Bipasha Basu has distanced herself from controversy surrounding the International Yoga Day, she was a part of recently.
The Karnataka based event has been embroiled in trouble after the private organisers raised a bill of Rs. 45 lakh for ‘Bend It Like Bipasha’ programme that lasted barely ah hour. Times Of India reports that the government refused to pay Basu for her participation and directed the organisers to authenticate the expenditure.
A source told the publication, “Bipasha attended the event only with the intention of promoting yoga and creating awareness on health and physical fitness amongst the youth. It was not for her name to get dragged into it. The news that has appeared is not true.”
