Calendar Girls actress Ruhi Singh was shocked to find her name being used in an alleged drunk-driving case involving a team of Mumbai Police on Tuesday. After the controversy over a viral video which involves another actress with the same name, Ruhi Singh took to her Instagram account to issue a clarification.

The actress clarified that she is not the one who has been embroiled in the controversy but another actress with the same name as of hers.

She wrote, ''This is to clarify, that media reports of ‘ruhi singh’ which have been published today are in no way related to me. The lady in concern possibly shares her name with me. It is amply clear from the screen shot posted above, that it is someone else. (sic)''

''Highly irresponsible journalism by mainstream media houses, using my picture and falsely implicating me in an event I was certainly not a part of. This has caused irreparable damage to my reputation. Would request all media outlets to please verify facts before writing articles (sic),'' the actress added.

Ruhi has also worked in a documentary, 'The World Before Her'.
