Actor Saif Ali Khan was finally granted bail after being arrested for bashing up Iqbal Sharma, a South African trade official on Tuesday night. Seemingly miffed with the rumour mills working overtime about what exactly happened at Wasabi on Tuesday night, the actor issued an official statement. Here's what he has to say:
"There was an ugly incident last night where my friends and the ladies with us were abused and I was assaulted.
I was hit and I defended myself. I have been to the police station to answer the requirements of law as I am a law abiding citizen. I have also filed a complaint about what happened last night and I am confident justice will be done.
I have seen the interviews given on TV and they look like decent people and I cannot believe that the same people were so aggressive the night before and the lies that they are saying about me with such straight faces.
I think they have the cc tv footage in the restaurant that will prove everything.
I hope the media is able to remain impartial while the matter is being decided. I don’t think any gentleman would have behaved differently”
