The actor purportedly punched a man on the nose at the Taj’s Wasabi restaurant in Colaba last night. The man who filed the grievance, Iqbal S from Juhu, was dining with his family at an adjoin table.
Iqbal, in his complaint, has suspected that he requested Saif Ali Khan to lower his voice as the noise was disturbing them. He asserts that Saif Ali Khan told him to go to a library to get peace.
An argument broke between them and two of Saif’s associates beaten Iqbal, who has sustained a fracture on his nose.
In 2008, a case was filed against the actor for supposedly assaulting a photojournalist in Patiala during a film shoot. No arrests were made in the case and a concession was worked out when Saif apologised later.
Saif Ali Khan’s home production Agent Vinod is due to release on March 23 and features real-life girlfriend Kareena Kapoor in the escort with him.
