A complaint was filed against Arjun Rampal for allegedly assaulting a man in a club here on early Sunday, the city police said. But the actor claims the news is “untrue”.
Arjun tweeted on Sunday: “Woke up to be flooded by messages of assaulting a fan? Man! Where do people make this news up from? Not assaulted anyone. Untrue. Fake news.”
