Bollywood actor Pulkit Samrat is once in the headlines but for all the wrong reasons.
The actor, who along with his estranged wife and Salman Khan's rakhi siser Shweta Rohira has filed a divorce case in a family court in Bandra, got into a fight soon after he left the court.
It was reported that the paparazzi had bombarded Samrat with questions regarding his troubled marriage which irked him to an extent that he man-handled one of the photojournalists.
Reportedly, Pulkit was making an attempt to avoid the paparazzi given that his marriage was not a smooth ride and he didn't want to get it limelighted again.
Indeed, this scuffle has bagged a lot of negative publicity for the 'Sanam Re' actor.
However, Pulkit has clarified the reports saying it was the photo journo who misbehaved with him at the first place.
“They instigated and pushed my uncle. That is not done! If you are nice with me, then even I will cooperate," Pulkit told a leading daily.
He further added, “After letting them (photographers) take a couple of pictures, I was heading back with my family when this photographer came and chased us. We requested him to let us go, but he pushed me and my uncle, and even abused us. That’s when I retaliated.”
Interestingly, Pulkit's divorce case with Shweta had bought the actor in bad light earlier as well.
Notably, Pulkit and Shweta have called off their relationship within a year of their wedding.
It was reported that the actor was cheating on Rohira with his co-star Yami Gautam, which eventually lead to their separation.
While, Pulkit has stated that he has been friends with Yami, reports are rife that Yami has a major role to play in his divorce with Shweta.
