New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Bollywood celeb and Hrithik Roshan's ex-wife Sussanne Khan on Tuesday dismissed the reports of her arrest doing rounds on the internet since the Mumbai Police's raid at DragonFly Pub near the Mumbai airport in the early hours of Tuesday. Sussanne Khan termed the reports 'incorrect and irresponsible'.

At least 34 people, including Indian Cricketer Suresh Raina, Bollywood singer Guru Randhawa and Badshah, were booked on Tuesday for attending the late-night party and violating the COVID-19 protocols and timings set by the authorities. The police's action came after the Maharashtra government on Monday imposed a night curfew in municipal corporation areas in wake of the new strain found in the UK.

Reacting upon the controversy and reports of her arrest, Sussanne Khan set the record straight and took to her Instagram handle to issue a statement dismissing every report of her arrest from the spot.

"The speculations made by parts of media that there were arrests made are completely incorrect and irresponsible. I fail to understand why we were made to wait or what the issue was with the authorities and the club. I am setting the record straight with this statement", Sussanne Khan wrote on her Instagram.
