Mumbai: With his most ambitious project slated for release soon and news of his impending wedding with ladylove Kareena Kapoor doing the rounds, the newly anointed Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan couldn’t have expected a nightmarish episode to come his way.
The actor had earlier rebuffed rumours about his midnight brawl with an NRI businessman as a publicity stunt and now maintains the same stance.
Talking to DNA, Saif said that he is trying to sort out the issue with Iqbal Sharma and his family. However, he admitted that roughing up an elderly person in a fit of rage is something he couldn’t have ever dreamt of.
“We are in talks and I hope to sort it out among ourselves more constructively,” said Saif to DNA.
On being asked if the whole episode was blown out of proportion considering his celebrity status, Saif said, “I don’t want to sound like a victim.”
The Nawab also admits that the brawl could have been avoided.
“But celebrity or not, I do feel that it should have been handled differently. All I know is that, just the idea of hitting out a senior person is something I wouldn’t dream of in a million years. It’s not a publicity stunt. Neither me nor my film need such uncalled for attention.”
Hmm…as long as you realise turning violent was wrong, we have little to complain.
And as they say all’s well that ends well…hope this unpleasant happening, too, settles amicably!
Let peace prevail!
