Parineeti Chopra has weighed in on the latest controversy Zomato finds itself embroiled in. The actress took to social media to talk about the recent incident involving a Bangalore-based model-turned-makeup artiste accusing a Zomato delivery executive of assault. The actress urged the delivery service to look into the matter and find out the truth.
Parineeti added that she feels the delivery boy is innocent. She wrote, "Zomato India - PLEASE find and publicly report the truth.. If the gentleman is innocent (and I believe he is), PLEASE help us penalise the woman in question. This is inhuman, shameful and heartbreaking .. Please let me know how I can help.. #ZomatoDeliveryGuy @zomatoin."
The model-turned-make-up artiste posted a video on social media, in which she claimed that the delivery agent punched her. On the other hand, the Zomato delivery boy has claimed that it was the woman who abused him and hit herself through her own ring. Zomato has temporarily suspended the delivery agent and is covering his legal costs. The company is also covering the medical expenses of the model-turned-make-up artiste.
