Shilpa Shetty and husband Raj Kundra's leisure time caught the headlines for a rather unpleasant incident lately after two photographers were manhandles for clicking the couple's picture. Reportedly, the Kundra were out on a date at Bastion restaurant in Bandra, Mumbai when the paparazzi tried to capture Shilpa and Raj.
Apparently, while Shilpa-Raj were seen posing happily for the shutterbugs, it was the bouncers of the restaurant who got into a scuffle with the photographers.
According to an ABP report, the bouncers were clearing the way for Shilpa and Raj when they felt lensmen got a little too close to the duo.
A video of the incident has even gone viral where bouncers are seen beating the photographers who got badly injured and were hospitalised lates.
The media reports suggest, the an FIR has been registered and the bouncers have been reportedly arrested.
The restaurant even condemend the incident and issued an official statement saying, “We’re saddened and shocked by the incident that took place outside Bastian last night. We have celebrities and well-known guests visiting us frequently, and every experience has so far been smooth. During last night’s incident, the people involved were personnel of Tough Security who are hired for Bastian via external vendors - as is the practice, the security agency assigns their personnel to us and other establishments based on who is available that day. All the Bastian staff, as well as the management, was inside in the restaurant on the second floor at the time of the incident - we were made aware of the same a while after it began. This was a highly unfortunate situation that escalated beyond anything we could have imagined. As soon as the Bastian team found out, we took remedial measures to get things under control. We are changing security agencies today as we do not want to take the risk of this happening again, as well as personally apologising to the media involved. We are also collecting all information so that we are able to offer to take care of any and all medical bills that may have resulted due to this incident.”
Notably, Raj and Shilpa hasn't issued any statement in this regard yet.
On the work front, Shilpa Shetty will soon be seen on an upcoming live game show for the small screen, Aunty Boli Lagao Boli: Sabse Kam Sabse Anokhi which will be aired on Colors.
