Meanwhile, Ajay has been in the news over a brawl video that allegedly features him. The video shows two men fighting outside a pub, using unparliamentary language. One of the men, wearing a white shirt, has been being mistaken for Ajay. The actor’s office has issued a statement clarifying that a video being circulated of a man involved in a Delhi brawl is not him.
Even the actor himself reacted to the video by tweeting: “Some ‘doppelgänger’ of mine seems to have got into trouble. I’ve been getting concerned calls. Just clarifying, I’ve not travelled anywhere. All reports regarding me being in any brawl are baseless. Happy Holi.”
