MUMBAI: Looks like Puneet Singh Ratn, the lead actor of Ram Gopal Varma’s upcoming film Satya 2, is taking his character of an underworld don a little too seriously. In August, Hitlist carried the story of him beating up his driver and an assistant director.
On Thursday morning, he went a step ahead and twice slapped Rupesh Jain, who works as the marketing head of RGV’s company, RGV Productions. And he did so in full public view.
According to an eye-witness, “Puneet stormed into the office, and started abusing Rupesh Jain who was sitting at his desk. Suddenly, Puneet started hitting him and after slapping him twice, he walked out. Jain was too stunned to react first. But later, he decided to report the matter to the police at the Oshiwara police station.
Rupesh says, “Puneet called me in the morning and threatened me. But I didn’t think he would come to the office and hit me. He just showed up, abused me, slapped me and left. I have registered an NC in Oshiwara police station.”
Apparently Puneet had issues with the way the movie was being marketed and is also unhappy with the film’s release being postponed.
Rupesh further adds, “He had some issues with the way we were marketing the movie and he is holding me responsible for everything.”
Puneet refused to acknowledge the fact that he went to RGV’s office. But later he called and said, “No comment.” (Courtesy Mid-Day)
