A lot was expected to come to light after the staff at Taj Hotel in Mumbai unveil that CCTV footage that is said to have covered the midnight brawl between Saif Ali Khan and South African NRI businessman Iqbal Sharma. But if sources are to be believed, there are no CCTV cameras installed in the hotel.
Recently, Iqbal Sharma filed a complaint with the Colaba police station that Saif Ali Khan and his friends assaulted him and hit on his nose. But the Bollywood actor, who arrested and released on bail on Wednesday evening told police that he was innocent and it was Sharma who hit him first. He used abusive language against his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor, her sister Karisma and actress Amrita Arora, who were dining with him in the hotel.
Saif Ali Khan had claimed that Iqbal Sharma's blow and his usage of foul language against the women with him provoked him to act in self-defence. He said, “I'm confident that justice will be done. I think the police have the CCTV footage from the restaurant and that will prove everything."
But now the most disappointing news is coming on Thursday from an investigating police officer, who claims that there were no video cameras installed in the area, where the brawl between Saif Ali Khan and Iqbal Sharma took place at a luxury hotel. However, it should be recalled here that this was the hotel which was attacked by Pakistani terrorists in 2008 and claimed hundreds of lives. Despite this, the hotel management seemed to have continued to ignore the privacy and protection of its guests.
