Ajay Devgn. one of the most reputed actors of B-town allegedly got beaten up outside a pub in Delhi. Rumour or not, let’s see?
The Golmaal franchise fame Bollywood star caught the limelight recently when an alleged video of him being beaten up surfaced online. The video, of a brawl outside Delhi’s Aerocity mall, went viral in a matter of few hours allegedly capturing the star getting beaten. Many people ruthlessly forwarded the video and showed lack of courtesy or concern by carelessly forwarding the video with captions like “Ajay Devgn gets beaten by bouncers after causing a drunk spat!” and some even went so far as inventing fake news like ” Ajay Devgn caught in a lewd act with a drunk girl, beaten mercilessly!”.
The Viral Video
The video that made rounds was very pixelated, and unclear. Here’s the video that allegedly showed Ajay Devgn in a spat outside Delhi Aercocity Mall.
The video above was shot at Delhi Aerocity mall, where a fight broke amongst two groups of people when their vehicles brushed each other. The groups are shown fighting and hitting each other mercilessly for something so trivial. They went to grab each other’s collars and hit each other with bouts of verbal abuse. Surely not the kind of controversy a superstar like Ajay Devgn would would to be a face of!
Here’s what team Ajay Devgn has to say about the video…
The PR team for Ajay Devgn took to the internet and released a formal statement to address the issue
“Post the promotion of Tanhaji-The Unsung Warrior in January 2020, actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn has not visited Delhi. So media reports of a brawl involving the superstar outside a Delhi pub are absolutely baseless and untrue. We request news agencies and media to please note that Mr. Devgn has been in Mumbai the entire time shooting for Maidaan, MayDay and Gangubai Kathiawadi and he hasn’t set foot in the capital in 14 months. Request all media to please cross-check before putting out anything,”
The statement clarified that the alleged video was not pertaining to the actor. They also clarified that the actor has not travelled to the national capital in 14 months, His last visit to Delhi was for the promotion of his movie, Tanhaji-The Unsung Warrior in January 2020. They also disclosed his occupancies with a various number of projects involving him, like Maidaan, Mayday and the Alia Bhatt Starrer, Gangubai Kathiawadi, which prevent him from travel.
Ajay Devgn takes to Himself to Clear the Air
The star received a number of calls and messages from concerned people after the video surfaced. Despite his team’s statement, the star made sure he officially let a word out regarding the whole baseless alleged rumours. He took to Twitter to share his word about the situation. Here is what the actor had to say
Some ‘doppelgänger’ of mine seems to have got into trouble.
I’ve been getting concerned calls. Just clarifying, I’ve not traveled anywhere. All reports regarding me being in any brawl are baseless. Happy Holi

The Actor further clarified in his tweet, that the video did not involve him and that a doppelganger “seems to have got into trouble”. He also reinstates the fact that he hasn’t travelled and denies any allegations related to the video. He ends with a happy note, wishing the Twitterati a Happy Holi!
So who is the Doppelganger?
The video went viral and the concerned men were arrested. The two nabbed in the brawl outside the Aerocity Mall in Delhi were namely Taranjit Singh (31), Janakpuri Resident and dealer of cars, and Naveen Kumar(29), a property dealer from Chhawla Village. A senior officer reported that the two parties did not file a case against each other, but were booked under sections of affray and other relevant sections for violation of coronavirus protocols.
The video was indeed used by many media houses to gain TRP. But is it fair on the actor to go through such mindless scrutiny? We all know Ajay Devgn is a gentleman. But does it only take one unclear pixelated video to sow the seeds of doubts? Our media Houses should know better! Anyway, let us know in the comments what you think about the Ajay Devgn.
