Actress Soha Ali Khan says that contrary to the reports she did not participate in Saifai Mahotsav cultural event at the ancestral village of Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. "Just for the record, I was not performing at Saifai as stated by some news reports," the daughter of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore tweeted Thursday.
The event, which concluded Wednesday, drew flak for the enormous money spent on it.
BSP leader and former chief minister Mayawati's aide Satish Chandra Mishra said the state exchequer's money was being wasted in Saifai while people were dying from severe cold in Muzaffarnagar relief camps.
Film stars Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit were said to have performed at Saifai.
