On Instagram, Pancholi slammed a media report that connected him to Salian. The report ran alongside a picture of him with a woman mentioned as Salian.
In a strongly worded post, Pancholi clarified that the woman in the picture was not Salian but a friend of his.
Alongside the post, he wrote: “Is this the media we are supposed to trust?? That girl in the picture which was clicked in 2016 is not “Disha Salian” that is my friend @agaur21 [Anushri Gaur] who doesn’t even live in India.”
“Please stop brainwashing people and PLEASE stop harassing me and dragging me into this ! Start being responsible of your actions as it can ruin someone’s life!”
He added: “I have said this before and I’m saying it again I have never met or spoken to Disha Salian in my life. I’ve had enough.”
