Truth about 'slap' incident on 'Pathan' sets


Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Pathan’ is currently being shot at a studio in Mumbai and recently an unfortunate incident took place on the sets. While reports suggested that director Siddharth Anand had an ugly spat with an assistant director, a trade source denied and shared, “The report that director Siddharth Anand and an assistant director got into a fight is absolutely baseless and untrue. Sid and his team share a bond beyond years and they all look up to him as their big brother.”

The source further tagged the ‘slapping incident’ was absolutely baseless and untrue and revealed, “The truth of the matter is that a light-man was slightly injured while doing his job and he was being tended to. Thankfully, it wasn’t serious. But a junior artist, was taking a video of the incident with an ulterior motive to circulate it. Siddharth Anand first instructed the said person to not to do the same as it was highly insensitive. However, he was slyly trying to do the same again. That’s when the director, as the leader of the team, sternly asked him to handover his mobile phone and exit the set. Sid was upset that someone can be so insensitive. The junior artist, however, tried to became aggressive and the security immediately escorted him out of the sets. That’s the plain truth. Nobody got physical on the sets and there certainly was no slapping. It is utterly incorrect.” Shoot of ‘Pathan’ was reportedly stalled but later resumed.

Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, ‘Pathan’ also features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles.
