Bollywood's nawab actor Saif Ali khan is back in news for wrong reasons. Past two years of allegedly having assaulted an NRI Businessman and his father-in-law at a hotel in Mumbai, a local court has now framed charges against the star and his two friends under sections of IPC.
The two years back news was that Saif along with his friends, Shakeel Ladak and Bilal Amrohi were arrested after a South-Africa based businessman, Iqbal Mir Sharma filed a case of assault against them. Mir in the FIR alleged that the actor along with his friends assaulted him and his father-in-law, Raman Patel at the Taj Hotel on February 22, 2012.
It has been alleged that Saif along with some of his male friends engaged into a fight with the NIR and his father-in-law after the duo opposed their loud talks at the hotel and then Saif allegedly hit Mir on his face which left his nose fractured. However, the actor denied the charges and stressed that the businessman passed provocative comments against the female friends who were accompanying him which resulted into the brawl. The ladies accompanying Saif on that night were the star's wife Kareena Kapoor, sister-in-law Karishma Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan and Amrita Arora, besides some male friends.
Although, the star and his two male friends were later released on bail but the court now after it's hearing has charged them under section 325 and 34 of IPC. Nevertheless, the accused celebrity and his allies pleaded to be innocent when the charges were read out to them at the court.
It seems Bollywood stars and controversies go hand in hand as 'Munnabhai' Sanjay Dutt is already behind the bars for possession of illegal arms, while star Salman Khan is also under half water in regard to a hit and run case. And now, the court having framed the charges against Saif Ali Khan, the nawab actor might also face similar fate.
Saif Ali Khan has been busy these days preparing for his upcoming movie Humshakals directed by Sajid Khan and is scheduled to release on June 20.
