Simran, who has been trying her hand in the film industry is also believed to be close to several B Town celebrities and is seen hanging out at page 3 parties, where the investigating officials suspect her associate Palande of trapping wealthy men with th ehelp pf Simran and taking illegal possession over their properties.
