Nobody from @TOIIndiaNews got in touch with my PR team or me to get clarity before carrying an untrue front page article about me being assaulted. Rather unfortunate & avoidable. Hope this doesn’t happen in the future cause it got my family distressed and it’s not appreciated.

Reports suggested that Arjun Kapoor was allegedly manhandled by a driver. The person, who has been identified as Kamal Kumar, was in an inebriated state and had approached the actor in his vanity van. The incident took place when Kamal Kumar insisted on shaking hands with Arjun Kapoor. When the actor complied, Kumar reportedly tried to twist his hand. Kamal Kumar has been arrested for attempt to assault. His car has been seized by cops for drunk driving under the Motor Vehicle Act and he has also been fined Rs 500.

While speaking about the incident to Times of India, Dhyan Singh, station house officer (SHO) of Pithoragarh, said, “Kamal arrived in his car and tried to shake hands with Kapoor. But he was in an inebriated state and tried to twist the actor’s hand. A medical examination of Kapoor was conducted and he was stated to be fine. We have written to the assistant regional transport officer, Naveen Kumar, to cancel Kamal’s driving license on charges of driving while drunk.”

The cast and crew of ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ have been shooting in Pithoragarh district since November 3. Produced by Yash Raj films, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are the lead actors in the movie.
