Mumbai: Celebrated photographer Jagdish Mali, who was reportedly spotted walking in a disoriented state in a city suburb recently, has rubbished reports saying he is not suffering from any mental problem and is perfectly fine. He says that Bigg Boss 6 contestant Mink Brar has spread a false news about him for her publicity.
Small-time actress Mink Brar, who was a participant in the recently concluded reality show Bigg Boss 6, had reportedly spotted him roaming in semi-nude condition in the suburban Andheri recently. She had first contacted Jagdish's daughter actress Antara Mali, but later called actor Salman Khan for help. However, Jagdish said he just laughed at the matter when he first heard about it.
Talking to PTI, Jagdish Mali said, "I was laughing when I heard all this. I am not angry with Mink or anyone. I am not thinking of taking any legal action or issuing notice to anyone." The ace photographer added, "I am perfectly fine mentally as well as financially. I don't suffer from any kind of psychological ailment. I am diabetic."
Jagdish Mali also said that he has been going for daily walks since the past thirty years. He said, "That day also I had gone for a walk. I walked one and half kilometres and felt my sugar level had dipped. I went to a shop to have a chocolate. I guess with chocolate smeared on my face I might have looked odd."
However, Jagdish Mali, who started his career in the 1980s, has worked with most of the big names in Bollywood. He alleged that Mink might have done this to gain publicity. "I don't know why my name was dragged. I know her (Mink). I had made her portfolio 20 years back, but had not met her after that. I think she did all this for publicity," he said.
