King Khan involved in fight with Shirish Kunder

Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan allegedly punched and slapped Farah Khan`s filmmaker husband Shirish Kunder at a private party thrown by Sanjay Dutt. The fracas took place late last night at the "Agneepath" success party at a nightclub where Shah Rukh is said to have roughed up Kunder, who has been taking potshots at the actor and his mega budget film "Ra.One" on Twitter.

The "Jaan-E-Mann" director reportedly left the party with a swollen face. The party also came to an end and Dutt and SRK left with the owner of the nightclub soon after. Despite repeated attempts Shah Rukh remained unavailable for comment. Farah and Kunder spoke about the incident in a statement but denied they were going to pursue the matter with police.

"Shahrukh has always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out a problem, and that it means the person who`s hitting has either a personal or professional crisis going on. So it saddens me to see him doing the same," Farah said in a statement.

Kunder took to his Twitter account to say: "Thanks for all your concern & wishes. We are very grateful. Contrary to rumours, we have no intention of filing a FIR or police complaint." Dutt, who was also present when the incident happened denied reports that he was also involved in the fight, saying he only tried to break up the fight.

"When a fight takes place so everybody who is around is blamed. Sanjay entered to stop the fight. He had no fight or anything of that sort with Shirish," Dutt`s spokesperson told PTI. Once very good friends, Farah choreographed SRK in several of his films and directed him in "Main Hoon Naa" and "Om Shanti Om" but their friendship soured after she cast Akshay Kumar in "Tees Maar Khan" in 2010.
