“I usually order for Ruhaan and me. At that time I was occupied so I paid and took the parcel. But when I opened it, it wasn’t something that I ordered. Didn’t realise it before because the name, address, and even phone number on the parcel was mine,” she continued.

Kakar further said the same thing happened the next day as well. “The next day, 3-4 parcels arrived. I said that they weren’t mine. The delivery guy said the cancelled OTP would come to my phone number. I gave the OTP and he left. Again today, 2-3 parcels came and I denied they weren’t mine and I won’t give the OTP,” the actor said.

Only then make your payment,” she concluded.
