The actor has accused a security guard from a Juhu building of pinching his son Aarav's buttocks, while the guard has another story to tell.
The security agency however claims that the guard was simply doing his duty by preventing the boy from entering a meter room in the builiding, reports Mumbai Mirror.A resident of The Grand Eastern Shores told the tabloid that Aarav and Akshay were visiting a family friend, when Akshay got drawn into a conversation with a resident upstairs. With his father’s attention moving away from him, the boy wandered down to the building’s lobby and straight into the room which had all the electricity meters. Bhandari, who spotted the eight-year-old walk into the meter room, sprang to his feet and pulled him out of there, before the child could touch any live wire and hurt himself.
Akshay and Twinkle, however, claim that their son did not go into the meter room, and the guard is just trying to save his face. According to reports, the actor even slapped the guard, not once, but twice.
Twinkle Khanna told Mumbai Mirror, “My son did not go into the meter room. That was simply Bhandari’s version. My son was climbing the stairs with his friend when Bhandari came behind them and pinched his buttocks. My son quickly brought it to my notice. At this point of time his friend said that Bhandari had done this to him too. Another child from their group also had a similar experience. Our son has been brave enough to talk about this to us. He has been a hero.”
The guard has been fired from his job.
