Yesterday night, reports started floating around Saif Ali Khan’s so-called tiff with the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel at the Lucknow airport. Apparently, at the airport, he refused to move out of the lounge (which was reserved for the VIPs) and ‘tried to throw his weight around’.
However, the actor has been caught totally unaware with the turn of events since the fact was entirely opposite.
Says Saif, “This is totally baseless. There was no tiff of any kind. What has come out as ‘news‘ is in fact totally distorted. It was a polite conversation and nothing as dramatic as what is being put on print actually happened at all.”
Instead it was Viveck Anand, Joint General Manager – Operations at the airport, who reached out to Saif immediately after and they spent some together over tea.
“We have known each other for 20 years and he is a good friend of mine. We had tea together”, adds Saif.
He is disturbed though with the news-piece making rounds and is now set to sue the news agency that came up with it.
“Guess it is an overzealous reporter at play here who has distorted the entire fact”, says Saif, “It is weird that media has come down to this level. I am inclined to take an action now and my lawyers are working on suing the ones responsible behind this news-piece. Stories like these are damaging.”
On contacted, Viveck too clarified, “Mr. Khan didn’t misbehave with anyone at the airport. In fact it was a pleasure meeting him. I look forward to seeing him soon.”
Now that should set the records straight.
