Taking to Riva Arora’s Instagram stories, her mother wrote, “I was calm, but not anymore. The allegations on my daughter’s age are completely false and it’s a saying that false news travels faster then ever and many reputed social media channels proved it. It is sad to see and disheartening for me. Atleast you should have cross checked with me before upload on reputed pages.”
