Bollywood supports Saif Ali Khan
Stars tweeted their reactions about the brawl between Saif Ali Khan and NRI businessman Iqbal Sharma at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, which led to a police case against the actor.
Actress Amrita Arora, who was with Saif when the incident happened, defended her husband Shakeel Ladak who is also reportedly involved in the scuffle. 'Some tweeps havin a field day slagging of my husband n saif...if only they knew the truth....well we do, n now everybody does. Truth prevails! Its sad that celebs become victims of other people wantin their 15 mins of fame.... Jst for the record,if the people concerned were assaulted so badly,hw come they were fit enuf to b on tv givin ontrviews all day.... Y is that r people had physical eveidence n they don't,' she tweeted.
Jewellery designer Farah Ali Khan felt it was very unlike Saif. 'In the Saif - Sharma scuffle d part I find fishy is where Sharma states Saif told him "do u know who I am". Very unlike Saif. Celebrities are often targeted when they are out in public & usually in d company of their woman. Have bn witness to 1 such incident yrs ago. There is something amiss in ths incident &I'm sure d facts will come out soon.It's very unlike Saif to hit an elderly man or provoke a fight. The thing about public opinion is it is so easily judgemental & biased by media reporting. You are guilty before u can be proved otherwise,' she updated.
Kunal Kohli felt media was tilting against Saif because he was a star. 'Saif explained the whole incident on tv just now. It's unfair to tilt opinions against anyone just because he's a star. Without knowing Saif's side of what happened how can anyone just believe what this guys saying is true,' he tweeted.
Music composer Vishal Dadlani wrote: 'Let me put it this way. If saif was provoked or hit first, i think he did what many of us would do. By 'us', i mean myself and you guys.'
Director Anubhav Sinha thinks media is using Saif's Padmashree status to sensationalize. 'TV Celebrating Saif's Pdmashree tonight more than ever before.Makes for good sensation.Anyone interested in what actually happened? Have personally seen stars take a lot of shit because they MUST behave responsibly. I am sure this coin has two sides too. I mustn't take sides if I don't know the whole story. NOR SHOULD YOU,' he wrote.
Author Shobhaa De tweeted: 'Some guys refuse to play it 'saif'! What to do?Agent Iqbal may help Agent Vinod break records, not noses!'
Sherlyn Chopra wrote: 'Guess, Saif didn't play safe this time! Or may be he was provoked!'
