NEW DELHI: A day after his spokesperson released a statement on the Delhi brawl video, actor Ajay Devgn took to Twitter and clarified that the video being circulated of a man involved in the Delhi brawl is not him and ‘it must have been some doppelganger.
Now, responding, to the rumours, Ajay has issued a clarification. “Some ‘doppelgänger’ of mine seems to have got into trouble. I’ve been getting concerned calls. Just clarifying, I’ve not traveled anywhere. All reports regarding me being in any brawl are baseless. Happy Holi,” he wrote in a tweet.
Earlier, his team has said that Ajay hasn’t set foot in Delhi-NCR in the last 14 months. “Post the promotion of Tanhaji-The Unsung Warrior in January 2020, actor-filmmaker 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 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,” the statement told by his spokesperson.
The brawl broke out when one of their vehicles “slightly touched” another following which two men were arrested. Those arrested were identified as Taranjit Singh (31), a resident of Janakupuri who deals in sale and purchase of cars and Naveen Kumar (29), a resident of Chhawla village who is a property dealer. Both of them have no previous criminal history, the police said, adding other accused involved in the fight are being identified. Speaking of the incident, the police has arrested two people in connection with it.
On the work front, Ajay Devgn will next be seen in ‘Maidaan’, which is a sports biopic. The actor will be seen in the role of a football coach, Syed Abdul Rahim. He will be next seen in ‘MayDay’ alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Rakul Preet Singh.
Ajay Devgn is also a part of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ starring Alia Bhatt in the lead.
