Mehreen Kaur Pirzada said that she was travelling with her family on a vacation from Vancouver to Las Vegas for a weekend holiday, when she was questioned by the US Border officials when they found out she was an actress from Telugu Film Industry.
The actress further said, “I have a very good rapport with the media as they have always treated me extremely well. Once in for all I’m stating that facts as to what happened with me in USA. I was traveling with my family on a vacation from Vancouver to Las Vegas for a weekend holiday. When I was going through immigration, on finding out that I am an actress in Tollywood, I was questioned by the US Border officials as to the reason why I was travelling in United State. The officials then told me about the scandal which was the first that I heard about it. On finding out that I have nothing to do with the said issue, the officials apologized to me and let me travel without any further problems. I came out publicity regarding the incident for the sake of propriety as I felt it’s best that I make a statement before anyone else assume otherwise. The fact that I was embarrassed by the situation and very shaken up is a personal thing. It pains me that the actions of a few bad people have tarnished the image of a vibrant and thriving industry. I hope the perpetrators of this scandal are punished as they deserve to be.”
