On Tuesday (December 9), there were rumours claiming that Akshay Kumar had slapped a fan on the sets of a film. The man had apparently tried to breach the security cordon and even tried clicking pictures with the actor without seeking his permission, thereby leading to Akshay losing his cool.

However, a friend of the actor is quick to deny the incident, saying, “Akshay is flabbergasted by the rumour. He has never hit anyone. He is surprised by how people go to any length to make up a story — even one that’s technically wrong, since he is currently shooting for a different film from the one mentioned in the report.”

We couldn’t reach Akshay for a comment, but the actor tweeted on Tuesday, saying, “Amused at seeing the news on various platforms about me losing my cool and slapping a fan on the sets of Gabbar! For the past 2 months I have been shooting for Brothers, funny how some idle minds cook up the most ridiculous stories (sic).”

Genelia Deshmukh apparently slapped a fan in Vijayawada in 2010. The person was taken into police custody for trying to misbehave with the actor.

Reportedly, a female fan in Mangalore was so ecstatic when John Abraham walked past her in 2012, that she tried to grab his arm and bite him. The shocked actor allegedly reacted by slapping her.

In 2010, Salman Khan reportedly slapped a fan at Anil Kapoor’s birthday bash. It’s believed that the man, who was in his mid-twenties, had rushed towards the actor when he was alighting from his car, and hugged and kissed him.

Back in 2008, Govinda apparently slapped a fan while shooting for his film, Money Hai Toh Honey Hai. The actor stated that the fan tried to get too close to the female dancers and actors on the sets and also tried to misbehave with some of them.

In a recent interview, Kajol admitted to having punched a fan in the face because “he was obnoxious”.
