Pulkit Samrat loses cools, manhandles two photographers outside court
Mumbai - 24 Jan 2017 14:03 IST
Actor Pulkit Samrat shocked onlookers outside the Bandra Family court when he manhandled a couple of photographers. Samrat had come to the court for divorce proceedings with his estranged wife Shweta Rohira.
A picture of the Fukrey (2013) actor catching the photographers by his collar has been doing the rounds on the Internet. While one photographer belonged to a leading website, the other one assaulted was a freelancer.
It is not clear what exactly transpired, but rumour has it that Samrat lost his cool after a photographer asked him what happened at the divorce proceedings.
However, a source who witnessed the incident rubbished this theory.
"There was no provocation from any photographer. Pulkit Samrat had arrived at the court at 1 pm for his divorce proceedings. His wife came out first and she obliged the photographers. Samrat then came out and the moment he saw the photographers, he turned his back and started to walk away. A few of them followed him when his lawyer intervened and warned them to leave his client alone. The photographers merely reminded his lawyer that they were doing their jobs. Moments later, Samrat came in their direction and raised his hands at one of photographers. Samrat then turned onto another photographer who was shooting him," said our source.
Samrat remained unavailable for comment.
This is not the first time Samrat has found himself in trouble with the press. Last year, Samrat had lashed out at reporters after he was pictured with his Junooniyat (2016) co-star actress Yami Gautam coming out of Mumbai airport.
