Tania Zaetta pleads innocence

entertainment Updated: Mar 26, 2011 00:33 IST

Actor Tania Zaetta, who was recently arrested for causing public nuisance at an Australian nightclub, has denied charges that she was drunk. The Salaam Namaste actor was arrested and fined $400 for allegedly causing public nuisance and obstructing police. She was later granted bail and is set to appear in a court on April 4.

But the actor defends herself. “I deny any charges and will protest my innocence in court,” Zaetta told Herald Sun. “I just arrived in Australia and shot an ad campaign after which I went to the Gold Coast that evening to see my dad. I was not refused entry to the venue, nor was I affected by alcohol.”

She also denied allegations from club bouncers that she directed racist slurs at them. “That’s just very hurtful for me considering that I went to a school where many of my classmates were from ethnic origin.” Zaetta shot to fame with Who Dares Wins, a 1990s television show and worked in some Bollywood films.
