In an interview to a popular daily, Ajaz shared that he was unhappy because he was not allowed to put forth his version of the scuffle. “I am hurt because of the way I was treated. I am disappointed as I wasn’t allowed to present my version. Everything happened in the heat of the moment. He (Ali) hit me first; I simply reacted,” he said.
Ajaz also questioned the lack of wisdom on the show’s new host Farah Khan’s part as she called him aadmi ya bandar for his inability to entertain. “If Salman was there the channel would’ve had a hard time explaining why I was expelled,” DNA quoted Ajaz as saying.
He even added that it was Ali, not him, who instigated the fight in the first place. “Ali kept calling me ‘Nakli Shah Rukh,” he told DNA. To another daily, he said, “Ali’s elbow hit me, but that wasn’t shown on TV. I was feeling uneasy and felt pain, and applied ice after my exit. But when the pain didn’t subside, I went to see a doctor two days later, who told me that there’s a swelling. I have been recuperating since the last few days,” the daily quoted Ajaz as saying.
