Actor Mink Brar, who found celebrity photographer Jagdish Mali abandoned on the road in Mumbai last week, now stands the threat of being sued by the Malis. However, the actor is unperturbed. “I haven’t heard from them, but I’ve been told that they are planning legal action. But on what basis will they sue me? For helping him? When I saw him, he was in such a state that I jumped out of the car to help him. He could have been run over by a vehicle. It took my brother an hour to get him to wear shorts,” she says.
Reacting to Jagdish’s comment that he can’t be called unwell just because he didn’t recognise Mink, she says, “He had s**t on him when we found him. Not just him, his bed sheet and even his house had s**t in it. I didn’t go to his house, but I had called Salman Khan when I found him there and he sent people over. Those people told me about this. Now he can say that it was chocolate, but even those people know that he was not having chocolate.”However, Mink says that she doesn’t hold anything against the photographer. "He doesn’t want to harm me. He is just trying to cover up and it’s ok. I think the media should give him a break and not talk about this now. I haven’t cooked up this story. Yesterday, a Punjabi filmmaker called me and said that he saw me on the road with a semi-naked man," she says.
