Bollywood actress Dia Mirza has brushed off media reports claiming she failed to pay her water dues.


Recently, a leading newspaper carried an article which stated that Dia has defaulted paying her water dues.

Clearing the news, Dia said, "I am a law abiding citizen and the amount is not such that there can ever be a doubt I would try and avoid payment. The whole issue is a result of oversight miscommunication and is unfortunate."

The incident came as a shock to Dia as she wasn't aware of the same and the actress is very upset with how things have turned up.



Talking about the incident, Dia's lawyer Gautam Mehmood said: "The non payment of dues to the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWWSB) was due to oversight. The water connection was taken a long time ago and Ms. Mirza was not aware of the same."

"There is no dispute regarding either the water connection or the dues thereof while it would be relevant to state Ms. Mirza was not aware of the water connection or the bills due regarding the same but as a responsible citizen she is doing the right thing and settling all the bills within the next 24 hours."

The actress also stated on a popular micro-blogging site, "It would be relevant to state I was not aware of the water connection or the bills due."

Dia said she is leaving no stone unturned to know how this lapse happened.
