A video of a man getting beaten up in a brawl outside Delhi's Aerocity mall was widely being circulated on social media. The video shows two men fighting outside a pub, using unparliamentary language. Many people had claimed that one of the men, wearing a white shirt, was Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn. However, the actor's team has now issued a statement clarifying that the man in the viral video he has been mistaken for Ajay.
"Post the promotion of 'Tanhaji-The Unsung Warrior' in January 2020, Ajay Devgn has not visited Delhi. So media reports of a brawl involving the superstar outside a Delhi pub are absolutely baseless and untrue. We request news agencies and media picking this up to please note that Mr Devgn has been in Mumbai the entire time shooting for 'Maidaan', 'MayDay' and 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' and he hasn't set foot in the Capital in 14 months. Request all media to please cross check before putting out anything," read the statement from Ajay Devgn's team.
According to a report in India Today, the said video of the brawl, which was caught on camera at the Delhi's mall, broke out between two groups when their vehicles slightly scratches one another on March 27. Two men, identified as Taranjit Singh (31), a resident of Janakupuri and Naveen Kumar (29), a resident of Chhawla village, have been nabbed by the police. The two men have not filed any complaint against each other. However, the police have registered a case under several sections for violating the COVID-19 rules and regulations. "But we registered a case under sections of affray and other relevant sections for violation of coronavirus protocols," a senior officer said.
On the work front, Ajay is currently shooting for Gangubai Kathiawadi which is being helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and stars Alia Bhatt in the lead role.
