Did John Abraham slap a fan? Here’s what he has to say

Actor John Abraham has refuted reports that he slapped a fan during a film promotion event. There were reports that yesterday John allegedly slapped a fan after the latter tried to grab his arm and pulled him for a selfie.

Also, apparently a photographer from the media had set his camera up for a picture, but before he could click, John allegedly began threatening him. According to sources close to the “Madras Cafe” 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, “The episode has been blown out of proportion. John would never hurt a fan intentionally. The fan even met John at his residence to apologise to him for his irresponsible behaviour.”

The alleged incident happened yesterday after the trailer launch of John’s upcoming film “Force 2”. Hailing the “surgical strikes” byIndian Army on terror launch pads across the LoC, John Abraham said it is time the country responds to terrorism.

“We are proud, we should have done this earlier. I am talking about LoC. It’s high time we respond to terrorism.As a country we are very tolerant and I think we should put our foot down and show what India can do,” John told reporters here at the trailer launch of Force 2.
