|The bash hosted by Sanjay Dutt to celebrate the success of Agneepath on Sunday night turned into a real bash when Shahrukh Khan allegedly slapped and roughed up Shirish Kunder, the husband of Farah Khan.
According to the sources from the party at a popular nightclub in Juhu, Shahrukh Khan walked in the party quite late and by that time Shirish Kunder was at the bar and had apparently downed a few drinks. Sources say Kunder kept on passing potshots at Shahrukh and even followed him sneakily everywhere he went in the party, including the loo.
Then suddenly, he was taken by surprise when Shahrukh Khan pinned him on a sofa and screamed at him and slapped him. Apparently Sanjay Dutt, the party’s host and biz honcho Baba Dewan intervened to stop the fight and separated the two.
Shirish Kunder is reported to have said: “Shahrukh punched and jumped on me. And he had three bodyguards with him. I don't know what got him. I was numb with shock so I couldn't react. He kept screaming at me, 'What do you think of yourself? I'll see to it that you're out of this industry’.”
Shirish Kunder was later seen walking out of the party with a swollen face. His wife Farah Khan, once a very good friend of Shahrukh Khan, has expressed her anger in a statement.
“Shahrukh has always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out a problem, and that it means the person who's hitting has either a personal or professional crisis going on. So it saddens me to see him doing the same,” Farah Khan said in a statement.
There have been reports that Sanjay Dutt himself slapped Kunder a couple of times. However, Dutt’s spokesperson denies it.
It was also being said that Shirish Kunder plans to file a police complaint against Shahrukh Khan. However, the director denied it.
“Thanks for all your concern & wishes. We are very grateful. Contrary to rumours, we have no intention of filing a FIR or police complaint,” Shirish Kunder wrote on his Twitter page.
Meanwhile, Shahrukh Khan hasn’t said a word on his fight with Shirish Kunder.
