As per several reports, Uorfi was in the UAE shooting for her upcoming projects for over a week. Uorfi was questioned by the local police in Dubai, as per a report.
“The police had arrived to stop the shoot because of some issues at the location. There was a time till when we were allowed to shoot as it was a public place, the production team didn’t extend the timing, hence we had to leave. It had nothing to do with my clothes at all. We shot the remaining part the next day so it was all sorted,” Indian Express quoted a statement by Uorfi.
Earlier, an ETimes report said that there was ‘no problem’ in Uorfi’s outfit. Since she shot the video in an open area, she was being interrogated by Dubai authorities.
