We were moving towards the sound of the wedding bells, they were slowly becoming audible but now this!
Probably, the past does not leave us contentedly onward, into the present. Earlier this year, Saif Ali Khan got himself involved in a meaningless tussle with a South African at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai. The star, accompanied by fiancé Kareena Kapoor, her sister Karisma Kapoor, Malaika Arora-Khan, Amrita Arora, Bilal Amrohi and Shakeel Ladak, where having dinner at the Wasabi when, matters got a little out of hand.
On February the 22nd, Saif Ali Khan was playing host to the ladies, as it seems, but their conversations were loud enough to disturb the other guests. Iqbal Sharma, a non-resident Indian, from South Africa requested Saif to lower his volume. Now, it seems that Saif wasn’t in the mood to lend his ear to a critic; I mean, don’t they get a lot of that anyway. An argument between the two ended with Saif punching the poor bloke in the face. Unfortunately, Mr. Sharma had to tend to a nasal bone fracture. Ouch!
As of now, a chargesheet has been filed; the reason for its delay was because the stars were not available to give their statements. The chargesheet filed by the Colaba Police station, makes a court case inevitable, unless the two parties decide on an out-of-court settlement. Khan is currently on bail, after he had deposited a surety of Rs. 15,000, and is currently booked under Sections 323, 325 and 34 of the IPC.
Call it bad luck, fate or use whatever idiomatic calculation you feel sums up his actions; unfortunately, it had to happen a week before his wedding. Besides, we shouldn’t blame Iqbal Sharma, after being punched in the nose he has the full right to be a “nak mein dum”.
