Actor Shweta Tiwari has yet again landed herself into controversy after she made an offensive statement during a press conference in Bhopal on Wednesday.
Shweta had visited Bhopal for a press conference about her upcoming web series that also stars Rohit Roy, Digangana Suryavanshi, and Sourabh Raaj Jain in lead roles.
As per a clip obtained from the event, where the star cast was seen seated on a dais, Shweta made a statement, “Mere bra ki size bhagwan le rahe hai.” (God is taking the measurements for my bra) As per viral reports, the show for which the press conference was held is a fashion-related web series. ‘Mahabharata’ fame Saurabh Jain who played the role of Lord Krishna in the mythological show, will be playing the role of a ‘bra fitter’ in the upcoming series.

“What will you say this? What are these people proud of? Media has named these people as celebrities. Kya action nhi hona chahiye …#ShwetaTiwari,” a Twitter user wrote.
