Actress Tania Zaetta denies charges

The 'Salaam Namaste' star was arrested and fined on with USD 400 on-the-spot for allegedly refusing to leave the venue on Monday and was later granted bail after spending some time in jail.Melbourne, mar 23 (PTI) Actress Tania Zaetta, who was arrested for causing public nuisance at a Gold Coast nightclub, has denied charges that she was drunk.

The 'Salam Namaste' star was arrested and fined on with USD 400 on-the-spot for allegedly refusing to leave the venue on Monday and was later granted bail after spending some time in jail.

She has been charged with causing a public nuisance and obstructing police and all set to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on April 4.

But the actress has defended herself saying she was not under the influence of alcohol.
"I strongly deny any charges and will protest my innocence in court," Zaetta told Herald Sun.

"I just arrived back into Australia and shot an ad campaign with a couple of friends and headed up to the Gold Coast that evening or late that afternoon to see my dad and he was arriving after his cancer treatment. I was not at any point refused entry to the venue, nor was I affected by alcohol.

"In fact the venue's website even has a picture of me on that night already inside the venue, having a photo taken with some friends, taken by a photographer."

She also denied allegations from club bouncers that she directed racist slurs at them.
"That's just very hurtful and very disappointing for me considering that I went to a very small country school in Victoria made up of classmates, mostly of whom were from ethnic backgrounds and ethnic origin and many of whom Aboriginal origin."

"I'm a law abiding citizen, I'm doing everything correctly so I can't comment on things right now. I look forward to it going to court and professing my innocence."

Zaetta, shot to fame hosting the 1990s television show 'Who Dares Wins' and went on to work in Bollywood films including item numbers in 'Mr Black Mr White'.
