Aditya Pancholi, Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut has been very vocal about being in an abusive relationship when she had just started out in Bollywood. She also had no qualms in naming the person in public – Aditya Pancholi. Now, in the wave of her recent interviews and her descriptions of the repeated physical assaults she went through, Aditya and his wife Zarina Wahab have given their versions of the episode, with Aditya even calling her ‘mad’.

Kangana’s sister Rangoli has responded equally fiercely to Zarina and Aditya’s statements on Twitter. In addition to all this, a video with a man claiming to have seen Aditya assault Kangana has recently surfaced on social media.

Here’s his account of the night –

Years ago, while riding my bike, around 12-12.30 am, I saw a girl screaming in a rickshaw outside J W Marriot Hotel, Juhu, Mumbai. She kept asking the rickshaw driver to drive faster. During this time, a white car suddenly came and completely blocked the rickshaw on the corner of the road. When I looked into the rickshaw, the girl inside saw at me and said ‘please help me’ repeatedly. By this time, a tall, bald man came out of the white car and dragged the crying girl by her hair. I got down from my bike and tried to intervene. The man was Aditya Pancholi and the girl was Kangana Ranaut. Aditya was punching Kangana. When I went to hold him back, he said ‘Sardarji, don’t meddle, this is a personal matter’. I said ‘if this is your personal matter, solve it inside your house’. By this time, a crowd of 8-10 people started forming and we controlled him. While this was happening, Kangana jumped on the other side of the road and escaped from there. I informed the police and also some journalists from Mid-Day. The way he attacked her, it was very clear case of physical assault. As of today, Kangana Ranaut has taken a stand against Aditya Pancholi, she should register an FIR immediately. I am ready to stand as a witness in court, I am ready to give my statement to the police.
