Bollywood actress Meera Chopra has denied allegations of her using unfair means to get Covid-19 vaccine. There has been reports on social media alleging that Meera disguised as a frontline worker to get the vaccination. The actress has denied all such reports.
After getting her jab, Meera had shared a picture of her getting vaccinated at a Thane center on Instagram. A few hours after that, politician Niranjan Davkhare shared a picture of the fake identification card, along with Meera’s vaccination pic and wrote in a tweet that the matter should be investigated.

Since then, Meera has deleted the post about her vaccination from her social media handles and has issued a statement regarding the same. “We all want to get vaccinated and we all are trying our best to do that. Similarly, I also tried trying 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 flouting 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,” the statement read.
