Actor Ajay Devgn Denies Being Caught in Brawl in New Delhi, Says His “Doppelgänger” Got Into Trouble

Ajay Devgn, the Hindi actor who will be seen in the film RRR, took to Twitter on Monday to respond to rumours alleging that he was involved in a fight in New Delhi recently.


In a recent video, two groups of people can be seen engaged in a brawl in New Delhi’s Aerocity area on March 26. According to comments on social media, one of the persons being beaten up resembled Devgn.

Responding to the speculations, Devgn wrote on Twitter: “Some ‘doppelgänger’ of mine seems to have got into trouble. I’ve been getting concerned calls. Just clarifying, I’ve not traveled anywhere. All reports regarding me being in any brawl are baseless.”

The video was first uploaded by India Today on March 27 and their report stated that a clash broke out between two groups after a car crashed into another. Two people were arrested by the Delhi Police in connection with this case, according to a report by NDTV.

“Those arrested were identified as Taranjit Singh (31), a resident of Janakupuri who deals in sale and purchase of cars and Naveen Kumar (29), a resident of Chhawla village who is a property dealer. Both of them have no previous criminal history,” the NDTV report quoted the police as saying.


Recently, Devgn’s car was stopped in Mumbai for around 15 minutes by a man claiming to be a supporter of the farmers’ protest. In a video, the man was heard asking the actor how he could hate Punjab. The incident took place after several Hindi film actors posted similar-worded tweets in support of the government after international pop star Rihanna tweeted wondering why nothing was being said about the internet shutdown in parts of New Delhi amid the ongoing protest against the new farm laws.

Apart from SS Rajamouli’s RRR, in which he will make an extended cameo appearance, Devgn will also be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, starring Alia Bhatt in the lead.
