Fardeen Khan got into a fight with his sister Laila's boyfriend Farhan Ebrahim Furniturewalla, at a lounge bar in a five star hotel in Andheri in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Says a source, "After Queenie Dhody's party on Saturday, Fardeen with wife Natasha, sister Laila and her boyfriend Farhan Furniturewalla, Sunny and Anu Dewan, Farah Khan and her husband DJ Aqueel went to Bling together and continued partying till the wee hours of the morning."
Reveals an eyewitness, "Spirits were flowing freely and no-one is quite sure what triggered off the fight. Suddenly, Fardeen got up and slapped Farhan. Before anyone could intervene or Farhan could react, the actor planted another slap on his face. That's when everyone around jumped in, and separated the two." The fight was broken up before Farhan could retaliate.
It is learnt that Fardeen doesn't approve of Laila dating Farhan and the siblings have been having issues since their dad Feroz Khan's death. It's been a difficult time for both but the public scuffle has shocked everyone who knows the family. It wasn't long before Laila and Farhan walked out of Bling and went home.
Fardeen, who was still in a belligerent mood, was escorted out by Farah and her husband Aqueel. When contacted Fardeen said, "Nobody was high as all of you (the media) love to put it. Farhan's a super guy and we had a disagreement over our favourite WWE wrestler. We thought it best to resolve it by demonstrating each of our favourite moves."
Farhan admits to having an argument but tries to play it down. He says, "It was nothing — just a small argument. No one was bashed up. Nor did Fardeen hit me. It was nothing so dramatic. If he did hit me, I know how to take care of myself. There was nothing more to it. The family is going through so much. I don't think Fardeen was in the right frame of mind. He was a little high. I understand where Fardeen's coming from coming from. The family is going through so much (referring to Feroz Khan's death) and Fardeen and Laila are handling their grief in their own way."
Is Fardeen upset with him for dating his sister? "I don't know if Fardeen's upset with me for dating Laila. That you will ask him. He knows we have been dating each other for a long time. Laila and I haven't hidden it. It was a minor issue. I think it was just overreaction from Fardeen's side," adds Farhan. Farhan says the argument fizzled off on its own. "It was 5 am and we had to end the evening. We all left normally. I am surprised you got to hear about it. It was a family matter. I have nothing against Fardeen. It's a sensitive time for the family and we have to treat such issues sensitively."
