A couple of media reports published on Wednesday claimed a driver from Chamoli in Uttarakhand was arrested for assaulting the actor during the shooting.
The reports said the drunken man managed to reach out Arjun in the latter’s vanity van where he tried to twist his hand and manhandled him. As things went out of control, police was called in along with bodyguards who nabbed the person. The report said the man was booked for attempt to assault.

Police and other security personnel rushed to the spot and arrested Kumar and booked him for attempt to assault. His driving license was also cancelled for being in an inebriated state while on duty.
Arjun took to Twitter to deny the incident of saying he doesn’t have any clue of such happening.
The ‘Ishaqzaade’ actor admitted there was a disturbance off camera but the local force ensured it didn’t reach him. He said his entire family was in panic this morning because of the news report.
How come I have no clue about this happening ?
The crowd here has been peaceful. There might have been a disturbance off camera but the local force has never let it reach till me. My entire family was in panic this morning so using words like assault isn’t cool just for effect. https://t.co/Qd8yFWWUd2
