KUALA LUMPUR: ‘‘I find it strange when people think that his statement was meant for me,’’ said popular actress Rozita Che Wan.
She was commenting on Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki’s recent comments reminding Malaysian Muslims, especially celebrities, not to get carried away photographing themselves during their umrah trips in the holy cities.
“It was just a reminder for all Malaysian pilgrims from Malaysia. Other celebrities have also gone there and take photos of themselves too,” she said at a press conference held at Royale Chulan Damansara.
Che Ta is known to bring along professional photographers whenever she and her family are holidaying overseas, including during umrah trips in Saudi Arabia.
The 44-year-old artiste said there was no reason for her to feel slighted as neither Asyraf nor the article mentioned any specific names.
“The reason why I post my photos on social media was just as a keepsake and to share my experience there with my fans, and not to gloat," she said.
