From the past few days, digital platforms are ablaze with the reports that, Pawan Kalyan slapped the comedian Shakalaka Shankar of Jabardasth fame, on the sets of Sardaar Gabbar Singh.
The reports suggested that Shankar's careless attitude on the sets and his unpunctual timings irked Pawan Kalyan. The actor allegedly slapped the comedian in the presence of almost the entire cast and crew.
However, the authenticity of the news remains doubtful, as none from the team acknowledged the reports. Especially, the incident is a shocker to the industry sources and fans, as Pawan Kalyan is best known for his extremely well-behaved nature.
Though he is equally popular for his aggressive and impulsive behaviour, he doesn't have any record of losing his cool, on the film sets, till date. When we probed further into the issue, a close source to the team, confirmed the roughhouse, but the reasons mentioned were different.
Apparently, Shankar was joking around on the director of the film, Bobby, and is reportedly throwing tantrums, due to which the pace of shoot is being disturbed.
So the furious powerstar stepped in, to teach him a lesson. Perhaps, the actor is said to have lost his cool and has slapped the comedian, but has later apologized. Shakalaka Shankar, who is a great devotee of Pawan Kalyan, is tight-lipped about the whole incident, which is further strengthening the reports.
If you remember, in the past, the comedian claimed several times that his life ambition is to build a temple for Pawan Kalyan. Hope he is still sticking to his extreme fanism and things are fine between the duo.
