Actor Parineeti Chopra shared a screenshot of a tweet, which was posted by a Twitter handle named Fun Kids India, an Indian online channel for kids. In the tweet shared by Parineeti, the organizers of the channel claimed that she will be the part of the judging panel of one of their competitions. Parineeti called it a “sham” and confirmed that she is not going to be a part of the show.
On Saturday, Parineeti shared a screenshot of a tweet by Fun Kids India. In the now-deleted tweet, the organizers mentioned that Parineeti and Salim Merchant will be the judges of the kids show.
Parineeti posted the screengrab and wrote, “Absolute SHAM – I am not associated with this show in any way. Request you to kindly remove my name and not take advantage of kids and their parents in this way.”
One person replied to Parineeti’s tweet and said, “The nerve and audacity of some people. I’m so sorry you were mentioned in this! we all support you through this Sham!” The page once again clarified by replying to this person’s tweet and wrote, “It’s not a SHAM, the agency in the middle messed it up!! We want Parineeti to be our Grand Finale Judge, which is mid-2022.”
Parineeti is currently shooting for Uunchai. The Sooraj Barjatya directorial also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Boman Irani and Anupam Kher.
