Saif Ali Khan rubbishes airport tiff reports, to sue news agency
Reports have been flowing in about Saif Ali Khan's alleged tiff with the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel at the Lucknow airport.
The actor, however, denies any such incident took place.
Saif Ali Khan says, "This is totally baseless. There was no tiff of any kind. What has come out as 'news' is in fact totally distorted. It was a polite conversation and nothing as dramatic as what is being put on print actually happened at all."
Instead it was Viveck Anand, Joint General Manager - Operations at the airport, who reached out to Saif immediately after and they spent some together over tea. "We have known each other for 20 years and he is a good friend of mine. We had tea together", adds Saif.
The Bollywood actor is disturbed though with the news-piece making rounds and is now set to sue the news agency that came up with it. "Guess it is an overzealous reporter at play here who has distorted the entire fact", says Saif, "It is weird that media has come down to this level. I am inclined to take an action now and my lawyers are working on suing the ones responsible behind this news-piece. Stories like these are damaging."
On contacted, Viveck too clarified, "Mr. Khan didn't misbehave with anyone at the airport. In fact it was a pleasure meeting him. I look forward to seeing him soon."
