Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah fame actress Munmun Dutta has clarified on the rumours surrounding her arrest in connection with a casteist remark case.

In an interview with an entertainment portal, Munmun clarified that she was not arrested and was at Hansi Police station for a ‘regular interrogation’ and she had obtained interim bail on Friday, prior to her interrogation.

Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Munmun  said, “Contrary to rumours claiming that I was 'arrested', I want to clarify that I went in for a regular interrogation with the police officials. I was not arrested. In fact, I had received the interim bail from the court already on Friday before I went in for the interrogation. The officials at Hansi Police Station spoke to me for two and half hours about the case and noted down all important details. They were extremely polite and well behaved. I have been cooperating with the police and will continue to do so.”

However, she was shocked with her arrest stories that were going around and requested the media to not create false narratives around the case.

Munmun revealed that she was busy shooting for TMKOC when she got to know about the clickbait headlines and thumbnails that were being circulated.

Last year, a case was filed against her in Haryana’s Hansi town for making a casteist slur in one of her YouTube videos. She had later apologised in a public statement, but it did not go down well with a section of social media. An FIR was also lodged against the actress in Hissar, Haryana.
