SRK slaps Shirish at Sanjay Dutt’s bash
Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan allegedly assaulted Farah Khan’s husband and filmmaker Shirish Kunder at Sanjay Dutt’s bash on Sunday.
According to reports, Shirish was drunk and followed Shah Rukh everywhere and even entered the loo with him. Irritated SRK then pinned him to a sofa and allegedly punched him.
Farah Khan confirmed the incident. “Shirish, my husband, was beaten up by Shah Rukh and his three bodyguards in Sanjay Dutt’s party. Shah Rukh asked Shirish why he had tweeted against him… There was no provocation from our side. He had screamed at Shirish telling him that he would destroy me as well,” the choreographer-director said.
Farah Khan is upset about a reported brawl between her superstar friend Shah Rukh Khan and her husband Shirish Kunder at a high-profile party here.
“Shah Rukh has always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out a problem and that it means the person who is hitting has either a professional or personal crisis going on and it saddens me to see him doing the same,” Farah said in an official statement.
As the news about the fight gained momentum, IANS tried contacting Shah Rukh’s official spokesperson for a comment, but had not received any response so far.
However, Kunder took to Twitter to clarify that he is not planning to file any official complaint in this regard.
“Thanks for all your concern and wishes. We are very grateful. Contrary to rumours, we have no intention of filing an FIR or police complaint,” tweeted Kunder.
Apparently, while guests were having a ball, at around 4.30 a.m., Shah Rukh entered the venue straight after the Filmfare awards with three of his bodyguards. According to eyewitnesses, he headed towards Kunder and roughed him up. “We didn’t know what was happening. We saw SRK enter. Then we saw him head towards Shirish from behind the director. SRK pulled Shirish down to the ground by his long hair. We were all shocked. We had never seen SRK behave this way before,” said an eyewitness. “Before anyone could react, Baba Dewan, the owner of Aurus, ran in and intervened. SRK told Dewan to keep out. Dewan said the place belonged to him and he must intervene. The fight would’ve been prolonged had Sanjay Dutt not pulled SRK away from the ugly scene,” the eyewitness added. Kunder apparently left immediately.
Kunder’s wife Farah Khan, who was shooting all night for Bela Sehgal’s Shirin Farhad Ki Nikal Padi, got to know of the fight only when she returned home in the morning. (IANS)
