Priyanka Pandit viral video, which shows a woman alleged to be her captured in a ‘compromising’ position, has sparked controversy on social media that is refusing to die down. Naming her, the old private MMS is wide in circulation again. Breaking silence on the matter days after it surfaced, Pandit is quoted in reports saying she is falsely being implicated in the controversy.
Speaking to the media, the Bhojpuri actor known for films like Banoo Main Teri Dulhan and Judwaa 2 reiterated she is not the woman in the viral clip and the controversy is someone’s “planning” in a bid to tarnish her image, according to Times of India.
The case is reportedly under investigation by authorities. More here.
Pandit’s controversy erupted soon after her film industry colleague Trisha Kar Madhu faced similar trolling for a private video featuring her and her partner that went viral online. Madhu issued repeated requests to netizens to stop sharing her clip.
