. She also informed that the managing team of Premal Mehta and Yash Naik have taken the responsibility of the whole scenario and have said that she has nothing to do with it.
