Actress Bhagyashree has rubbished the FIR lodged by Mumbai Police against her husband Himalaya Dasani for his alleged role in a gambling racket. While Himalaya was released on bail, Amboli Police booked him under sections 4 and 5 of The Maharashtra Prevention of Gambling Act.
Speaking exclusively to Nation Next, Bhagyashree laughed off the case registered by Mumbai Police against her husband Himalaya Dasani. She said, “It is so ridiculous that someone named my husband during the police investigation and they made a case against him. Himalaya ji was not even present at the place of the incident.”
Bhagyashree added, “We are just paying the cost of being celebrities. In fact, Himalaya ji has got quite a few extortion calls by certain people, saying that they would falsely implicate him in such cases, if he didn’t pay money to them. Unfortunately, in ‘public trial,’ one is guilty until proven innocent. That’s how, the onus of proving Himalaya ji’s innocence lies on us now. This is an utterly false and rubbish case against him.”
