Mumbai: A case of assault under section 325 IPC (causing grievous hurt) has been registered against actor Saif Ali Khan in Mumbai.
The actor allegedly punched a man on the nose at the Taj’s Wasabi restaurant in Colaba last night.
The man who filed the complaint, Iqbal S from Juhu, was dining with his family at an adjoining table.
Iqbal, in his complaint, has alleged that he requested Saif Ali Khan to lower his voice as the noise was disturbing them. He claims that Saif Ali Khan told him to go to a library to get peace.
An altercation broke between them and two of Saif’s associates allegedly assaulted Iqbal, who has sustained a fracture on his nose.
In 2008, a case was filed against the actor for allegedly assaulting a photojournalist in Patiala during a film shoot.
No arrests were made in the case and a compromise was worked out when Saif apologised later.
Saif Ali Khan’s home production Agent Vinod is due to release on March 23 and features real-life girlfriend Kareena Kapoor in the lead with him.
