“I am a law abiding citizen and the amount is not such that there can ever be a doubt I would try and avoid payment. The whole issue is a result of oversight miscommunication and is unfortunate.”
The incident came as a shock to Dia as she wasn’t aware of the same and the actor is very upset with how things have turned up. Talking about the incident Gautam Mehmood, Dia’s lawyer said:
“The non payment of dues to the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWWSB) was due to oversight. The water connection was taken a long time ago and Ms. Mirza was not aware of the same. There is no dispute regarding either the water connection or the dues thereof while it would be relevant to state Ms. Mirza was not aware of the water connection or the bills due regarding the same but as a responsible citizen she is doing the right thing and settling all the bills within the next 24 hours.”
The actor who always abides by the law also stated in a popular micro blogging site,
“It would be relevant to state I was not aware of the water connection or the bills due.”
The actor is leaving no stone unturned to know how this lapse happened. Given her track record, we could say that the whole incident is unfortunate.
Well it’s not surprising that many actors are not able to pay dues but this sure does clear up the air on such rumors!
