Actor John Abraham has refuted reports that he slapped a fan during a film promotion event in Mumbai.
Apparently a photographer from the media had also set his camera up for a picture, but before he could click, John allegedly began threatening him.
According to sources close to the ‘Dishoom’ actor, in an attempt to grab John’s attention, a fan scratched him and grabbed his T-shirt.
John turned around to grab hold of the fan and pulled him up for his irresponsible behaviour, following which he proceeded to his car.
However, in a statement issued today on behalf of the actor, his spokesperson said, â€œThe episode has been blown out of proportion. John would never hurt a fan intentionally. The fan even met John at his residence to apologies to him for his irresponsible behaviour.â€
