A case was registered against Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff and his rumoured girlfriend Disha Patani on Wednesday for allegedly violating the pandemic norms by roaming at a public place without a valid reason, a Mumbai Police official said. Shroff was found roaming near the Bandra bandstand in the evening, hours after the 2 PM deadline for restrictions on the movement of people outside their houses without a valid reason.
"A police team spotted Shroff roaming in the Bandstand area in the evening. When questioned, he couldn't give a satisfactory reply to why he was roaming outside. Police took down his details and registered a case under section 188 (Disobeying the order of public servant) of the IPC," the official said, adding it was a bailable offence and no arrest was made.
Later the Mumbai Police also shared a tweet taking a dig at Tiger and Disha. The tweet read, "In the ongoing ‘War’ against the virus, going ‘Malang’ on the streets of Bandra cost dearly to two actors who have been booked under sections 188, 34 IPC by Bandra PStn . We request all Mumbaikars to avoid unnecessary ‘Heropanti’ which can compromise on safety against #COVID19."
Meanwhile, Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani are often in the news for their rumoured relationship. The couple is often spotted together outside the gym and restuarants. They are said to be dating since 2016. However, they have never admitted to it publicly. They have been seen together in films like Baaghi 3 and Baaghi 2.
