Bigg Boss 7 winner and Bollywood actor Gauhar Khan was slapped by a member of the audience while she was shooting for a television show at FilmCity on Sunday night.
The accused, Mohammad Akil Malik, 24, was pinned down by security persons on the sets and handed over to the Aarey Colony police. Officials said Malik had objected to the actor’s dress sense and for dancing to racy numbers. He also tried to touch her. He is likely to be booked on charges of molestation and assault.
The model-turned actress was anchoring the grand finale of the show, which was attended by bigwigs like Arjun Kapoor and music director duo Sajid-Wajid.
Reportedly, the accused was present in a crowd of 2000 and was teasing Gauhar during the show. She protested the teasing but events took a sharp turn soon after.
