Actress Meera Chopra on Sunday issued a statement clarifying that she has not received the COVID-19 vaccine via unfair means.
A few days after Meera announced on social media that she has taken the jab, it was reportedly revealed on social media that she had been registered as a front line worker with the Municipal corporation in Thane to allow her to get vaccinated on priority.
The actress also came under scrutiny and criticism after an identification card that seemingly showed her posing as a frontline worker emerged online.
Now, Meera has said that the ID card that has been floating on social media is not hers. She also stated that she saw the ID for the first time when it was shared on Twitter.'Being related to Priyanka Chopra hasn't helped me,' says Meera Chopra
Here's her full statement:
"We all want to get vaccinated and we all are trying our best to do that. Similarly I also tried by asking help from people I know and after 1 month of trying I was able to get myself registered in one of the centres. I was just asked to send in my aadhaar card. The ID that has been floating on social media is not mine. I was asked for my Aadhaar card for registration and that’s the only ID I gave. No ID is valid until it has your signature. I myself, saw that so called ID card for the first time, when it came on Twitter."
"I totally condemn such practices and if any such ID has been made I would want to know how and why," she added.Meera Chopra's statement
