Imran Khan is known for his calm and composed demeanour, but the actor recently got into a scuffle while shooting for his next, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein. We've been informed that while he was shooting a scene, which shows him getting scared of dogs and jumping on a car, Imran got into a fight with the dog trainer on set.

Ask him what happened and Imran explains, "The scene involved Kareena (Kapoor-Khan) feeding stray dogs and I'm supposed to be afraid of them. While I was walking to the location, I noticed that the local dog trainer was present there. He had a stick in his hand and, at one point, he whacked a dog. That's when I got angry." Imran further elaborates, "I walked up to him and pushed him, indicating that he stop at once. At that time, one of his assistants came from behind and hit me. But before I could turn around, the security personnel had intervened."

In the past too, Imran has been involved with a campaign that advocated the adoption of stray animals and is a pet parent as well. "I have adopted two stray dogs and five stray cats. They're all in my house, so I strongly support this cause," says the actor.
