However the filmmaker has justified it by issuing an official statement. "Yes, being the devotees of Mata Vaishno Devi, my wife Mukta and I have been visiting Radhe Maa to take her blessings since the last year at the mata ki chowki at Borivali Bhavan held by her old devotees."

"We, also held one mata ki chowki at our residence and invited her to bless us and our friends. She has been very affectionate to both of us and treats us like her parents. We have never experienced any such kind of indecent act or atmosphere which is being talked about in the society today", Subhash added.

"We also came to know while meeting her that she is a normal sensitive married woman with two sons who are well settled and grand children and leads a normal social life as any independent woman. In her Devi roop she loves bhajans and dances at times on those bhajans in front of her devotees and want devotees to treat her like a child. Her old devotees call her as 'Gudia Devi Ma' too while applauding her happy childish mood. She had told us that she goes abroad and loves shopping and moves around as a normal girl in contrast to her attire as Devi Maa," he said.

"We feel devotees believe in her n her blessing's powers strongly but surely we also felt that she could be misunderstood by her childish n contrasting life in public. l hope she clarifies herself on this controversy soon. N God bless her", Ghai concluded.
