Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani were booked by the Mumbai Police for allegedly violating the Covid-19 rules. They reportedly went for a drive and then were caught by policemen who were on patrolling duty at Bandra Bandstand. Though they showed their papers but couldn’t cite the proper reason for roaming late at night in the city amidst the lockdown. We all know that Maharashtra is under lockdown till June 15.
Responding to a paparazzi’s post on Tiger-Disha’s news, Tiger’s mother Ayesha Shroff wrote, “You got your facts wrong my dear. They were heading home and cops were checking Aadhaar cards on the way. No one is interested in “roaming” at a time like this. Please get your facts right before saying such things. Thank you!” She added, “For your information, it is permitted to go out for essentials.” However, the post is deleted now.

She also said that no one writes about the free meals her son is providing to front-line workers. “That’s coz he himself doesn’t talk about it! So don’t judge till you know. Thank you,” replied Ayesha to a user.
Well, Mumbai Police today confirmed the news of both being booked under sections 188, 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). They also took a dig at both via a tweet by taking the names of Tiger and Disha’s movies.
In the ongoing ‘War’ against the virus, going ‘Malang’ on the streets of Bandra cost dearly to two actors who have been booked under sections 188, 34 IPC by
Bandra PStn . We request all Mumbaikars to avoid unnecessary ‘Heropanti’ which can compromise on safety against #COVID19
